The lightweight champion and McGregor have had bad blood for years and while Khabib came out on top in the octagon in 2018, the 'Notorious' dominates financially.

Khabib still manages to top Forbes' list of richest Russians below 40 meaning he is still incredibly well off.
McGregor established himself as one of UFC's biggest box-office draws during his career and his comeback fight against Donald Cerrone in January earned him £25 million.
His partnership with Reebok also netted him an additional £4 million while various business ventures such as Proper No. Twelve whiskey have kept the money rolling in.
Despite McGregor's retirement, he reignited the duo's feud yesterday with claims about Khabib's father.
Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov was hospitalised in May after suffered a stroke caused by coronavirus complications, with the 57-year-old still in a serious condition.
Despite this, nephew Abubakar posted a since-deleted image of McGregor being choked out by Khabib at UFC 229 with the caption 'This is when the coronavirus and you can't breathe.'
It didn't take long for the former 'Champ-champ' to see the post and he unloaded in the comments section.
McGregor claims Khabib's fathers condition is just a cover up for the Nurmagomedovs not fighting and pulling out :flushed: pic.twitter.com/XapkFJwcRi

Per RT.com, the Irishman said: "I figured it was all just a cover up about Abdulmanap.
"A cover up to hide the lack of activity and the pulling out of fights and running away. Good luck but remember - Allah sees all!"
McGregor had previously offered his support to the Nurmagomedov family after the news of Abdulmanap's condition broke.
Praying for the recovery of Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov. A man responsible for more World champions, across multiple fighting disciplines, than we even know.- Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) May 13, 2020
A true martial genius!
Very saddened upon hearing this news tonight.
Praying for the Nurmagomedov family at this time :pray: https://t.co/OVklQphPgN
Khabib's manager Ali Abdelaziz had his say on McGregor's comment and called him "the lowest scum on this earth" in a now deleted tweet.
