Khabib calls McGregor 'dirty' in full response to disgusting deleted tweets
Khabib keeps his cool as he hits back.
Conor McGregor hit the headlines after he slammed the sad passing of Khabib Nurmagomedov's father, who passed away from complications relating to Covid. After McGregor's fight with Dustin Poirier at UFC 264, in which McGregor was injured, Khabib tweeted that "good always defeats evil", to which McGregor made the connection between Covid and Khabib's late father.
But now Khabib has hit back.
Appearing on the “Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson” podcast, Khabib commented on his rival, who he referred to as “dirty”.
“When he talked about this, only evil can talk about your father, wife, kids, religion,” Nurmagomedov said. “If you’re normal human, you’re never going to talk about this stuff. For me, I think he post this tweet (while) drunk too much or (he was doing) something.
"Then the next day, he always delete these tweets. When he become normal life (he looks at his phone) and says, ‘Oh, look what I did.’ Then he delete. This is my opinion what he do 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?'”
Nurmagomedov also said that he doesn't think McGregor is capable of change as he does not have the right people around him.
“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.'”
Nurmagomedov said he doesn’t let any of it bother him. He says that his composure and attitude have aided in his widely successful fighting career, and now he gets to enjoy retirement while McGregor continues to make a fool out of himself.
