The ongoing feud between UFC lightweight standouts Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov continued today on social media.

It all started after McGregor took to Twitter to respond to Dana White’s recent claim the he was “no longer the man”, and that Khabib Nurmagomedov now “calls the shots.”

“Who’s not the man? Your man had that marquee event did he? More like an event in a marquee.” Conor McGregor wrote. “A tent in the fucking sand it was. Keep spoofing to your self horse. Jock strap sniffer championships.”

The UFC’s undefeated lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov, responded to his Irish rival’s outburst with the following message.

Conor McGregor quickly responded to “The Eagle” with his own message in Russian.

“See you in Moscow, pussy.”

McGregor has not competed since suffering a fourth round submission loss to the aforementioned Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 last October.

The Irishman has been clamoring for a rematch ever since, but Dana White and UFC officials have made it clear that Tony Ferguson is next up for “The Eagle”.

Khabib Nurmagomedov is coming off a submission victory over Dustin Poirier At September’s UFC 242 event in Abu Dhabi.

The win improved the Russians record to a perfect 28-0 in MMA.
