Former two division UFC champion Conor McGregor will make his highly anticipated octagon return on October 6 when he challenges Khabib Nurmagomedov for the promotions lightweight championship in the main event of UFC 229.
The Irish star, McGregor, has not stepped foot inside the cage since defeating Eddie Alvarez via second-round TKO at UFC 205 in November of 2016.
Despite being absent from the cage for nearly two years, Conor McGregor has still managed to keep his name in the headlines.
“Mystic Mac” sent shockwaves throughout the mixed martial arts world when he and his entourage attacked a UFC fighter bus at The Barclays Center the same weekend of April’s UFC 223 pay-per-view event.
Conor McGregor has made it clear that Khabib Nurmagomedov was his target during the now infamous bus attack in Brooklyn.
Yesterday, the former “champ champ” decided to take a shot at not only “The Eagle” but also Khabib’s father on social media.
“[Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov] I can see you,” Conor McGregor said in his post, which included a screen shot from his infamous rampage in Brooklyn. “Cowering behind fake respect. Just like your middle child. A quivering coward.”
The brash Irish superstar, “Mystic Mac”, decided to add more fuel to the fire this morning on Instagram when he took aim at Khabib Nurmagomedov’s teammate Zubaira Tukhugov.
Conor McGregor accused the 27-year-old, Tukhugov, of treason claiming that a true Chechen would never take orders from a Dagestani man.
Check it out:
“A true Chechen would never assist in a Dagestani led attack on another Chechen. A true Chechen would never take orders from a Dagestani man. This is treason. There is no worse than treason.” – Conor McGregor
