Conor McGregor knows a lot of ways to say 'f*** the haters'

New, comments

Conor McGregor, shortly after suffering the first loss in UFC 196 this weekend, shows no signs of changing from the brash, defiant competitor he's been his entire career. He posted this message on Instagram, which reads half like a strange poetry stanza a crazy English professor made you read freshman year, and half like the saltiest post-breakup text ever.

I stormed in and put it all on the line. I took a shot and missed. I will never apologize for taking a shot. Shit happens. I'll take this loss like a man. I will not shy away from it. I will not change who I am. If another champion goes up 2 weights let me know. If your tired of me talking money, take a nap. I'll still be here when you wake up with the highest PPV and the gate. Still talking multi 7's. Thank you to the true support and fuck the hate that came out of the woodwork. I love it all. Its still steak for breakfast. I've been here many times in my life in some form or another. I'll eat it all and come back stronger. Aldo you are a pussy. Dos anjos you are a pussy. When the history books are written, I showed up. You showed up on Twitter. To the fans! Never ever shy away from challenges. Never run from adversity. Face yourself head on. Nate I will see you again.

Even in defeat, he somehow manages to call out two rivals and basically say "F*** the haters" a dozen times over while dropping this bio-worthy line: "When the history books are written, I showed up. You showed up on Twitter." I'd like to imagine his first version just said "trigger fingers turn to Twitter fingers" before that got edited a bit.

I will never apologize for taking a shot.

Whoa, this might actually just be an audition for Hamilton.

Jose Aldo, McGregor's likely next opponent, didn't seem too worried.

And MMA legend Renzo Gracie had jokes!

Never change, UFC.
