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'd fight all the main contenders first and I could fight him to benefit my agriculture projects.

"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.
