Yes, we really are at that stage where that is a legitimate headline and not a satirical post.
Conor McGregor was a massive hit with the Jimmy Kimmel crowd this week, but he faced a different style of interview when he was stopped on the street by a TMZ reporter and asked a very 'TMZ' question; What would happen if The Notorious Conor McGregor fought Jesus in the Octagon:

What did you expect?
Predictably, the suggestion that the Dubliner would whoop Jesus' ass has not gone down well with some:
Connor McGregor thinks he can beat Jesus Christ. Lost all respect for that dude. Hope Jose Aldo lays him out.

Conor McGregor is a Jesus hating piece of TRASH, anyone that supports this guy is a piece of trash as well pic.twitter.com/0cvrMpuS7j

But from watching the video it's clear that McGregor was only having a bit of fun.
Rather than worry about hypothetical fights with Anthony Pettis, Rafael Dos Anjos, or Jesus Christ, McGregor is surely focusing in on Jose Aldo, a man who he will finally get to throw down with in just 9 days time..
Actually, no, he's already sure what his next fight will be.
