Beef: Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor’s coach have intense argument over Muslim religion

Beef: Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor’s coach have intense argument over Muslim religion

Three subjects in human life can turn any conversation into a 1990s forum showdown in a matter of seconds: politics, unsolicited parenting advice and religion. Hours after an UFC win two years in the making, Khabib Nurmagomedov told the world he would like to fight current champ Rafael dos Anjos in one of the fall months due to his observance of Ramadan in the summer. Nurmagomedov is a practicing Sunni Muslim.

Tearing a play out of his most famous fighter’s playbook, SBG head coach John Kavanagh had a smart-ass/joking/subtweet on deck for MMA reporter Ariel Helwani. Kavanagh, the coach of Conor McGregor, did not direct his tweet directly at Nurmagomedov but his attempt at humor was somewhat clear.

Two days later Nurmagomedov had an answer and a hashtag of his own. Known wrestler of 800-pound wildlife, Nurmagomedov was not entertained at all by Kavanagh’s remarks or his follow-up emoji use. Nurmagomedov vs. McGregor coming soon to an UFC cage near you?
