Khabib Trolls Conor McGregor With Pictures Of Him Getting Choked Out At Different Weight Classes
Khabib Nurmagomedov has randomly posted three pictures of Conor McGregor in chokeholds as he prepares for his fight against Tony Ferguson at UFC 246.
The Russian fighter, who defeated McGregor in October 2018 to retain his lightweight crown at UFC 229, has reminded the Irish fighter of the loss on his official Twitter.
In one of the images, Khabib is locking in a reverse choke during their 155 pound clash in April last year.
While another captures the moment Nate Diaz won by a rear-naked choke during their welterweight clash at UFC 198.
The final picture is a shot from McGregor's last defeat before signing for the UFC, when he lost via a 38-second submission to fellow countryman Joseph Duffy.
He succumbed to his opponent's superior grappling skill set and tapped out in just 38 seconds.
McGregor began the fight in confident manner, throwing punches until Duffy shot for a takedown.
He then secured a single-leg takedown before transitioning to full mount, where he sunk in an arm-triangle choke, forcing McGregor to tap.
Khabib's latest message on social media comes just a day after he fired a stern warning to Conor McGregor.
The 31-year-old has been told by UFC president Dana White that he'll face McGregor next if he beats Ferguson.
And he's issued a message to the lightweight roster.
"King has never left, he's not going anywhere," he wrote on social media, accompanied with a video of himself dripping in sweat in a gym.
The UFC champion's father Abdulmanap has laid out what it'll take to get Nurmagomedov vs. McGregor 2 and it's a lot of money.
"We also need revenge against Conor, but give us $100 million," he explained.
"The day after the fight against Ferguson, give us that amount and then why not hold a rematch? I don't know, maybe Dana White wants to arrange it (for that amount), he needs that fight."
Nurmagomedov last fought in September 2019 when he beat Dustin Poirier to defend his UFC lightweight title. He's 28-0, which includes 12 victories inside the famed Octagon.
