Tyson Fury hits back at 'bully' Conor McGregor before Irishman deletes tweets

Tyson Fury has hit back at Conor McGregor after the Irish superstar replied to one of his tweets on social media but the MMA star has now backed down.

Fury uploaded a post on February 1 celebrating the career of Khabib Nurmagomedov and said he 'got out on top'.

Less than two weeks after the tweet, McGregor replied in a series of strange posts on Twitter, including a strange reply to heavyweight champion Fury.

He said: "Yup the Joyces. Big Joe ! U bottled it with Billy joe Da , what were you doing there ? U Left him, Versace t**t U. Done. Nothing.

"Ya's did it right ye right hahahahaaj. Even when I'm wrong I'm right. Who did it right ? The Mac daddy tonight, in house. Miami d12! Bahamas."

Google translator will hardly fix this but McGregor is pretty much referring to Billy Joe Saunders' dad being attacked by security in Texas last year.

While Fury didn't get involved, he did try to calm things down.

Saunders went on to lose to Canelo Alvarez after retiring on the stool going into round nine.

Saunders surrendered his WBO super middleweight title in the process to the Mexican, who later became undisputed champion with victory over Caleb Plant in November.

Fury responded to McGregor and taunted him about his recent record inside the octagon.

"Come back when u win a fight mush, & the difference in me & you is I don't get myself in trouble & people actually like me, your just a bully who hit old man, & yes Big up the hulk Joe, #morecambebay. in the house."

However, on Monday McGregor backtracked after an old video emerged on social media of Fury saying the Irishman was the face of the UFC. McGregor said: "It's all good, we forget it. Fair play Tyson. God bless ya mate."

Don't expect these two to ever collide inside the ring. Fury weighs around 278lbs while McGregor fights at 170lbs.

McGregor made a series of bizarre tweets on Saturday night, including claims of being 'horny'. There is a good possibility his account may have been hacked but you just never know with McGregor.
