UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has posted a response to bitter rival Conor McGregor’s tweet likening his wife to a “towel”, by labeling the Irishman a “rapist” and a “hypocrite”.

The MMA champ went hard.

“Rapist, you are Rapist. You are a hypocrite who is not responsible for your actions. Justice will find you. We will see.”

The tweet was accompanied by a photo in which McGregor is posing with a young lady, though this is understood no to be the woman who McGregor is under investigation for. 

McGregor was arrested and questioned by police in connection to the accusations of the assault, before being released without charge in January this year. The allegations have yet to be proven and McGregor’s questioning does not imply guilt on his part.

You just get the sense that all of this is about a rematch. 

Nurmagomedov’s Tweet has instantly gone viral. His manager, Ali Abdelaziz, also weighed in with an outlandish post.

“Talking shit, this guy is insulting someone’s wife and making fun of her religion and belief. He doesn’t realize he’s insulting 1.5 billon Muslims. Religion and family is a no no. You’re fucked Connor, let’s see what the media is going to say now. He’s a rapist, and a bitch,” he said.


This is really getting out of hand.
