The Irishman has launched McGregor Fast MMA gloves which he has been promoting online.
And he was in a conversation with a fan on Twitter when Gaethje, 32, decided to weigh in.
Speaking about the gloves, McGregor’s divisional rival tweeted: “You didn’t design this, you just put your name on someone else’s designs, made for as cheap as possible with s*** foam and s*** materials.
“They are garbage and you know it. Make your cheese though.”
And in typical McGregor fashion, the 32-year-old hit back: “I’d smoke you and your coach at the same time in these patented @McGregorFast gloves.”
The tweet received more than 12,500 likes and 375 comments.
Notorious will be back in action on July 10 in the main event of UFC 264 in Las Vegas, where he’ll have a trilogy fight with former interim 155lb champ Dustin Poirier.
And his latest outburst comes after he called Nate Diaz a ‘juice head turkey’ steroid user.

The Irishman was on the warpath on Sunday as he also hit out at UFC executive Jeff Novitzky saying his silence on the issue ‘makes perfect sense’.
McGregor was pictured beasting himself in the gym over the weekend ahead of his trilogy fight with Poirier and claimed the US Anti-Doping Agency tested him just before the workout.
And soon after he took aim at Novitzky and tweeted: “Jeff Novitzky how come the public isn’t told about positive tests anymore?
“How after the Nate Diaz steroid debacle, where he produced his own nutrition companies tainted multivitamin, was instantly cleared prior to a mega money fight, are we now in the dark on test results?”
Diaz wasted no time in replying and – alongisde a picture of the Irishman lying on his back on the canvas – wrote: “McGregor fast system. This is what steroids do to you.”
And his comments clearly touched a nerve with Notorious who blasted back: “Silly goose, that was pre @McGregorFast.
“McGregor FAST was created in the aftermath of that fight. Here is an image of a direct result of me following the @McGregorFast program.
“Your face left like a bowl of leftover salsa. Now Download the app you little juice head turkey.”
