CONOR McGREGOR has been threatened by UFC middleweight Marvin Vettori after his criticism of Beneil Dariush.
McGregor mocked Dariush online and called the lightweight "the biggest nobody in the company".
The harsh comments did not go down well with 28-year-old Vettori – who trains with Dariush at Kings MMA.
He responded: "What a bitch @TheNotoriousMMA. You couldn’t last 2 min with Beneil and that’s just a fact.
"You are scumbag, I hope to see you soon."
Dariush, 33, recently hit out at UFC lightweight champion Charles Oliveira, 32, for chasing a mega-fight with McGregor, 33.

He told MMA Fighting: “He’s talking about wanting to fight Conor McGregor, and he talks about how these guys never gave him a shot when he was outside the top five, blah, blah, blah.
"We were supposed to fight October of 2020. I have a fight contract, I can post a picture of it.
"I was supposed to fight Charles, and he pulled out of the fight, and then a couple months later, instead of fighting me, he fought Tony Ferguson.
"He said something about family issues and I’m not going to say, ‘Oh, he didn’t fight me, I can’t believe it.’

"Family comes first, I understand that. But the same thing people did to him, he’s doing to me.
“I understand the media has their thing, the UFC has their part, but for him to be chasing a unicorn, it’s super frustrating.
"There’s two clear contenders in front of you, and you’re trying to chase a unicorn. No one knows when Conor is going to fight again.
"The guy might not even fight this year. Make it make sense. It just doesn’t make sense.”
