No one is safe from Conor McGregor's trash talk. When McGregor opens his mouth, anyone and everyone could be a potential victim of his venom.

The latest verbal casualties? Eddie Alvarez and Tyron Woodley.

McGregor, according to Fox Sports, said neither champion deserves a big money fight:

You can't fight on Fight Pass and you can't fight on these shows that generate zip, (Shows) that generate zero and then start demanding these things.

Alvarez recently knocked out Rafael dos Anjos on a Fight Pass show to win the UFC lightweight championship. Woodley knocked out Robbie Lawler at UFC 201 to become the welterweight champ.

Alvarez has called for a fight against McGregor, while Woodley has called out George St-Pierre and Nick Diaz as fighters he would want to fight instead of No. 1 contender Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson.

At a media day on Friday in Las Vegas, McGregor again took credit for the financial success of the UFC, according to Fox Sports.

"I came in and I brought it all. I broke every record and then began demanding everything. I just feel they're bums. 95-percent of the game is bums," McGregor reportedly said.

McGregor will fight Nate Diaz on August 20 at UFC 202, in a rematch following one of the biggest PPVs of all time. Diaz submitted McGregor with a rear naked choke in that fight, but McGregor has vowed to return with a vengeance.
