So like most people when they retire, after year’s of working towards something and finally achieving it, they suddenly get bored. Well it looks like McGregor’s got a new DIY project on the go, a bitter rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov. This time it’s over Twitter.
After the recent Lobov Malignaggi spat, which resulted in McGregor coming to the aid of his teammate by tweeting numerous pictures of McGregor landing punches on Paulie Malignaggi. It seems the Notorious one wanted a piece of some action for himself.
It all started with a Tweet aimed at Nurmagomedov saying “You got your money took and your brothers eye socket shook when you fought me you little rat. Viva Las Vegas baby the gaf always wins. Big stomper party in the Wynn coming soon!”

But that only poked the Eagle into a response with his reply “@TheNotoriousMMA money comes and goes, the honor that you lost that evening will never return, live with it. Finish career in mma, but start career on twitter?”

A few days later Mcgregor decided to reply to Nurmagomedov with the following and this is when things really start to take a turn for the worst, where he decided to directly attack his religion. In a tweet, which he subsequently deleted McGregor states “Your wife is a towel mate.”
However, this attack only provoked The Eagle even more. In an even more personal attack, Khabib gets right to the point, referencing McGregor’s current investigation about his sexual assault allegations.

That final spat has lead to UFC president Dana White getting involved, releasing a statement saying “I am aware of the recent social media exchange between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor. The ongoing situation has escalated to a level that is not acceptable. 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.”
McGregor replied with the following comment.
