The bad blood between Conor McGregor and UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is very much alive, and might never end. Recently, things heated up when UFC president Dana White called Nurmagomedov “the man” of the UFC, noting the moniker no longer belongs to McGregor.
That didn’t sit well with the Irishman, who fired back at those claims on Twitter. This sparked a war of words between the two former Octagon opponents. Here’s what Nurmagomedov had to say via Google Translate.
“This is a fiasco wino”
McGregor decided to respond to Nurmagomedov in Russian, and his words translated into, “See you in Moscow, pu**y.”
Nurmagomedov then decided to rip into McGregor for his recent sexual assault allegation in Ireland – the second within the last year. Here’s what Nurmagomedov had to say.
“In Moscow, rapists are not expected”
Of course, McGregor has not been officially convicted of rape, as reports out of Ireland linking him to sexual assault are purely allegations at this point. McGregor and Nurmagomedov fought at UFC 229 last year in October. “The Eagle” retained his lightweight title with a fourth-round submission via neck crank.
McGregor has been calling for a rematch with Nurmagomedov for quite some time. However, he’ll likely have to earn a victory before getting back into the conversation for a lightweight title opportunity.
