LIGHTWEIGHT rivals Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor have been ramping up the trash talk lately. That trend is not about to stop soon.
One will think that the irish fighter will slow it down after quitting the MMA, but reverse was the case on Wednesday morning, McGregor took to Twitter where he reacted to the news that UFC heavyweight Ruslan Magomedov, a training partner and countryman of Nurmagomedov, has been hit with a lifetime ban by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).
McGregor also reminded the world that Zubaira Tukhugov, another Nurmagomedov training partner, has also been hit with a USADA suspension in the past.
Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov fought in November of 2018, in the main event of the record-shattering UFC 229 pay-per-view. Nurmagomedov won this fight by fourth-round submission, retaining his lightweight title in the process.
Since then, the two rivals have ceaselessly swapped trash talk on social media and in interviews. Their mutual animosity has spiked to new heights over the last week, most notably when McGregor made a particularly virulent comment targeting Nurmagomedov’s wife.
