Conor McGregor

Khabib Nurmagomedov hits back at Conor McGregor in fresh war of words

In October Nurmagomedov, defeated McGregor via neck crank in the fourth round as he handed the Irishman his second loss in the octagon.

The rivalry has been brewing since last summer when Malignaggi became McGregor’s sparring partner before the Irishman cashed in on a money-grab boxing cameo against Floyd Mayweather.

Things turned sour when the UFC star leaked pictures and footage of the spars with a disputed knockdown of Malignaggi, prompting the Brooklyn boxer to leave Team McGregor’s camp.

Recently rumours circled that negotiations for the pair to meet in the boxing ring was underway — though Malignaggi later denied the suggestion.

In a recent Instagram video, where McGregor, can be seen confronting Malignaggi last year, the former two-weight UFC champion took aim at The Magic Man and Khabib Nurmagomedov, 30.

Nurmagomedov responded to the accusation as he posted a reply on Instagram accompanied with a picture of McGregor being submitted at UFC 229.
