Khabib Nurmagomedov may be retired, but his rivalry with Conor McGregor remains as intense as ever.

Since McGregor snapped his leg in his rubber match with Dustin Poirier, his issues with Nurmagomedov have been making news again. After the loss, which was tied to McGregor making some controversial comments before and afterward, Nurmagomedov alluded to his rival being “evil”.

In response, McGregor appeared to bring the death of Nurmagomedov’s father, Abdulmanap, into it.

More recently, Nurmagomedov appeared on Mike Tyson’s podcast, and he criticized McGregor for his actions once again.

It’s being reported that McGregor fired back at the retired fighter, with the tweet below (which has since been deleted).

“When’s the last time he’s even seen them actually? His wife ? Mother? How bout [sic] you go spend some time with your kids and family for a change and keep my name out of your mouth b4 [sic] you get trapped somewhere again you mightn’t be so lucky next time.”

Nurmagomedov and McGregor fought in 2018, and following one of the most intense lead-ups to a fight in MMA history, the latter was submitted in round four.
