Though they will most likely never meet again in the cage, Conor McGregor just can’t seem to help himself when it comes to taking shots at Khabib Nurmagomedov. The pair met at UFC 229 in 2018, where the Dagestani dominated the Irishman on the ground on route to a neck crank victory. The win was followed by a brawl between both camps that spilled out of the cage and into the T-Mobile Arena.
Since then McGregor has done his best to save face, claiming the fight was closer than it was and conveniently forgetting the outcome. Last night McGregor fired off a rant about the fight, which included some juvenile jabs at the man who bested him three years ago.
McGregor appears to be a follower of the Jon Jones school of tweeting, as evidenced by the ‘Notorious’ one deleting those tweets shortly after they were released. Fortunately for anyone interested in this drama, twitter user @inanewdress1 preserved them for posterity.
