The UFC lightweight division (up to 70.3 kg.) Gained a new star after UFC 249 , held last Saturday (09). Justin Gaethje defeated Tony Ferguson and won the interim division belt. But it was another star in the category that caught the eye through social media: Conor McGregor . The Irishman fired attacks on Khabib Nurmagomedov , Dustin Poirier , as well as the protagonists of last week’s event.
Through his Twitter account, McGregor started attacking Justin Gaethje and old rival Khabib: “Fans do this sport! Watching the night before last, I was against fighting without them. But it will be a pleasure to demonstrate the power I have with zero background noise for them. It’s me and Justin next, as Khabib is the most cowardly fighter in the middle. I guarantee it, ”wrote McGregor, who challenged the American and disdained Justin’s possible confrontation with Nurmagomedov.
“Justin, there is no danger in a man who embraces his legs, we all know. Try to dance around the real threat as much as you want. I will slaughter you. Your teeth.
The fans make the sport!
Watching the other night I was against going in without them. But it will be my fucking pleasure to display the power I possess with zero background noise for them.

Conor did not stop strafing division rivals and returned his target to Tony Ferguson , overtaken by Gaethje, last Saturday: “I love Tony. We represented him very well at Paradigm Sports and were betrayed by the promise of a baseball contract. But the head and the preparation here were shameful. His methods and conversation are funny / fun, but he was never at the perceived level. Despite being tough ”, said
Even Dustin Poirier left
The Irishman later decided to attack as a matchmaker – responsible for scheduling UFC fights. For him, the return of Ferguson must be against Dustin Poirier , former interim champion of the category. The Irishman also made an analysis of the possible duel. “It’s Dustin vs. Tony when Tony heals. If he can. Dustin will also hit you if you don’t make changes. And they won’t be done. Dustin, despite being willing and in the fight, will be taken to the ground again. Some wins here and there, then doubled in half. Rinse and repeat – it’s Dustin’s career ”, he shot.
The target of McGregor’s attacks, Khabib did not let go and answered the Irishman. The Russian, who would be Ferguson’s rival at UFC 249 , is confined in Russia by the coronavirus pandemic, recalled the knockdown he applied at Conor in the duel between them in October 2018.
“Yes, we remember you, you were so kind that night, be the same, don’t be fake,” wrote Khabib on Twitter.
“Do you hug legs? Did you forget how I knocked you out, or are you typing drunk? I hit you in striking, I hit you in wrestling, I absolutely destroyed you on the ground, I made you grab air with your hands, and in the end you gave up. Finally, don’t forget your words, “It’s just business”, he published
