Khabib Nurmagomedov Reacts To Rival Conor McGregor's UFC 257 Loss To Dustin Poirier

Khabib Nurmagomedov Reacts To Rival Conor McGregor's UFC 257 Loss To Dustin Poirier

Khabib Nurmagomedov did not waste any time in reacting to Conor McGregor's shock UFC 257 loss to Dustin Poirier.

371 days on from his most recent bout, McGregor was knocked out for the first time in his MMA career and suffered a third loss inside the Octagon at the hands of Poirier.

'The Diamond' put the dual-weight champion away in the second round after a stunning performance in UFC's first pay-per-view of the year at the Etihad Arena, Abu Dhabi.

And lightweight champion Khabib took to Twitter to taung his long-time rival and the man he submitted at UFC 229 in October 2018.

The Dagestani fighter had actually fancied 'The Notorious' in his prediction prior to the fight but afterwards said McGregor's loss was down to him changing sparring partners and "sparring with little kids".

Speaking in a post-fight interview, a gutted McGregor gave credit to opponent Poirier for levelling matters in their series and believed his inactivity was costly.

In fact, the latest update from UFC president Dana White is that it is not looking as though the 29-0 fighter will come out of retirement.

He had promised his mother to stay retired following the tragic passing of his father and training. White has been doing his best to persuade him to fight once more but 'The Eagle' doesn't see the point and believes he is "levels above these guys".

White did add that Michael Chandler and Poirier, the two men victorious in the two big bouts in the lightweight division at UFC 257, could meet for the lightweight title if Khabib's stance does not change.
