Tweet and delete: Conor McGregor’s favorite pastime?
The UFC superstar took to Twitter on Friday night and posted an expletive tweet aimed at one of his biggest rivals, former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. The two fought back in October 2018 at UFC 229 with Nurmagomedov retaining his lightweight title via fourth-round submission.
The buildup to the fight was the most volatile of each fighter’s career, with both taking savage shots at each other through the media and during press conferences. And after “The Eagle” secured the neck crank finish, he jumped out of the Octagon toward McGregor’s team which started a brawl between the two parties.
The beef was far from settled that night and they have continued to frequently taken shots at each other. Friday night was no different for the Irishman.
He shared a photo of his fight with Nurmagomedov on Friday night. The photo shows “The Eagle” wrapping his arms around McGregor’s leg, securing a takedown. However, McGregor shared his graphic take on the photo.
“I wasn’t holding his shorts!” McGregor wrote. “I was ramming my fingers up his homophobic a**. And just look at this happy face here. He loves it. He’s a fingers in the booty a** b****.”
Notorious deleted the tweet minutes after posting it.
