UFC Investigating Twitter Threat Towards Conor McGregor After He Called Diaz A ‘Cholo Gangster’

On Wednesday, during UFC 196 press conference Conor McGregor made some possibly racist comments towards Nate Diaz, calling him a Cholo from the hood.

“I honestly like Nick’s little brother,” McGregor said. “How can you not like him? He’s like a little cholo from the hood. But at the same time, he coaches kid’s jiu jitsu on a Sunday morning and goes on bike rides with the elderly. He makes gang signs with the right hand and balloon animals with the left hand.”

One Twitter gangster took to social media to make a threat of violence towards McGregor after his comments.
