FUMING Conor McGregor has threatened to “kill” and “starve” fellow UFC star Tom Aspinall in a series of now deleted tweets.
The Notorious, who touched down in Las Vegas this week to begin filming the latest season of the long-running reality TV show The Ultimate Fighter, has just been described by Mike Tyson as a ‘beautiful guy’.
However, the 34-year-old has shown his vicious streak again as he delivered a barbed online attack on British UFC heavyweight Aspinall, 29.
Aspinall, who has become a brand ambassador for fitness apparel company Gym King, recently said that McGregor's return to the octagon was nothing to be excited about and that he has much more interest in other upcoming fights such as Jon Jones taking on Ciryl Gane.
And that led to a fierce response from McGregor, who vowed to jeopardise the Gym King deal and starve Aspinall to death.
In the now deleted tweets, the Irishman wrote: “Bum p***k. Say sayonara to that gk deal kid. Starve you and kill you I will you f***ing disrespectful p***k.

“Don't ever speak my name in disrespect again. Mush potato head.”
He followed that up with another tweet that read: “@AspinallMMA mush head rat keep your comments to yourself.”
Meanwhile, McGregor has been joined by rival coach Michael Chandler in Vegas, before the pair then throw down later this year as Notorious gets set to return to the octagon.
Former two-division champion McGregor hasn't set foot inside the octagon since breaking his left leg in his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier in July 2021.

A date for the fight has not been set as McGregor has yet to re-enter the United States Anti-Doping Agency's drug testing pool – which he must be in for at least six months before competing.
At this moment in time, September is the earliest the showdown will take place.
