Following a threat from former dual-weight UFC champion Conor McGregor to “kill” him, Tom Aspinall has decided to cease discussing McGregor.
After being threatened by former dual-weight UFC champion Conor McGregor, Tom Aspinall has decided to stop discussing him.
McGregor is set to make a comeback later this year in a fight against Michael Chandler after suffering a leg injury at UFC 264 in 2021.
During a recent interview, Aspinall, a UFC heavyweight, recently expressed his lack of interest in the fight and how he is “over” McGregor dominating the UFC for the past decade.
‘Notorious’ caught wind of the comments and responded to Aspinall on social media with a threat, as he wrote:
“Mush head rat keep your comments to yourself. “Bum p****. Say sayonara to that [Gym King] deal kid. Starve you and kill you I will you f****** disrespectful p****. Don’t ever speak my name in disrespect again. Mush potato head.”
This caused Aspinall to initially make light of the situation by uploading a picture of his phone that showed his name crossed out and replaced by ‘Mush head rat’. However, Aspinall has now decided to respect McGregor’s wishes and refrain from speaking about him, saying, “He’s a scary guy. He made threats so I’m gonna back off.”
