While not in the featherweight division, Diego Sanchez did not escape the wrath of Conor McGregor recently.
McGregor, who discussed the UFC featherweights during a recent word association, also came after Sanchez after he stuck up for his fellow UFC veterans.
@DiegoSanchezUFC You're the fattest, sloppiest, slowest Martial Artist i've ever laid eyes on. I'd go upto 170 to whoop your fat ass. EASY.

Sanchez, set to face Gilbert Melendez at UFC 166, responded with, “I have bigger fish to fry,” and sent out a word of warning with “be ready when I see you at fight summit it’s on leprechaun!!!!”
