After the infamous bout between the Russian MMA fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov and the 'Notorious' Conor McGregor, which got out of hand within two minutes of McGregor tapping out as Nurmagomedov leapt over the octagon and attacked two of McGregor's men.
The incident led to the two rivals getting into a lot of trouble, as Khabib was banned for nine months with a hefty fine of $500,000 while McGregor was suspended for six months with a $50,000 fine off his match fee by the NAC for their roles in the UFC 229 post-fight melee.
The name of McGregor's potential next target is Kelvin Gastelum, the new UFC middleweight champion who won the title by forfeit after his opponent and former champion Robert Whittaker was ruled out of the main event of UFC 234 on Saturday in Melbourne, Australia after being diagnosed with a hernia and had to undergo immediate surgery.
McGregor did not approve of the fact that Gastelum was practically gifted the title without even throwing a single punch and showed his disapproval on Twitter in the most 'Conor McGregor' way he could:
Why is that worm holding the 185lb belt? There are worms crawling on his skin! It was absolutely ludicrous to even consider allowing him to compete. Let alone now walk around the arena shaking our fans hands.
Someone sort this, this instant. And sterilize that belt.
Calling Gastelum a 'worm', McGregor took a jab at the champion after he was trolled online for having some dermatologic issues.
Formerly working as a bounty hunter, the current UFC middleweight champion, Kelvin Gastelum fought his first professional battle in Mexico in 2010 against Jose Sanchez, who submitted to Gastelum after a barrage of punches destroyed his face.
He made his UFC debut in January 2013 during the Ultimate Fighter: Team Jones vs Team Sonnen and went on to win the Ultimate Fighter contest to become the youngest ever to do while having a brand new UFC contract under his belt.
Ever since his debut, Gastelum has entered the ring a total of 19 times out of which he's won 16 and lost the remaining three.
After the McGregor tweet, the fighter in Gastelum confidently replied to the notorious one:
Come take it off....
Little prick! https://t.co/823ptmymr8
Is this the comeback fight we are looking forward to as Conor's return is due in March?
McGregor's provocative tweet for the champ comes after he commended Anderson Silva's losing efforts in the battle against Israel Adesanya which replaced the Gastelum-Whittaker bout Down Under.
A couple of weeks ago, McGregor also tickled the thought of fighting 'The Cowboy' Donald Cerrone after his impressive knockout victory over Alexander Hernandez in January.
