Conor, Khabib Rekindle Social Media War in Russian
The bad blood between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov will never go away. Translated into Russian: Плохая кровь между Конором МакГрегором и Хабибом Нурмагомедовым никогда не исчезнет.
On the same day where reports surfaced on allegations of a possible second sexual assault charge against him, McGregor took to social media to take fire at UFC President Dana White and his archnemesis.
In an interview with the Boston Globe last week, White claimed Nurmagomedov has overtaken McGregor as “the man” in the UFC.
Nurmagomedov then responded to the Irish superstar on Twitter, sparking a brief, but nasty, social media exchange — all conducted in Russian.
Увидимся в Москве, киска
— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) October 19, 2019
В Москве насильников не ждут
— khabib nurmagomedov (@TeamKhabib) October 19, 2019
Roughly translated, the conversation goes as followed:
Khabib: This is a drunk fiasco
Conor: See you in Moscow, [expletive]
Khabib: In Moscow, rapists are not expected
McGregor has been looking at a return to the Octagon, and he has previously said he wants to rematch with Nurmagmoedov in Moscow.
Nurmagomedov, meanwhile, took aim to the fact McGregor is being investigated for sexual assault a second time this year.
This is not the first time McGregor and Nurmagomedov have had a Twitter war either. McGregor posted a photo of Nurmagomedov and his wife from their wedding, commenting “your wife is a towel.” She was wearing a white veil covering her entire face, following with Nurmagomedov’s religion of Islam. Nurmagomedov, meanwhile, again called McGregor a rapist and posted a photo of McGregor with a woman he’s alleged to have had an illegitimate child with. The situation was so negatively received that the UFC was forced to step in to stop it.
