Conor McGregor threw some serious shade at the WWE last week, calling their roster a bunch of "p-ssies."

For obvious reasons, this did not sit well with the wrestling community, and many fans and wrestlers fired back, some even challenging McGregor to fights. Completely undeterred though, McGregor again took aim at the world of professional wrestling earlier today at a media event, in particular dishing on John Cena, one of the WWE's biggest stars.

"John Cena. He's 40. He's 40 years of age," McGregor said. "He's walking around in a luminous orange t-shirt and a headband talking about nobody can see him. We can see him right there. He's a big fat, 40-year-old failed Mr. Olympia mother f-cker."

McGregor also replied to wrestling icon Ric Flair, who previously accused McGregor of stealing his gimmick.

"I don't know what to say to Ric Flair, this ain't no gimmick," McGregor said. "This is the real sh-t. I've got to get in and fight a man for real ... no script, no nothing.

"He was talking about bringing some other wrestler guys out to challenge me. Come bring it, then. This is the real sh-t over here. You know want to come over, we can fight no problem ... Come at me and see what happens."

McGregor did however clarify that he holds some WWE personalities in high regard.

"No disrespect to the dons of the game, the McMahons," McGregor added. "[Vince McMahon] is a f-cking legend. They wrote Vinny off a few years ago ... then he rose back up and now he's back in the billionaire club.

"What he's been able to do with that bunch of dweebs he has over there has been phenomenal and I respect him for that. And then of course the OGs of the game: The Rock, Stone Cold, they're cool mother f-ckers. Even Ric Flair is a cool mother f-cker."

That being said, McGregor has nothing nice to say about the more modern roster of WWE talent.

"I'm just speaking the truth," McGregor said. "That new age of those guys are absolute dweebs. They just seem messed up in the head. I don't know what it is. When I listen to them talk, when I listen to them carry themselves, they just don't seem right in the head. That might have been a bit rudeness for me to say, but again, it ain't trash talk, it's truth talk."
