WWE Champion Drew McIntyre decided to spark Conor McGregor fans on Twitter with a hilarious Bernie Sanders meme.
The Scottish superstar, who had previously called out Tyson Fury, was eagerly awaiting the return of “ The Notorious ” against Dustin Poirier at UFC 257.
McGregor, who hasn’t fought since his outright victory over Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone last year, is hoping for an equally devastating display on Fight Island.
The Irishman knocked out Poirier when they met in featherweight at UFC 178, but the stakes are much higher now.
McGregor hasn’t fought at lightweight since his loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229, with many fans christening him “ McTapper ” after the fourth round neck crank forced him to submit.
And McIntyre, who was clearly keen to bring fans together using the popular Bernie Sanders meme, took the opportunity to pull his shot.
Photos of Senator Sanders sitting down wearing a pair of knitted mittens at President Joe Biden’s inauguration went viral last week.
The 79-year-old who climbed the back of McGregor’s neck has undoubtedly been greeted with derision and hilarity in equal measure, but Poirier is hoping to bring the meme to life on Fight Island.
