It didn’t take long for Conor McGregor to come out of the woodwork to criticize returning bitter rival Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Khabib is the UFC lightweight champion and is set to throwdown with interim champ Justin Gaethje later this year. That is one heck of a first fight back for the Russian after dealing with the loss of his father a very short time ago.
The media has been asking both fighters what their strategies are and Nurmagomedov eerily said he would “take him (Gaethje) to the deepest ocean and drown him“. Enter Conor McGregor.
Despite having been soundly defeated by the Russian back in 2018 that hasn’t stopped the Irishman from being very critical. He humorously “translated“ what Khabib said…
Conor is essentially the N.W.O. of the UFC. He’s one of the only guys who can get beat at a weekend pay-per-view and show up on Monday like he won. I’m not sure he wants to poke the snake that bit him already.
