Khabib Fires Back After Conor McGregor Slates His UFC 219 Performance

On Monday morning, UFC fans got what they’d been waiting for since the weekend as Conor McGregor responded to Khabib Nurmagomedov’s epic showing at UFC 219. 

On Saturday night, Khabib Nurmagomedov put on one of the most clinical performances ever witnessed in the UFC as the Russian absolutely battered Edson Barboza for the entirety of their three-round contest.

However, despite unanimous praise for Nurmagomedov’s performance, Conor McGregor took to Twitter on Monday morning to slate the 29-year-old’s showing while he also suggested that he would have little trouble KO’ing the Russian.

However, it didn’t take the undefeated Russian very long to respond with Khabib firing out two tweets in quick succession at the ‘Notorious’ Irishman. The 29-year-old first told McGregor to ‘shut up’ whilst calling him a chicken (and what we can only assume was meant to be spelt as ‘Tap Machine’) before also firing a hilarious photoshop job at the reigning lightweight champion.

Update:

McGregor and Khabib have had another exchange since the Russian’s initial response:
