CONOR McGREGOR furiously hit out at Michael Bisping as the pair traded threats.
McGregor, filming a Roadhouse reboot with Jake Gyllenhaal, surprisingly took aim at UFC legend-turned actor Bisping.
He tweeted: “All these little twerps wanna be actors now. Little twerps, There’s Only One Mac Daddy.
“Bad to the bone but with a good heart. Action with Jake gyl or Rom com with Sarah Jessica. Bisping, member that show you were in. Ye me neither.”
The swipe came as a surprise to Manchester’s Bisping, 43, who discussed it on his podcast.
He said, via MMA Fighting: “I was just befuddled when I saw that.
“I’m like, where is this coming from? What’s all that about? I mean, God bless him.
“I’m actually on set in Bulgaria and we stopped for a little break, looked at my phone as you do and someone had showed me that on DMs.
“I wasn’t annoyed or anything, just scratching my head, going where’s that coming from out of blue?
“God bless him, he’s doing his first acting role and he’s all pumped about it.”
