Everyone in the MMA community knows how Khabib feels about ‘The Notorious’ Conor Mcgregor. Ever since UFC 205, when Khabib got the snub for the Lightweight title shot, things have turned rather sour between the two. Conor and Khabib have had their fair share of back and forth, and the latest in the addition comes after today’s breaking news. Tony Ferguson pulled out of their much anticipated fight at UFC 223, and it didn’t take long before Khabib took the issue to twitter.
Khabib taunts Conor on Twitter
Where are you now? @TheNotoriousMMA

This was in response to Conor’s earlier unambiguous tweet.

Conor had earlier claimed that he had demanded the UFC to let him fight Frankie Edgar on short notice, after Max Holloway pulled out of the UFC 222 main event. This created a whole lot of noise and dissatisfaction among the UFC LW roster. Conor has not defended his LW belt since November 12, 2016 and Khabib has made sure, what he thinks of Conor and the whole situation with that tweet.
As it stands now though, the roles have been reversed and Max Holloway, the current UFC Featherweight Champ steps up to meet Khabib ‘The Eagle’ Nurmagamedov for the Undisputed Lightweight belt.
