Conor McGregor appears to have directed another shot at UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, as the MMA superstars continue to feud even after their fates were decided over the bitter UFC 229 post-fight brawl.
On Tuesday, McGregor and Nurmagomedov were slapped with bans of six and nine months respectively by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for their roles in the carnage that followed the Russian fighter’s submission win in Las Vegas in October.
McGregor bragged on social media on Wednesday about the punch he landed on Khabib’s cousin and teammate Abubakar Nurmagomedov in the carnage at the T-Mobile Arena in October.
Nurmagomedov followed that shot by McGregor by posting footage of himself submitting McGregor in the fourth round, to the backdrop of ecstatic fans in his Dagestani homeland.
“Nothing else matters.”
Moments later Conoir posted a promotional tweet pushing his August McGregor fashion line.

This is all just more build up to their eventual fight.
We know it’s going to happen.
Maybe end of 2019?
Let’s hope so.
