Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov continue to trade barbs on social mediaGet the Full StoryConor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov are still going at it on social media. Well, there s certainly interest in seeing Conor McGregor lock horns with Khabib Nurmagomedov after The Eagle s three-round thrashing of Edson Barboza at UFC 219 and subsequent Twitter beef with The Notorious .
Shortly after Nurmagomedov s lopsided win over Barboza, McGregor, the current UFC lightweight champion, called Khabib s performance dog sh-t on Twitter and told the undefeated Dagestani to get on his knees and beg for a fight.
Nurmagomedov, who called out McGregor and Tony Ferguson in the post-fight interview, soon fired back with his own witty post and the two lightweights are still trading barbs on social media.

While Nurmagomedov has been inactive as of late, fighting just three times in the past three and a half years, McGregor hasn t fought in the Octagon in over a year and has yet to defend his lightweight title. The Irishman spent most of 2017 hyping a mega-boxing match with Floyd Mayweather Jr., a fight which he eventually lost via 10th-round TKO at Las Vegas T-Mobile Arena this past August.
McGregor, who has hinted at coming back to MMA for a true fight , is currently trying to iron out a new contract with the UFC and wants to be paid his worth. Nurmagomedov, 29, has opted to fight McGregor and Ferguson on the same night.
