Conor McGregor And Khabib Nurmagomedov Rivalry Escalates In Last 24 Hours After Incredible Twitter War
Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov have reignited their fierce rivalry on social media by sending out savage digs to one another.
McGregor, 31, initially sparked their heated rivalry by sending out a tweet that mocked his fierce rival over his street fight claims.
But Khabib wasted no time in responding as he shared an image of him pinning the Irish UFC superstar up against the cage in their memorable 2018 blockbuster clash.
McGregor doubled down on his initial tweet by dropping an image of when Khabib controversially scaled the octagon cage and attacked his cornerman, Dillon Danis, at UFC 229.
The 'Notorious' captioned the tweet: "STrEeT fiGhT."
Khabib, who defends his UFC lightweight championship against Tony Ferguson next month, delivered a brutal blow to McGregor after his continued street fight tweets.
The 'Eagle' tweeted out the controversial clip of McGregor punching an elderly man in a Dublin pub and captioned it: "show it to your son and say how good you are on the street fight."
McGregor has had the last say in their heated social media spat -- for now at least -- by saying that he 'saves his hugs for post-fights.'
The Irishman tweeted out a cartoon that depicts his humble attitude towards Donald Cerrone after his comeback fight at UFC 246 in January.
Khabib will return to action against Ferguson on 18th April for their highly-anticipated clash at UFC 249.
But the undefeated Russian star has also sent Dana White a message over the UFC president's desire to book a rematch with McGregor.
