After defeating Justin Gaethje by submission at UFC 254 in Abu Dhab
i, United Arab Emirates, Khabib Nurmagomedov retired.
Following a promise he made to his mother after the death of his fa
ther, Khabib Nurmagomedov ended his career in mixed martial arts.
Conor McGregor has criticised the Russian for not wanting to come o
ut of retirement to take him on once more.
In since-deleted tweets, the Irishman claimed that the Russian "we
t the bed" when he retired.
At UFC 229, McGregor and Khabib squared off, but the Irishman lost
to the Russian by fourth-round submission.
Conor also said that if this fight ever happened, his own father wo
uld slap Nurmagomedov.
He even uploaded a picture of their game with the caption:
"Lion King shivers in fear. Unscathed. They won't do a thing. Wait until I get up; I'm going to beat the entire family.
The lot is atop the cage. There's a f***ing lion lazing around. And a rat was knawing."
Since then, the post has also been removed.
