• Conor McGregor Makes A Disrespectful Comment About Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Father’s Death
It looks like former UFC Two-Division Champion Conor McGregor will do anything to keep having blockbuster fights in UFC and keep breaking records for pay-per-view buys.
UFC 229 (featuring Conor McGregor vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov) is the most bought pay-per-view ever in UFC history, with 2.4 million buys. Conor lost this fight via submission.
Conor has noted in the past that he wants a rematch and he’s now in “full heel mode” (as they say in pro-wrestling) to bring Khabib out of retirement.
After Conor lost his trilogy fight against Dustin Poirier earlier this month at UFC 264, Khabib tweeted the following:
“Good always defeats evil. Very happy for @DustinPoirier I hope you will get the belt end of the year.”
Conor tweeted the following tonight in response to the above tweet:
“Covid is good and father is evil?”
Conor later deleted his tweet.
For those who don’t know, Khabib’s father died last year due to COVID-19. At that time, Conor tweeted the following:
“The loss of a father, a coach, and a dedicated supporter of the sport. Condolences and rest in peace Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov.”
