Khabib Nurmagomedov Responds After Conor McGregor Goes Too Far In Latest Twitter Rant
Khabib Nurmagomedov has fired back at Conor McGregor after 'The Notorious' let rip on all of his rivals.
McGregor had stayed quiet about UFC 249 until Monday evening when he had harsh words for Khabib as well as Justin Gaethje, the winner of Saturday's main event.
Khabib you absolute embarrassment. Scurrying, hiding rat as usual. As I have said many times. As has been seen many times. Through the pane of glass it was confirmed what was always known.- Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) May 11, 2020
"No comment" lol.
An embarrassment to real fighting.
The Irishman then continued his tirade into the night and some tweets may have gone too far.
In the messages which have since been deleted, McGregor called out the lightweight champion for a photo of the Russian in what seems to be a hot tub with friends.
The message read: "Yes, hug legs. Hug legs and bathe in tiny bathtubs with groups of men, while touching their legs."
A follow-up tweet added: "What the f**k is going on here? How can this country condemn/punish homosexuals, yet lock their children and wives away, and engage solely in this type of activity. Male only. It's quite bizarre."
Khabib responded to McGregor's tweets throughout the night, with the first one having an image of him choking McGregor out back at UFC 229.

He then responded to the 'hug legs' jibe by asking if the former 'Champ-champ' was 'typing tweets drunk'.
Khabib stated: "Hug legs? Have you forgot how I knock you down, or you typing tweets drunk? Beat you in striking, parts you up in wrestling, absolutely destroy you in grappling, Made you grab air with your hands, and at the end you gave up. last one, don't forget your words 'it's only business'.

His final reply was a downed McGregor captioned with: "You don't like legs?"
McGregor also deleted an image he'd sent to Gaethje.
'The Highlight' tweeted a promo picture for himself vs Khabib, which McGregor replied to with a firefighter stood in front of the rubble of a building.
Conor McGregor went on a Twitter rant targeting fellow UFC lightweights, but deleted this one.
