Habib and Conor McGregor exchange shots after UFC257

Love has never been lost between UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and former dual division champion Conor McGregor. Friction between the two spilled over again on Saturday night after McGregor lost to Dustin Poirier at the UFC257 main event in Abu Dhabi.

McGregor seemed to be doing well throughout the first round, but Poirier secretly landed a calf kick, eventually hitting McGregor’s lead leg.

In the second round, McGregor’s legs began to weaken. Poirier made the most of it by setting a hard punch that rocked McGregor with a kick. Cumulative effect sent Irish superstars to canvas. Poirier continued and ended.

“This happened. When we change teams, we leave the sparring partner who made you the champion and sparring with little kids far from reality,” Habib tweeted shortly after the fight. It seems that he shot McGregor.

“My team has been a team since day one. I haven’t changed any team. That’s the reality. It’s the character of the guy behind the mask, who respects the athlete,” McGregor said in a comment from Habib. I said in response.

“What does he want to do? Does he want to come back or no? Because he hasn’t thrown a leg kick.”

Even UFC President Dana White seems willing to accept that Habib is unlikely to return to the Octagon after the fight on Saturday night. But if so, McGregor sounds amiable to fight him again and tries to avenge his previous loss.

“If he wants to make rude comments, come back and go again, my man. I’m here for it. It’s a fight story. When you come back, come back. You Will try to do it. “
