Conor McGregor slams Khabib Nurmagomedov for being “disrespectful” in a new twist in their rivalry.
Khabib Nurmagomedov has been targeted by Conor McGregor.
In the aftermath of his surprising loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 257, Conor McGregor has slammed fierce rival Khabib Nurmagomedov. The Notorious was knocked out in the second round after being hit with a barrage of leg kicks that put him out cold.
McGregor was unable to dance about the Octagon, and his lead leg was savagely pummeled.
This allowed Poirier to unleash a barrage of punishing blows, knocking McGregor to the ground.
Poirier defeated the fifth ex-UFC champion of his career when the referee stepped in and stopped the fight.
Many MMA fans hoped that by putting on a show against Poirier, McGregor may persuade Khabib to come out of retirement.
However, following the battle, the Russian mocked his Irish opponent on Twitter.
Frank Lampard, Chelsea’s manager, has been sacked.
“This is what happens when you switch teams, leave the sparring partners who helped you become a champion, and spar with small children who are far removed from reality,” Khabib wrote.
McGregor, on the other hand, has retaliated against his opponent, calling for a rematch of their tumultuous 2018 fight.
“Would he like to return or not?” According to McGregor. “Because he’s not throwing any leg kicks,” says the narrator.
“Come back and let’s go again, my man, if he wants to make his insulting remarks. I’ve come to see what’s going on. That’s a fighter’s lingo.”
When Khabib defeated McGregor a little over two years ago, he kept his unbeaten record and lightweight title.
Because of the carnage that occurred in the Octagon on that terrible night, the two have been kept apart ever since.
Members of both camps invaded the Octagon and brawled in unprecedented scenes in UFC history.
Dana White plans to try to set up a rematch between McGregor and Khabib, but he doesn’t believe it will happen.
White admitted, “I did chat to Khabib [after the bout].”
“Be honest with yourself, Dana, I’m so many levels above these folks, I’d beat these guys,” he remarked.
“It doesn’t seem promising, so we’ll see what happens. He won’t stymie the division, as I’ve previously stated. He’s essentially retired…”
