Khabib Responds to Conor McGregor’s Deleted Tweet About His Dead Father

The feud between Conor McGregor and Khabib rages on after Conor’s latest below the belt tweet about Khabib’s dead father.  “Covid is good and father is evil?” wrote McGregor, in what fans took as a response to Khabib’s message in the wake of the Irish superstar’s defeat to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264.


In an appearance on Mike Tyson’s Hotboxin’ show, former UFC lightweight king Khabib responded to McGregor’s Dead Father tweet: :

“Like, when he’s talking about this, only evil can talk about your father, wife, kids, religion,” Nurmagomedov told Tyson and co-host Henry Cejudo.

“If you’re a normal human, you’re never going to talk about this stuff. For me, it’s like, I think he posted this tweet (when he has) drunk too much or done something.

“And the next day, he always deletes these tweets. When he becomes [back to] normal life, he’s like, ‘Oh, look what I did.’ Then he deletes. This is my opinion what he does all the time.”

After Tyson suggested “anything goes” in the fight game, Khabib responded: “I agree – if you want to promote the fight.

“But when someone is not with us, he is not even alive, this shows what you have inside. This shows how dirty you are.

“When you are one of the best in the world and you come and you punch someone who is like 70 years old, like an old man, this shows your heart.

“This shows who you are inside, how dirty you are. When you have parents and you have kids, how can you show yourself like this? I don’t understand why his close people don’t tell him, ‘Hey, what’s going on?’”

Khabib retired from the octagon undefeated after defending his title against Justin Gaethje last October and is now 100% about coaching.

It’s a shame we couldn’t see one more fight between Conor and Khabib…

Guess we’ll just have to settle for this name calling crap for the rest of our lives.
