Khabib Fires Back: “You Will Live With This Shame All Of Your Life”

Khabib Nurmagomedov has fired back at Conor McGregor after he posted a lengthy rant, complaning about his mid-fight actions in the UFC 229 main-event.

Even a few months on, the rivalry and feud between Conor and his Russian counterpart doesn’t seem to be slowing down.

As of right now, it is unclear when each man will fight again but both have not stopped poking at each other in both the media and online – leading many to suspect that we will see them in there together again before long.

McGregor found himself in the headlines earlier for taking a dual-stab at his rivals Paulie Malignaggi and Khabib Nurmagomedov – accusing the latter of ‘b**ching’ to the referee during their UFC 229 lightweight title tilt.

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.

Khabib was never going to take that one sitting down and shortly after, responded to the Irishman with a gentle reminder of what transpired inside the octagon at UFC 229.
