Conor McGregor recently unveiled the McGregor FAST MMA gloves and presented them to the winners of a contest held last month. Conor added the gloves to his wide range of McGregor FAST products available on social media. His design aims to prevent eye pokes by providing a cover over the user’s fingers.
Justin Gaethje had ridiculed Conor’s gloves on Twitter, calling them absolute garbage. He tweeted, “You didn’t design this you just put your name on someone else’s designs, made for as cheap as possible with shit foam and shit materials. They are garbage and you know it. Make your cheese though.”
Justin’s harsh critique was in response to Conor’s insulting tweet on Trevor Wittman, Gaethje’s head coach. Trevor invented gloves with this exact design way back but never wanted it tied to a single organization. Conor McGregor, known as ‘The Notorious One’ for a reason, responded in a way that befits his name.
Conor tweeted, “I’ve got a big chip on my shoulder and I’m gonna break another few faces with it.”

Conor McGregor and Justin Gaethje’s rivalry
Gaethje and McGregor have a bit of history of their own. Like basically every lightweight on the UFC roster, Gaethje has been calling for a fight with “Notorious” for some time. Gaethje was rumoured to be on the shortlist for McGregor’s return fight in 2020. Ultimately, McGregor ended up fighting Donald Cerrone instead.
After defeating Tony Ferguson at UFC 249, Gaethje challenged Khabib Nurmagomedov for the UFC Lightweight title. The Eagle forced The Highlight to submit in round two to retain his crown. Gaethje has not competed since then but he has stated that his goal is to get back to a title shot. But, a Conor fight could be a bigger payday for Justin, so it seems like he’s got some decisions to make.
