Khabib Nurmagomedov absolutely ruins Conor McGregor with ‘rapist’ tweet complete with incriminating picture
Conor McGregor has always been the king of drumming up business in the fighting world, but his rivalry with Khabib Nurmagomedov seems to have reached a new level.
After being accused of racism in a series of tweets – most of which he deleted – and even insulting Nurmagomeodv’s wife, McGregor now says he wants to move on and said: “I want to move forward, with my fans of all faiths and all backgrounds.
“All faiths challenge us to be our best selves. It is one world and one for all. Now see you in the Octagon.”
Both men were suspended and fined when a post-fight brawl marred their UFC 229 contest in October. The Russian Nurmagomedov was victorious on that night tapping out McGregor after dominating much of the fight.
Nurmagomedov, a practising Muslim, has taken great offence to McGregor’s slurs before. This time, he responded with an accusatory tweet of his own and Twitter went absolutely crazy for it.
Not sure how McGregor could possibly come back from that – the picture is included, too!
McGregor had earlier called the UFC lightweight champion “a little scurrying rat”, and tried to incite round two between the pair of 30-year-olds by saying: “Don’t be scared of the rematch.”
UFC president Dana White says he is “aware” of the social media exchange.
“The ongoing situation has escalated to a level that is unacceptable,” added White.
“As such, we are taking the necessary steps to reach out to both athlete camps and this situation is being addressed by all parties internally.”
