Khabib Nurmagomedov injured, pulls out of UFC 187 and Anthony Pettis is the first to troll him

For months, maybe even years Russian and bear wrestling pro Khabib Nurmagomedov has been trolling former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis. If Pettis was frightened by a spider or stubbed his toe in the privacy of his own home, Nurmagomedov somehow found out about it and quickly made fun of “Showtime” on twitter. Before the final bell sounded for Pettis’ loss to Rafael dos Anjos, Nurmagomedov was already firing off verbal smack to the now former titleholder.

Nurmagomedov’s perfectly time and core cutting shit talk was so pristine that some MMA conspiracy theorists even claimed that someone other than the Russian Sambo player was controlling his social media accounts. Nurmagomedov’s Photoshop game is on point.

Before a routine practice at American Kickboxing Academy in preparation for his scheduled UFC 187 fight with Donald Cerrone, Nurmagomedov’s tweeted out this picture.

Hours later Nurmagomedov reportedly injured his meniscus in practice and would be forced out of his UFC 187 bout. Pettis with a Showtime kick off his iPhone sent this out into the Internet world.

MMA Gods take but they also give. Nurmagomedov versus Pettis from Twitter to the cage, coming to an Octagon near you later this year?
