Tyson Fury and Conor McGregor Twitter beef escalates as fight legends continue to take pot shots on social media

TYSON Fury and Conor McGregor have ratcheted up the trash talking in their extraordinary Twitter feud.

Boxing champ Fury earlier dismissed McGregor as a ‘bully’ after the MMA star branded him a ‘Versace t***’ in a spat over Billy Joe Saunders’ latest fight.

McGregor accused Fury of failing to help Saunders’ dad in a row with security at his son’s blockbuster battle with pound-for-pound king Canelo Alvarez.

Tempers appeared to have cooled on Sunday evening until Fury returned to Twitter to fire off a taunt over The Notorious’ recent UFC record.

He tweeted: “@TheNotoriousMMA has done more Tapping than MJ’s old dance shoes.”

And that seems to have ignited McGregor‘s famously short fuse, with the Irish hero letting fly with foul-mouthed salvo in Fury’s direction.

He tweeted: “Wipe his a*** with your tongue bro U missed a spot hahahahah.

“And I’m not talking Khabib u R** l***er, do what you’re told, I answer to no one.”

The 33-year-old former two-weight UFC champ appears to have been referencing Saunderswho Fury insisted was his pal in his earlier tweet dismissing McGregor as a bully.

Cryptically, McGregor also deleted and then replaced the original tweet in which he labeled Fury a ‘Versace t***’.

In its place he wrote another tweet along similar lines.

It read: “Oh no people don’t like me what will I ever do hahahahaaha idiot. You are just a little r** l***er bro. Thats all.

“You stood there while your friends father was being attacked and done nothing. That’s the be all end all bro. God luck, God bless.”

But any suggestion the ‘god bless’ was an attempt draw a line under the angry exchange was swept away with yet another McGregor tweet half an hour later.

In it he doubled down on the Versace accusations, tweeting a photo of Fury in a snazzy jacket at the Canelo vs Saunders event in Texas.

McGregor captioned it: “Get that Versace off you, you done nothing.”

Fury is set to return to the ring in an all-British bout with former sparring partner Dillian Whyte sometime in the spring.

McGregor meanwhile is eyeing a return to action after recovering from a horror broken leg sustained last July in his loss to Dustin Poirier.
