Conor McGregor’s latest fight ‘call out’ might be his most bizarre nemesis to date

Conor McGregor has appeared to call out Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar via Instagram.

McGregor has taken aim at virtually every fighter in the business during his time out injured with a broken leg.

The Irishman appears intent on staying relevant as he recovers from the injury he sustained in his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier.

His latest call-out is a little bizarre, even by his standards.

McGregor has appeared to state his desire not only to fight UFC Lightweight Champion Charles Oliveira… but also Neymar.

It’s not entirely clear what McGregor has against Neymar or why he’d have the remotest interest in fighting him, but McGregor doesn’t usually need a reason to make enemies.

It’s down to Dana White whether he wants to give McGregor a shot at Oliveira’s title, but arranging a fight with PSG star Neymar might be a little more complicated.

Neymar too is currently on the sidelines after suffering a nasty ankle injury while playing for PSG back in November.

Perhaps, when fit, he’d be willing to entertain the idea of going toe-to-toe with McGregor, but something tells us that he’d rather stick to the football…
