But the Dagestan fighter hit back at McGregor's "chicken" claim.

"What happened on Oct. 6, 2018?" he asked. "When we had six months' training camp before the fight, you do everything that you can, and you come inside the cage. You talk lot of bad things before the fight. Six months, you train very hard and you come inside the cage and you tap like chicken.

"OK, a couple days ago, he sent message, 'Hey, people, please take care of your family, be safe, stay home, government says stay home,' - couple days ago.

"Now he talk, 'I'm in good shape, blah blah blah, I'm gonna fight.' This is fake. For me, it's fake. I was always real. Maybe someone like, maybe someone don't like. But this is not my job. But I was always real. But this guy's fake.

"Conor always going to be No. 2, always. He can never can do nothing with me. Inside the cage with me, he's zero."
