Conor McGregor's trash-talking tweet is sure to stir up some controversy in UFC circles.

The Notorious had a cut off both the featherweight and lightweight divisions of the UFC with this tweet:

As champions of both divisions, the Dublin man has every right to taunt his fellow fighters - not that McGregor needs a reason for this type of goading.

UFC fans wait with baited breath on the announcement of the Crumlin fighter's next bout as speculation continues over what weight McGregor will next appear in the octagon at.

On renowned podcast The MMA Hour, John Kavanagh told Ariel Helwani that the trilogy fight against Nate Diaz for the lightweight belt would be his preferred option for McGregor.

He singled out Max Holloway (who the Dubliner defeated in 2013) as the most dangerous competitor in the featherweight division, while failing to rule out a move up to welterweight in what would be a triple-belt challenge.

Owen Roddy, who was in McGregor's corner as he defeated Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 for the lightweight title, reinforced the notion that the Irish UFC star could move up to welterweight in another history-making attempt during his MMA Hour appearance.

Asked about who he would like to see McGregor next take on, Roddy answered: "Maybe [Tyron] Woodley. For him to go up and fight for a third belt...so maybe Woodley.

"Diaz again is a great one. It's what fans would want to see again. The fans would want to see something special.

"The Diaz fight would be special. The Woodley fight would be special too."

McGregor is a seriously hot topic around the world since his emphatic Madison Square Garden victory, with pop superstar Justin Bieber among the famous faces seen attempting his now-trademark 'billy strut' in the wake of the win.
