Jon Jones Deletes His Post After Savagely Trolling Khabib Nurmagomedov's Retirement

Jon Jones aimed a ruthless dig at Khabib Nurmagomedov over his retirement in a now deleted post on social media.

UFC president Dana White announced Nurmagomedov's official retirement from MMA last week.

'The Eagle' walks away from the promotion having gone undefeated in his glittering career, beating the likes of Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor.

Fans and critics alike have showered him with praise, but his rivals have taken the chance to slam the superstar fighter.

Tony Ferguson, who actually never fought Nurmagomedov despite being matched up FIVE times, poked fun at him on Twitter with Jones also taking a retirement swipe.

'Bones' posted a damning meme showing Nurmagomedov's UFC championship victories compared to other UFC GOATS including his own incredible record.

He wrote: "Nothing wrong with going out on top, enjoy retirement Champ."

Jones, though, removed the post from Instagram in typical fashion.

Nurmagomedov won four UFC title fights during his career. He beat Al Iaquinta, McGregor, Poirier and Justin Gaethje.

This is not the first time Jones has mocked the former UFC lightweight champion.

He took a shot at the Dagestan phenom following his victory at UFC 254 back in October 2020.

He tweeted: "8 ko/tko across 30 fights = zero power. Don't forget it teddy bear."

Nurmagomedov said that he never complemented returning to the famed Octagon after initially retiring last year.

"No [I never contemplated coming back], but Dana called this official," he said with a laugh.

"But I retired like five, six months ago. It's very funny. Dana told me when he posted this, he said someone write me comment about, 'He retired not today, he retired like five months ago.'

"It's funny a little bit, but we have some conversations with Dana a couple of times. Like two days ago, we meet with him, sit, talk like two real men. We have a very good conversation with him, good dinner."
