Conor McGregor hits out at "fat" Khabib Nurmagomedov and rules out UFC rematch

Conor McGregor has accused "fat" Khabib Nurmagomedov of avoiding a rematch while ruling out a second UFC fight.

McGregor is set to return to the cage after two years out when he takes on UFC contender Michael Chandler as part of the latest series of The Ultimate Fighter. The Irishman will looking to breathe new life into his MMA career having been defeated in three of his last four fights, including against bitter rival Nurmagomedov in a high-profile clash in 2018.

Nurmagomedov retired just two years after their grudge fight but the pair have remained heavily linked with a second meeting ever since. However McGregor went on an angry rant on Twitter taking aim at Nurmagomedov's entire team including coach Javier Mendez and manager Ali Abdealaziz.

He first tweeted: "Firaz Zihabi is a little douchebag, Trevor Wittman is a pad man. Javier Mendez is a fat lick a** kick boxer, Mike brown is a smelly p***k, Greg Jackson got caught up, the system of coach Kavanagh is now shining through. In years to come the world will know what we have been at."

Abdelaziz then responded: "Javier Mendez trained Khabib to beat the s*** out of you and took your souls away. Mike Brown trained Dustin Poirier to level you back-to-back. Trevor is your worst nightmare because you would not even look at Justin, grow up."

McGregor then issued a rematch verdict aimed at Nurmagomedov, firing back: "Hey, s**t stain on the game, I’m talking as of now it is beginning to bare fruit. We beat their system of fighting on TUF [The Ultimate Fighter]. It's locked down. It’s no wonder s*** pants [Nurmagomedov] scurried. There’s no competing now. The head of the style is too fat a b**** and afraid to compete again. So we win. You can’t compete with us. Watch and witness you rat b******."

But Abdelaziz wanted the final laugh, finally tweeting: "Hey one more thing before I ignore your a**. If it was not for Herb Deen on October 6 when you guys fought you would have been dead, you have to be happy you still alive you should be grateful to him he spared your life. You will always be our b****."

McGregor's huge showdown with Nurmagomedov sold the most pay-per-views in UFC history and is considered the most iconic rivalry in the modern era of UFC. President Dana White tried regularly to persuade the undefeated Russian to renew his fiery feud with McGregor, but 'The Eagle' was intent on retiring in line with his late father's wishes.

The rivalry could spill over should McGregor ever to accept a contest with Nurmagomedov's protege Islam Makhachev who currently holds the title at 155lb. However it appears the Irishman will first make a comeback at 170lb where he could challenge for the title against British champion Leon Edwards.
