Irish boxer Conor McGregor posted a status line aimed at Mr. Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, Khabib’s father died of Covid-19.
“Covid-19 is good and the father is evil?”, McGregor tweeted on July 27.
Follow Sportbible, McGregor responded to being mocked by Khabib after losing to Dustin Poirier at the UFC 264 event on the evening of July 10. “Good always beats evil. Happy for Dustin Poirier. I hope you get the championship belt by the end of the year,” Khabib gloated when McGregor lost.
The boxer nicknamed “The Notorious” also digs about Khabib’s father’s death. Mr. Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, father and coach of the Russian boxer, passed away at the age of 57 in July 2020 due to Covid-19 complications.
Fans were outraged by McGregor’s post, although he deleted the status line not long after. “McGregor has clearly crossed the line,” one person tweeted. ” McGregor’s post makes me happy because he broke his leg,” one person commented. “I used to be a big fan of McGregor, but now I have lost all respect,” the person said.
The departure of his father is also the reason why Khabib lost his inspiration to compete and decided to retire at the end of last year. Khabib has competed in MMA since 2008, fought 29 fights and won all, including 13 in the UFC. The Russian boxer won the UFC belt in 2018 when he defeated American opponent Al Iaquinta. He then had three successful title defenses, in duels with Conor McGregor, Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje.
Khabib once faced McGregor in the title match at the UFC 229 event in October 2018. This match, the Russian boxer took the initiative, before defeating his opponent with a neck lock in the fourth round.
The animosity between Khabib and McGregor took place for a long time and caused many scandals for the UFC. The first was Conor’s attack on the bus carrying Khabib, causing the Irish boxer to go to court in New York. After meeting at UFC 229, the two teams clashed, leading to the Nevada State Athletic Commission’s ban on both Khabib and McGregor.
