Conor McGregor Sends Message To Khabib Nurmagomedov One Year After Fight
Conor McGregor has aimed a dig at Khabib Nurmagomedov a year on from their explosive meeting at UFC 229 last October.
McGregor has marked the one-year anniversary of his devastating defeat to Nurmagomedov by issuing a message to the UFC lightweight champion.
"Fuck an 8 count let's dance baby #1yearago #moscow #shitinthebus #runningandshittingatthesametime," he wrote on Twitter with a GIF of himself being floored by Nurmagomedov.

Nurmagomedov returned from his post-UFC 229 suspension by defending his UFC lightweight title with a third-round submission victory over Dustin Poirier at UFC 242 last month.
The 31-year-old is expected to face Tony Ferguson in March or April and he has told McGregor to "get in line" ahead of a potential rematch.
"There's a lot of businessmen here and I think most of them will tell me to fight him, because it'll bring money," he said at an event in Russia.

"I have to say that Tony Ferguson deserves it more, you have to give him credit. He is on a 12-fight win streak and he deserves it more than Conor.
"Conor has to come back, stop hitting old people. He is a professional fighter, he should come back, win and earn his place and get in line."
As Nurmagomedov alluded to, Ferguson is on an impressive 12-fight winning streak which includes a victory over Donald Cerrone in June.
Nurmagomedov and Ferguson have been matched up four times over the past four years, yet they've never actually fought.
