Conor McGregor has once again insulted Khabib Nurmagomedov's father in a now-deleted Tweet which he posted last night — this and much more on Tuesday's social media roundup.
Conor McGregor insults Khabib Nurmagomedov's father in deleted Tweet
Something which is quite common from multiple MMA fighters is they will go on huge Twitter rants where they Tweet random things and then delete the Tweets pretty much instantly. The two fighters who do this the most are Jon Jones and Conor McGregor.
You would've thought that after Conor McGregor's post-fight actions towards Dustin Poirier and his family that McGregor would start to regret verbally attacking his opponent's families and wives but it seems he hasn't.
After Poirier defeated McGregor for the second time at UFC 264, Nurmagomedov congratulated Poirier on his win on social media and said that "good always defeats evil."
McGregor has seemingly responded to Khabib's comments but in doing so has insulted Khabib's father, Abdulmanap who sadly passed away last year after contracting COVID-19.
See the now-deleted Tweet from McGregor below.
As you can see from the Tweet, McGregor has seemingly made fun of the passing of Khabib's father.
McGregor is really starting to damage his public image if it wasn't damaged enough already after the way he acted after his trilogy defeat to Dustin Poirier.
