Khabib Destroys Conor McGregor as Online Feud Reignites

Khabib and Conor McGregor are back at it again… Check out their latest online feud below…

Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagamedov really don’t like each other. Usually, MMA fighters put their feud behind them after the fight. Jeremy Stephens v Yair Rodriguez is a prime example. ‘Lil’ Heathen’ literally said it would be a failure if he didn’t kill Rodriguez. That didn’t stop the two men embracing after three rounds.

However, McGregor and Nurmagamedov’s hatred of the other is mutual. Not only have they brawled in public, but the UFC had to intervene after their online war of words went too far. Khabib called McGregor a rapist, while the Irishman referred to his foe’s wife as a ‘goat under a towel.’

Now they’re back at it again. Check out their latest online back-and-forth below. UFC executives will surely be shaking their heads because this is in danger of boiling over again.

Marquee Event

To be honest, this is all Dana White’s fault. He said that Conor McGregor is ‘no longer the man.’ Khabib is now the UFC’s main draw and has the power to decide what fights he wants. This really did not please ‘The Notorious,’ who went on a furious rant on Twitter. He did not hold back, tweeting:

“Who’s not the man? Your man had that marquee event did he? More like an event in a marquee. A tent in the f**king sand it was. Keep spoofing to your self horse. Jock strap sniffer championships.”

Of course, McGregor is referring to UFC Abu Dhabi, where Khabib defeated Dustin Poirier. The Russian fighter is massive in the Arab world and is one of the biggest Muslim sport stars on the planet. Typically, he responded to McGregor by going in hard.


No Rematch

Of course, Nurmagamedov decided that the best way to respond was to call McGregor an alcoholic and a rapist. This is a reference to reports that the Irishman is under investigation for two alleged counts of sexual assault. McGregor’s legal representatives have denied that the Irishman has committed any wrongdoing. However, the Irish police are still investigating.

McGregor tweeted that he would see Khabib in Moscow. So, Khabib responded by saying that ‘Moscow does not welcome rapists.’ Ouch. That’s definitely got to sting. Then McGregor responded by posting a picture of himself at the Russian consulate in Dublin. Is something big going to happen here?

Red Panty Night

Dana White had more bad news for McGregor. In short, he wanted to fight Frankie Edgar, but the UFC President shut that down. In short, White wants Edgar to fight at bantamweight. Although McGregor is expected to fight again in 2020, it’s not going to be against ‘The Answer.’

“Edgar is two weight classes below him. He was supposed to fight Aljamain Sterling. Aljamain fell out and got hurt. Frankie is coming to the end of his career, and he could end up getting himself into a title position again. To take the Conor fight makes no sense.”

But Frankie Edgar’s bank balance might think differently. While the UFC does not need McGregor as much as they used to, he’s still a draw and a big earner for his opponents. To sum up, Edgar would probably not say no to a red panty night if it was available.
