Conor McGregor’s Tweet Shows Khabib Nurmagomedov Is Living Rent-Free In His Head

Conor McGregor has fully lost his head as he once again tried to reignite his fierce rivalry with Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The Irish MMA superstar, 31, tweeted a photo from his clash against Khabib, 30, at UFC 229 last year and tried to mock his rival in a foul-mouthed rant.

"Herb my man he's tryna sniff my jock strap here it's f*****g round 1. Stand this s**t up. P***y fighter. Panic panic [sic]," he tweeted.

"We all saw you panic s**t yourself on the back of that bus. Riddled in panic. I might actually be the Riddler instead."

But UFC fans have found McGregor's tweet to be nothing short of cringeworthy and have flooded social media with their responses.

Khabib secured a stunning fourth-round victory against McGregor after locking in a submission hold and successfully retained his UFC lightweight championship.

But the Russian UFC star descended his victory celebrations into chaos as he scaled the cage and launched an attack on McGregor's cornerman, Dillon Danis.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission handed down a nine-month suspension to the lightweight champ, who will now return to the octagon on 7th September at UFC 242 to compete against Dustin Poirier.

McGregor, who was slapped with a six-month suspension for his part in the aftermath of UFC 229, has been on hiatus from UFC since his defeat.

But a teammate of the Irishman, Peter Queally, has hinted that McGregor could return to the UFC in 2019.
