Just a few days after announcing his retirement from combat sports, Conor McGregor calls out Khabib Nurmagomedov in an irreverent fashion.
The UFC’s biggest star is apparently willing to go low to get a rematch against the undisputed lightweight champ after calling Khabib names and accusing him of being scared to take him on for the second time.
‘The Notorious’ and ‘The Eagle’ entered the Octagon in October to headline the momentous UFC 299 in Las Vegas, Nevada. As if most do not know, McGregor tapped out at the fourth round of his attempt to seize the 155-lb. belt via a rear-naked choke.
Of course, most of us are also aware of what took place after the nail-biting battle. Both fighters and their teammates are now facing their own set of fines and suspensions from the Nevada State Athletic Commission for the ugly post-fight fracas.

The phenomenal Irish fighter announced his retirement on Twitter last week amid controversies that UFC President Dana White refused to give him an equity stake in the promotion.
Most people have not taken McGregor’s retirement call seriously and the Russian phenom says it seems like ‘The Notorious’ called it a career in mixed martial arts to be a full-time Twitter warrior.
In a recent beef that the two had on social media, McGregor initially slammed ‘The Eagle’ about their UFC 229 showdown and Khabib responded with a dose of the Irish fighter’s own medicine.
Like You Always Do
The UFC’s former two-division champion is now calling out the lightweight titlist on his retirement in a brutal fashion.
“Don’t be scared of the rematch you little scurrying rat,” McGregor tweeted. “You will do what you are told like you always do.”

He is reportedly staging his comeback in Abu Dhabi in September against the winner of the Max Holloway vs Dustin Poirier interim battle.
Don’t be scared of the rematch you little scurrying rat.
You will do what you are told like you always do.
