Irishman Goes Off On Khabib Nurmagomedov And Paulie Malignaggi, UFC Lightweight Champion Claps Back Saying ‘You Will Live With This Shame All Your Life’
Former two-division champion Conor Mcgregor didn’t win any fight since November of 2016 when he defeated Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205. Then in 2017 Irishman crossover and made his boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather but ended up losing the bout via tenth round stoppage. Most recently Mcgregor failed a bid to score the 155-pound title when Khabib Nurmagomedov submitted him in the fourth round at UFC 229 back in October.
At the moment ‘Notorious’ has no fight scheduled so that doesn’t mean he can sit back and see all the action unfold. Yesterday night Irishman took to social media throwing shade at Khabib Nurmagomedov and Paulie Malignaggi. Off course, Mcgregor has a history with both athletes.
Mcgregor’s last outing with Khabib didn’t go well as he lost the bout and the post-fight brawl made quite a scene that put both fighters in trouble.
Meanwhile, a feud with Malignaggi is well known which began when Paulie helped McGregor in the camp for his historic boxing match against Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2017. Things become ugly between both when footage of knockdown (during training) was released to the public. Since then Mcgregor and Paulie are bickering back and forth on social media.
Last night Mcgregor took to social media and used some profane words for both Khabib and Paulie:
“Let the record show. I like Paulie Malinaggi,” wrote McGregor. “Here is a confrontation between us regarding a picture he was upset about. Yes you heard that right. A picture. I told him here, to his face ‘Don’t be bitching.’ Common knowledge I would think for a fighting man. Don’t be a bitch, bitching. The same thing I said to Khabib at the end of round 3. My round. Don’t be bitching!Every single round bitching to the referee.He was even bitching in the fourth round from mount position. It baffled me. If anyone should have been saying anything to the referee, it should have been me in that 1st round. That round he held onto my legs for four minutes straight. With zero activity. But a fight is a fight who gives a fuck. Crying to the referee like a proper bitch. I was trying to dig my fingers into his Adams Apple. Many individuals in the fight business, I have learned lately, are absolute bitches.
“I know you’s are broke boys. But don’t be broke bitches.”
Rumors run rampant on social media earlier this week that McGregor was in early negotiations for a boxing match against Malignaggi. But UK’s express sport reported that former boxer has insisted no such talks have taken place.
Earlier today, UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov responded with an Instagram post a pic where he submitted Mcgregor, with a caption “You will live with this shame all your life, bi…”,
“You will live with this shame all your life, bi… #tapmachine #mactaper”
UFC President Dana White recently said Khabib vs. Mcgregor rematch could take place in 2019 once they cleared their issues with NSAC. Their showdown at UFC 229 generated 2.4 million PPV buys and the most lucrative one in UFC history mainly due to McGregor’s bus attack where Nurmagomedov was also on board at UFC 223 media day in Brooklyn.
Currently, McGregor is busy promoting his brand proper no. 12 whiskey and welcomed his second child last week. Previously Irishman said he’s willing to fight anybody if a rematch with Khabib, didn’t come to fruition. He has been briefly linked to a showdown with Dustin Poirier and Donald Cerrone and most recently expressed interest in a fight with Japanese sensation Tenshin Nasukawa.
