Khabib Nurmagomedov taunts Conor McGregor by calling him 'slow' in his first Instagram since victory

UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov poses during a ceremonial weigh-in for UFC 229 at T-Mobile Arena on October 05, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Nurmagomedov will defend his title against Conor McGregor at UFC 229 on October 6 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

It looks like the feud between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor is still alive and well after the Russian’s victory at UFC 229 on Saturday.

Nurmagomedov took to Instagram to call his opponent „slow“ in his first post since taking victory in Las Vegas.

In the post translated by Business Insider, the fighter said: „Brother, as you are too slow to follow, and I am starting to feel uncomfortable for you.

„I did tell you, that on 6th of October I would say it all, or did you really want me to get beaten?

„Apologies to all, who got offended by our victory. And to my real fans – you are the best.

„Thank you for your incredible support, I love you, sincerely yours – Khabib Nurmagomedov.“

По братски, хоть сейчас тормозите, а то уже мне самому за вас неудобно 😁 Я же говорил вам, 6 октября я все скажу, или вы реально хотели, чтоб меня там побили?))) Извиняюсь перед всеми, кого я обидел нашей общей победой✊️ А мои искренние Болельщики – вы просто космос 🚀 спасибо вам за вашу невероятную поддержку, я люблю вас, искренне ваш – Хабиб Нурмагомедов. #ТудаСюда #вореСахлъи

Nurmagomedov followed up with two more Instagram posts, the first of which read: „I think I need new haters, the old ones are starting to like me.“

Finally, the fighter wrote: „My face, when someone says that they didn’t like my jump, but I tried so hard.

„I hope I didn’t hurt anyone’s feelings with this jump.“

The fighter’s win was marred by his post-fight antics, which saw him leap out of the octagon towards McGregor’s entourage.

Las Vegas police escorted Nurmagomedov out of the arena and the incidents attracted condemnation from the UFC president Dana White.

The bad blood between McGregor and Nurmagomedov, which was sparked when the Russian was seen on video slapping McGregor’s teammate Artem Lobov in April, has been well-documented.

The altercation with Lobov led to McGregor attacking a bus full of UFC athletes and staff.

„He talk about my religion, my country, my father. He come to Brooklyn and he broke bus and he almost kill a couple people,“ Nurmagomedov said in his post-fight press conference.

„What about his s—? Why talk about I jump on the cage. I don’t understand.“

McGregor posted a photo of his own on social media in which he claimed that although he had lost the match, he had „won the battle,“ and said, „the war goes on.“


The 30-year-old has completed just one fight in a recent six-fight deal with the UFC, and he has already expressed a desire to contest a rematch with Nurmagomedov. „Good knock,“ he said on Twitter yesterday. „Looking forward to the rematch.“

In a separate post on Instagram, he posted a photo alongside a caption that read: „I’ll be back.“

We may not have heard the last of this feud.
