Over the weekend, in the co-main event of UFC 219, Dagestan’s Khabib Nurmagomedov improved to an insane 25-0 overall, bludgeoning Brazilian knockout artist Edson Barboza to a lopsided unanimous decision win. Pretty much everybody was impressed by Nurmagomedov’s insane win – but do not file UFC undisputed lightweight champion Conor McGregor into that group.

On Monday afternoon, the Irish superstar took to Twitter with a brief reaction to Nurmagomedov’s win, referring to it as “dog shit.”

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

This then prompted Nurmagomedov to fire back.

“Shut up #TapMachine” Nurmagomedov said.

While McGregor’s future is currently veiled in mystery, he also eluded to a possible comeback on Twitter, suggesting that he’d come back if he was begged, but that he is content to bask in his riches if not.

Do you think we’ll ever see Conor McGregor back in the Octagon? How do you think he matches up with Khabib Nurmagomedov?
