“Rapist, you are Rapist,” Nurmagomedov tweeted. “You are a hypocrite who is not responsible for your actions. Justice will find you.”
Conor McGregor made his Tuesday a day of attacking rivals, taking a shot at Khabib Nurmagomedov’s wife.
Taking to Twitter after posting photos of his sparring session with Paulie Malignaggi, McGregor would post a photo of Nurmagomedov and his wife at their wedding. He would write in the post “Your wife is a towel mate,” as Nurmagomedov’s wife covered her face in a veil, which is a custom for those who practice Islam.
MMAJunkie would be the first to post a screenshot of the tweet, which was hastily deleted soon after posting.
Nurmagomedov has kept his wife’s identity private throughout his career, and is very devout in his faith, refusing to fight during the holy month of Ramadan.
The tweet coincides not only with Nurmagomedov comparing McGregor to a “jealous wife” who threatens to leave at a talk in Moscow, and near the one-year anniversary of the UFC 223 media day brawl that saw McGregor throw a handtruck through a bus window.
