The mental warfare between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov just got a bit more interesting thanks to McGregor’s religious jab at Khabib.
A few days back, Khabib had posted a picture of him facing off with McGregor with the caption ‘All Alcoholics will have the same end’. You can see the post below in case you missed it.
And now, McGregor has hit back at his rival in his usual fashion. The former champion posted a picture of him with the caption ‘Chilling in Jahannam’. You can see the tweet from McGregor below.
Chilling in Jahannam.
See you soon. pic.twitter.com/gsiSrXNkxy

For the uninitiated, Jahannam refers to an afterlife place for evildoers. There are mentions of the same in the Quran and it is a relevant concept in the Islamic religion. While such a religious jab from McGregor has split the MMA fans into two, it once again shows how good McGregor is when it comes to mind games.
Khabib is yet to reply to the incident and it would be interesting to see his response.
Do you think McGregor went a bit far by dragging religion into the build-up? Or do you think it was a right move from him? Either way, let us know in the comments.
