CONOR MCGREGOR has escalated his war of words with Tony Ferguson by telling his UFC rival: "Shut up and thank the nurses and doctors that plated back up your skull."

The Notorious had sparked a verbal sparring session with the American after branding his defeat against Justin Gaethje as "embarrassing."

El Cucuy was taken to hospital with a broken eye socket following his defeat in the interim lightweight championship fight

Ferguson, who was outclassed in the five-round main event at UFC 249, was left hospitalised with a broken eye socket after losing his 12-fight winning streak. 

The Florida State Boxing Commission, which oversaw the event, has now suspended El Cucuy for a minimum of 60 days.

And McGregor lit a fuse by claiming afterwards that Ferguson was never quite as good as he was thought to be when the pair shared the same management.

The 36-year-old furiously responded to the Irishman on Twitter by writing: "You're Still My B****. You Never Represented Me According To Audie,..

"If So Then You Worked For Me, & Withheld Money From Me. Focus On Putting The Bottle Down Kid. @BallengeeGroup Is Gold Standard, Must Be Hard Watching From The Sidelines.

"Keep It Up Chump -Champ."

But McGregor soon hit back to mock Ferguson for not learning how to box after Gaethje landed 143 significant strikes, 100 of those to the head, in the interim lightweight title clash.

He tweeted: "Shut up and thank the nurses and doctors that plated back up your skull and stitched all those gashes up. It's international nurses day! And learn how to box!

"Fumbling over your feet like a f*****g Buffoon. We'd be embarrassed to represent that at Paradigm Sports. GPizzle."

Ferguson's shock loss means McGregor has turned his attentions towards Gaethje and fierce Russian rival Khabib Nurmagomedov.

And it appears the Highlight is up for the challenge but is adamant he wants to fight undefeated lightweight champ Khabib first.

UFC President Dana White has also revealed McGregor is looking for his next target but dubbed talks of a trilogy fight with Nate Diaz as "s***-talking".
