On Friday night, former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor took to Instagram to share his thoughts on one of his chief rivals from the boxing world, Paulie Malignaggi. After a few sentences, McGregor’s post evolved into an attack on Khabib Nurmagomedov, who he lost to in the main event of UFC 229 in October.
“Let the record show. I like Paulie Malinaggi. Here is a confrontation between us regarding a picture he was upset about. Yes you heard that right. A picture. I told him here, to his face ‘Don’t be bitching.’ Common knowledge I would think for a fighting man. Don’t be a bitch, bitching. The same thing I said to Khabib at the end of round 3. My round. Don’t be bitching!Every single round bitching to the referee.He was even bitching in the fourth round from mount position. It baffled me. If anyone should have been saying anything to the referee, it should have been me in that 1st round. That round he held onto my legs for four minutes straight. With zero activity. But a fight is a fight who gives a fuck. Crying to the referee like a proper bitch. I was trying to dig my fingers into his Adams Apple. Many individuals in the fight business, I have learned lately, are absolute bitches.
I know you’s are broke boys. But don’t be broke bitches.” – Conor McGregor on Instagram
It did not take long for Khabib Nurmagomedov to respond to this dig from Conor McGregor.
In an Instagram post of his own, he simply reminded the Irishman that he beat him when they fought.
“You will live with this shame all your life”- Khabib Nurmagomedov on Instagram.
Needless to say, the beef between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor is still alive and well. Do you think we’ll see them fight again this year?
