Conor McGregor fires shots at “scurrying rat” Khabib Nurmagomedov

Is this the biggest beef in MMA history?

There is certainly no love lost between bitter rivals Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov, as the first calls the latter a “rat” in a message on social media. 

UFC superstar and former double champion Conor McGregor is slated t return to the UFC against Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in the main event at UFC 246, January 18th. Lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is meanwhile scheduled to defend his title against Tony Ferguson at UFC 248, April 18th. Still though, McGregor and Nurmagomedov continue to collide.


In a post on McGregor’s Instagram story, he posted a clip from his 2018 bout with Nurmagomedov with the words “Little scurrying rat I’m coming”.

As of now, this has not garnered a response from Nurmagomedov.

As the main event at UFC 229, Nurmagomedov vs McGregor broke all previous pay-per-view records and became the most seen UFC fight of all time. The bout was marred by a contentious buildup, with both parties antagonising the other. Nurmagomedov dominated the match, however, forcing McGregor to tap to a neck crank in the fourth round. After the bout Nurmagomedov scaled the cage, attacking McGregor’s corner, and subsequently getting supended.

Do you think we will see Nurmagomedov vs McGregor II?
