Conor McGregor put the featherweight division on notice with a recent tweet. He spoke about each Top 10 name in the UFC’s division, which included Nik Lentz. The comments didn’t amuse Lentz.
“First order of business is to slow your stroll, sonnyboy,” said Lentz to Bloody Elbow. “Beat a few guys before you start sounding off. You had the perfect venue, a receptive crowd, and all the time in the world to prepare.”
Since McGregor called the entire division out, his return to the Octagon isn’t known since an ACL tear. He wants to return this year, but 2014 is looking more likely. He’s 2-0 for the UFC with the recent win coming from Max Holloway.
Lentz has won three in a row since dropping to featherweight. He takes on Dennis Bermudez at UFC Fight Night 31.
Bermudez is coming off a pair of split-decision wins. Since becoming a featherweight, he’s 4-1.
UFC Fight Night 31 is November 6 from Fort Campbell in Kentucky.
