After two weeks, McGregor seemingly tweeted his response to Nurmagomedov, going right after his late father Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, who unfortunately passed away final 12 months immediately after troubles resulting from the contraction of COVID-19.

It didn’t seem to get the job done against Poirier. I come to feel like from him chatting about Dustin’s wife to now Khabib’s father, he is just taking it way also significantly.
“When you are working with death and COVID and all these other matters that we’ve dealt with over the final 12 months and a half, that is all off limitations. We talked about wives and family members currently being off limitations, but when you’re talking about a man’s everything—Khabib’s father was his all the things — and you’re chatting about him staying absent today thanks to a little something that has been so terrible for our complete globe, you use that in a feeling to get again?”

Conor has all the income in the environment, he has all the fame, but now when you start out to dig at that level, it’s like any individual demands to get to McGregor and help him to start to sort of re-shift his thoughts and his concentrate and get him again to a greater put. It’s regrettable.”
