Conor McGregor furious over Anthony Smith questioning his USADA status: ‘I give everything to this game’

Conor McGregor is not happy with UFC light heavyweight Anthony Smith.

The UFC star and former two-division champion blasted Smith on Saturday morning over his comments on his status with USADA – the UFC’s anti-doping program. While still on the UFC roster, McGregor is out of the USADA testing pool, as he recovers from a broken tibia – an injury he sustained in the summer of 2021 in his trilogy bout against Dustin Poirier.

Smith recently expressed that he was bothered to see USADA not test McGregor, all while seeing him get “jacked as sh*t.” Smith listed Chris Weidman and Anderson Silva, who’ve both had similar injuries in the past, as fighters who didn’t get the same treatment as McGregor.

Well, those comments didn’t sit well with the Irishman, as he fired back at Smith and explained why his thinking is off. Below is McGregor’s response.

McGregor with the voice memo

“This one goes out to Anthony Smith. Reports came out from your last bout you broke the leg, and you were sitting there hobbled over. What was the extent of your injury besides on that. It was silence out of your trap, so obviously it was a miss calculation, he didn’t break your leg. So what was it? Was it a stress fracture, what was the issue you had? Because you know what that looks like for me, you hobbling out of there, was what I experienced pre the break, what I went through in the camp and in training.

“I had those stress fractures and they were building over time – even over years of booting people around. It build up over time. So keep kicking, pal, until the leg snaps. Until then, strap your leg up and keep f*cking going. Get back in the cage and keep kicking until the leg f*cking fully snaps, and then you’ll be at my level. And then you’ll go about what you have to go about to. I’m a big, bad machine, what can I say? God decided it.”
