Conor McGregor channeled Homer Simpson for TUF cuts reaction.
Conor McGregor might be a fan of The Simpsons.
Over the last few days reports claim that McGregor cut three fighters from The Ultimate Fighter casting to make room for his own friends. So far, nothing has been confirmed because the show hasn’t even finished filming yet, but that didn’t stop McGregor from taking to Instagram to tease the rumors.
The post is an image of himself and his coach John Kavanaugh looking through a binder, seemingly with information about each of the fighters. Along with the photo was a quote, which eagle-eyed fans recognized from an episode of The Simpsons.
“Good practice, team!” he wrote. “Ok it’s time for the easiest part of any coach’s job.. the cuts. Now, while I wasn’t able to cut everyone I wanted to, I have cut a lot of you. Wendell is cut. Rudy is cut. Janey, you’re gone. Stephen, I like your hustle. That’s why it was so hard to cut you. Congratulations! The rest of you made the team! Except you, you and you.”
In case you haven’t seen it, here’s what he’s pulled the quote from.
The quote followed a tweet where he responded to UFC fighter Chris Curtis. That tweet has since been deleted.
“@Actionman513 not true. I only know 1 guy on this show and he put himself forward for it. And he is now, after today, set to fight the No. 1 seed! I didn’t ask nor request nothing! And I certainly didn’t have people removed. I’m just tryna get back in the mix myself so f*ck off.”
TUF has just begun filming and will air on ESPN.
