Khabib Nurmagomedov Brutally Trolls Conor McGregor For First Time Since His Retirement

Khabib Nurmagomedov has reignited his feud with Conor McGregor on social media after posting an image of their brawl following UFC 229.

Khabib dominated McGregor back in 2018 and while the contest in the cage was thrilling, what happened afterwards took all the headlines.

A mass brawl broke out between both sides and the lightweight champion has posted a GIF on Instagram showing Team Khabib member Zubaira Tukhugov striking McGregor.

Khabib jumped the cage moments after his win and attacked McGregor's coach Dillon Danis, starting the huge melee.

The brawl has one down as one of UFC's most controversial incidents and bad blood still exists to this day.

Both men received suspensions for their conduct, Khabib receiving nine months and McGregor six months respectively.

Conor McGregor Wants 'illegal Move' He Landed On Khabib Nurmagomedov To Be Legalised In MMA

It was no secret that 'The Notorious' wanted a second match with Khabib while the undefeated star showed no interest.

McGregor announced his UFC retirement last weekend to shock the fight world but one man is doubting the Irishman.

"Right now, he's on punishment for his bad behaviour. Right now, he needs to sit down," Khabib's manager Ali Abdelaziz told TMZ.

Conor McGregor’s Latest Theory On His Loss To Khabib Nurmagomedov Has Caused A Stir

published at4 days ago

"Go fight Tony Ferguson, stay busy, stay active. Go fight Jorge Masvidal. Stay active, I want to see activity. Remember, he used to say that to all of us, guess what? Payback is a bitch.

"Same old prostitute, he wants attention," he added.

McGregor retired from the sport after claiming the fight game 'does not excite him anymore'.

"The game just does not excite me, and that's that," the former 'Champ-champ' told Ariel Helwani.

"All this waiting around. There's nothing happening. I'm going through opponent options, and there's nothing really there at the minute. There's nothing that's exciting me.

"They should have just kept the ball rolling. I mean, why are they pushing [Khabib vs Justin Gaethje] back to September?

"You know what's going to happen in September, something else is going to happen in September, and that's not going to happen. I laid out a plan and a method that was the right move, the right methods to go with.

"And they always want to baulk at that and not make it happen or just drag it on. Whatever I say, they want to go against it to show some kind of power. They should have just done the fight - me and Justin for the interim title - and just kept the ball rolling."
