Conor McGregor blasted for ‘racist’ deleted tweet about Khabib Nurmagomedov’s wife

Conor started off the festivities by sending off a retirement tweet, to which Nurmagomedov felt compelled to respond to. Khabib would go on to post a warning aimed at McGregor for the disrespect he showed to his wife and the Islamic religion as a whole. Khabib was relatively quiet outside of his menacing warning before making his comments today.

I want to move forward, with my fans of all faiths and all backgrounds. All faiths challenge us to be our best selves.

On a night when more people were projected to watch a UFC event than ever before, Khabib Nurmagomedov retained his lightweight title after a dominant performance against the Irishman.

With McGregor, really the only fight left worth selling is a Khabib rematch. For a man that has made a career of fighting anyone, anywhere, at any weight, the loss is undoubtedly a big blemish on his resume.

For Khabib, there has never been a bigger fighter at than Conor McGregor. Even back in the early days of the UFC when the division was dominated by the likes of fan-favorite BJ Penn, no fighter has ever come close to matching the star power and appeal of McGregor. While there are a number of solid contenders at waiting for their shot at the belt, the fact of the matter is none of them really move the needle.

  • Who cares?
  • On Tuesday night, McGregor took shots at the wife of his last opponent, Khabib Nurmagomedov , on Twitter, saying, "Your wife is a towel mate," while posting two photos of Nurmagomedov and his wife on their wedding day. In the pictures, Nurmagomedov's wife's face is veiled.
  • Conor McGregor broke his silence on Friday night's incident in the 3Arena as he took to Twitter to explain his altercation with British referee Marc Goddard and a Bellator staff member. McGregor's SBG teammate Charlie Ward had just stopped John Redmond at the end of the first round of their fight at Bellator when 'The Notorious' leapt from his cageside seat, scaled the cage and confronted Goddard for not calling a halt to the bout earlier.
  • The message to Muslim Khabib Nurmagomedov included the image with the caption 'Your wife's a towel mate' and was met with a barrage of criticism on social media.

If the fighters decide not to lock horns once more, McGregor will likely stay retired until Dana White comes along with some highly marketable super prospect and offers Conor all the money in the world. For Khabib, he will have to defend his belt at some point.

The winner of Poirier and Holloway looms in the not so distant future and Nurmagomedov is eligible to fight as soon as July 6th following his suspension after the McGregor brawl.

This would set up a clear path for a McGregor rematch should both sides decide to go through the circus again. Published Apr 4, at pm Read More.
