Defending his recent inactivity from the Octagon through injury, Umar Nurmagomedov and his family have once more become the subject of mocking and an attack from former two-division UFC champion, Conor McGregor – who pointed to apparent family-wide steroid use from the Nurmagomedovs.

McGregor, a former undisputed lightweight and featherweight gold holder, has been out of action through injury himself since 2021, fracturing his left tibia and fibula in an opening round doctor’s stoppage TKO loss to Dustin Poirier in the pair’s trilogy rubber match.

And as for Nurmagomedov, the number fourteen ranked bantamweight contender has been sidelined since he took home a devastating first round body kick KO win over Brazilian striker, Raoni Barcelos back in January of last year – earning him a Performance of the Night bonus.
