Former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov opened up about his rival Conor Mcgregor and the tweets he recently has been posting.
UFC superstar Conor Mcgregor recently posted some over-the-line tweets regarding Khabib and his late father. Conor received a lot of hate for his tweets. Even Khabib reacted to those tweets and said that he feels those were terrible things to say to someone and he was definitely not happy about it.
After the win for Dustin, his former opponent, and retired UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov congratulated him on his win.
Good always defeats evil.
Very happy for @DustinPoirier I hope you will get the belt end of the year

“Good always defeats evil. Very happy for @DustinPoirier I hope you will get the belt end of the year”
To which Conor replied by tweeting a bizarre tweet.
“Covid is good and father is evil?”
Khabib Nurmagomedov talks about Conor Mcgregor Tweets
Khabib Nurmagomedov talked about the incident during an interview on the “Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson” podcast.
“When he talked about this, only evil can talk about your father, wife, kids, religion,” Nurmagomedov said. “If you’re a normal human, you’re never going to talk about this stuff. For me, I think he posts this tweet (while) drunk too much or (he was doing) something. Then the next day, he always deletes these tweets. When he becomes normal life (he looks at his phone) and says, ‘Oh, look what I did.’ Then he deletes it. This is my opinion what he does all the time.
“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 one of the best in the world and you come and you punch someone who is like 70 years old, like an old man (in a pub), 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 go, ‘Hey, what’s going on?’”
According to Khabib the main reason behind Conor being level is because of the money he has earned. Khabib feels that the money has taken over Conor and is making him do all this necessary stuff.
“When you become rich, when you become famous, some people they lose real people around them,” Nurmagomedov said. “They lose them. Real people who love you, they’re going to tell you the truth. But fake people? They always say, ‘You’re good.’ They never say to you nothing because they don’t want to upset you because they know they’ll lose this comfortable spot. Real people, they don’t care about this. They were with you before you became famous and rich. They don’t care about your money. They just love you. I think he lose a lot of people around him. I don’t think he have people who were with him before when he become champion. Everybody needs someone who reminds you, ‘This is good, this is bad.’”
