Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov

Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov kicked off the New Year by trading barbs on Twitter.

The heated exchange came shortly after Khabib Nurmagomedov’s impressive victory over Edson Barboza in the co-main event of UFC 219 on Saturday night.

While most fellow fighters labelled Khabib’s UFC 219 performance as phenomenal, “Mystic Mac” was not impressed by “The Eagle’s” win over Barboza.

“That Dagestani was dog shit the other night you's are all nuts. Game full of sloppy bums asking to be slept. Pay me my worth and Kings back.” – Conor McGregor

The undefeated lightweight contender quickly responded to Conor’s tweet with the following.

“Shut up #tapMashine #chicken” – Khabib Nurmagomedov

Conor McGregor fired back at “The Eagle” by requesting him to beg for the opportunity to fight him.

“Truly truly truly get on your fucking knees and beg me. Otherwise I don’t give a bollox. My whiskey is out this year and thats Diddy bread.” – Conor McGregor

Not to be outdone, Nurmagomedov replied to McGregor with the following photo.

The trash talk didn’t stop there as the brash Irishman continued to taunt Khabib.

“And that’s Diddy bread on top of already Diddy bread.” – Conor McGregor

“Now get your Diddy’s out and beg.” – Conor McGregor
