Paul Felder revealed in an interview on UFC Media afternoon that Conor McGregor stated ‘F**k you’ to him following his departure last January against Donald Cerrone.

The Irish Dragon’ was a cage-side as part of the commentary team for UFC 246. McGregor defeated Cerrone in only 40 seconds from the Welterweight bout and can be set to go back to combat Dustin Poirier on January 23, 2021.

Despite Conor cussing out Felder, the 35-year-old felt it had been among the greatest moments he’s witnessed as part of their UFC team during his period as an analyst. Paul Felder is set to take on former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos on just a week’s notice after Islam Makhachev dropped out of this weekend’s most important event. The Philadelphia native last fought in February when he lost a close decision to Kiwi Lightweight Dan Hooker.

Paul Felder, who’s currently ranked 7th in the Lightweight division, teased retirement following the fight. However, the possibility of fighting a former champion has urged the 35-year-old to go back to the Octagon.

Paul Felder, who has notable wins such as James Vick, Edson Barboza, and Charles Oliveira on his record, expects a triumph against Dos Anjos propels him to the title picture:

This is the crazy stuff that will either set me up for a major fight and move my career forward or I’ll prove that I got balls that are bigger than anybody else’s in the division. If he beats me, he’s a former champion! I don’t give a sh*t! It’s Rafael dos Anjos!

I mean, I’ve got nothing to lose other than some brain cells and some broken bones and things as usual but I will heal up and I’ll be fine. I’m fully capable of beating him, that I will make everyone clear of! I’m not coming in here to get a payday.

With Khabib Nurmagomedov declaring his retirement after the win against Justin Gaethje, the Lightweight division has really opened up. It remains to be seen who wins the sprint to the top at the lack of the Russian champion.
