It’s been 4 years for the reason that record-breaking UFC 229 PPV card headlined by a grudge match between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov. The latter ended up shedding by way of fourth-round submission, as the previous incited the now notorious post-fight brawl.
However that evening remains to be seemingly contemporary in McGregor’s thoughts, as seen in his latest tweets. In a collection of posts, “The Infamous” in contrast himself to a springbok, an antelope native to South Africa.
McGregor then went after longtime shade commentator Joe Rogan, who known as him out from the printed sales space for supposedly throwing unlawful knee strikes at Khabib.
“‘That was an unlawful knee on the top of a grounded opponent,’” McGregor stated in a mocking tone. “Shut up, Joe, you little idiot, ye. What are you speaking about, smash this and smash that?
“What was smashed was my knee into his f—kin’ eye socket, yeah? Shit… ‘That’s a knee to a grounded opponent!’ Name the cops! F—n tick, ya.”
McGregor hasn’t seen motion since UFC 264 in July 2021 in opposition to Dustin Poirier, the place he misplaced by way of first-round TKO on account of a damaged leg. He hasn’t been a part of the USADA testing pool and would want to finish six consecutive months of testing earlier than he may return to motion, in accordance with UFC president Dana White.
