Conor McGregor & Francis Ngannou

MMA superstar Conor McGregor has taken aim at arguably the scariest fighter in UFC history, heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou.

Since UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman’s big win over Jorge Masvidal on Saturday night, McGregor has been ripping Usman on social media. During the series of tweets, McGregor stated that he would move up to 170 pounds next year to earn his third divisional title by defeating “The Nigerian Nightmare.”

And now it looks like Ngannou has been caught in the crossfire between Usman and McGregor. “The Predator” is close friends with Usman and he worked as his cornerman for Usman’s bout against Masvidal on April 24 at UFC 261.

Referring to Ngannou as “Big Frano,” McGregor tweeted on Monday that he would take out the heavyweight champ alongside the welterweight champ.

Fox’s Skip Bayless posed a question on Twitter: “What shot would you give Conor McGregor vs Usman?”

McGregor responded, “A shot of Proper Twelve. I’ll do him and big frano same time.”

“Me and big Frano. Blocking out my mutant green Lamborghini,” McGregor wrote, sharing a picture of himself with Ngannou. “Careful what you wish for with me.”
