Nurmagomedov pulled no punches when assessing McGregor's social media post regarding his late father.
The Irishman shared a sickening tweet aimed at Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, who sadly passed away last year, before removing the post from social media: "Covid is good and father is evil?"
The former UFC lightweight champion hit back by claiming that only an 'evil' person could target someone's father, wife, kids or religion.
Well, McGregor has continued his war of words by firing back in a disturbing tirade - which has since been deleted.
He wrote: "I wanna eat his children!!!
If this is some sort of attempt to lure Nurmagomedov out of retirement, then McGregor is fighting an uphill battle.
'The Eagle' confirmed his stance, insisting he is NOT returning to the Octagon.
McGregor, of course, is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines after undergoing surgery on his broken leg suffered in his defeat to Dustin Poirier last month.
