One of the many fighters who gave his comment after the UFC 264 event was Khabib Nurmagomedov. The undefeated and now retired Dagestani fighter is well acquainted with Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor because he has fought against both, among other things.
While his fight against the Irishman has drawn a lot of tails and various conflicts outside the UFC’s cage, Khabib’s relationship with Dustin Poirier is much better. Thus, after the defeat of McGregor, Nurmagomedov wrote on his Twitter profile: '' Good always defeats evil.
I am happy for Dustin Poirier and I hope he will take the belt by the end of the year. " As expected, Conor McGregor did not like Khabib Nurmagomedov's "tweet" More than two weeks after the fight, the Irishman responded to one of his announcements while appalling the entire MMA public.
"COVID is good and father is evil?" the Irishman wrote, alluding to the death of Khabib's father, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, who died in the middle of last year due to a number of health complications, including coronavirus infection.
We have been waiting for Khabib Nurmagomedov's reaction to Conor McGregor's disgusting announcement for a long time, and the TMZ Sports journalist was the first to react.
Khabib on McGregor's tweet
He managed to meet Khabib and his manager Ali Abdelaziz and do a short interview with the fighter.
Khabib was initially asked how important the award for "Best Coach of the Year" is to him, considering that he is doing a better job in the corner of various fighters he trains and advises during fights. "Personally, it is more important to me that my fighters win me more than I win that award," he said, rejecting the possibility of returning to fighting.
A TMZ reporter then came up with the topic of Conor McGregor. Khabib was asked about the return of the Irishman, that is, whether he thinks that Conor can return to performances after such a serious injury. Khabib said he didn’t know and wasn’t sure, and then we came to a situation where Nurmagomedov and his manager noticed where the interview was leading and slowly began to leave the scene.
Still, the reporter asked the Dagestani what he thought of Conor McGregor's "tweets" and managed to get Khabib's reaction in a few words. "I think so," Khabib said when asked if he thought McGregor had crossed the line with his announcement.
Nurmagomedov was then asked what exactly he thought of Conor's announcement regarding his father. "Terrible," the Dagestani was brief and clear as he left the place where he had given a short interview.
