Conor McGregor uses Road House interview to aim savage dig at Khabib Nurmagomedov

Conor McGregor uses Road House interview to aim savage dig at Khabib Nurmagomedov

McGregor has taken a swipe at his old foe.

Conor McGregor has used a Road House interview to aim a savage dig at Khabib Nurmagomedov.

UFC star McGregor has not entered the cafe since breaking his leg in 2021, and though he is working towards a return, he has turned his hand to acting.

The 35-year-old Irishman makes his acting debut in Road House, appearing alongside Hollywood star Jake Gyllenhaal.

UFC is clearly never far from McGregor's mind though, as he showed during a promotional interview for the movie.

While playing a game of 'This or That' with UNILAD, McGregor took an unprovoked swipe at long-time rival Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The former double UFC champion and Road House co-star Gyllenhaal were asked whether they'd rather fight a bear or a gorilla.

McGregor spotted an opportunity to take a dig at his old foe, replying: "I'll go this [bear.] Fighting a bear is handy. I fought one that trained with bears back in the day.

"He's only a little fool. He went running."

McGregor's dig was a reference to Khabib wrestling bears as a child, something the Russian shared videos of online.

The beef between McGregor and Khabib goes back to their infamous showdown at UFC 229 in 2018, the highest-selling event in the company's history.

The pair exchanged plenty of verbal barbs in the build-up to the fight, and a post-fight brawl broke out after the Russian star beat McGregor in the lightweight title fight with a neck crank in the fourth round.

Thanks to Khabib's retirement in 2020, McGregor has never had a chance to exact revenge, though he has called for a rematch on several occasions.

McGregor is set to make his UFC comeback this summer, after he revealed he received a call about facing lightweight contender Michael Chandler.

Chandler claimed he has also spoken with UFC, although an exact date is yet to be fixed.
