Last night at UFC 242 in Abu Dhabi, UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov successfully defended his title by submitting interim champion Dustin Poirier in the third-round via rear-naked choke.
Immediately after Khabib defeated Poirier, he was called out by his former opponent Conor McGregor on social media. He requested the UFC to “book the rematch for Moscow”. McGregor lost to Khabib last year at UFC 229 via fourth-round submission in Las Vegas.
Meanwhile, top lightweight contender, Justin Gaethje got personal with Conor McGregor and wrote a harsh reply to the Irishmen.
😂 you’re a tool. You have lost everything already. You are a shit human, father, and husband. Fuck you.

“You’re a tool. You have lost everything already. You are a shit human, father, and husband. F*ck you.”
Justin Gaethje is coming off of a first-round KO victory over Edson Barboza and on the other hand, Donald Cerrone lost his last fight to Tony Ferguson via TKO (Doctor’s stoppage).
