As “Notorious” likes to do, the Irishman took to Twitter and randomly fired a shot at his rival, former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. The two have a fiery history and they still hold the record for the highest sold UFC PPV of all time.
McGregor and “The Eagle” fought for Nurmagomedov’s 155-pound title in October 2018 at UFC 229, and the Russian defeated Notorious via fourth-round submission.
On Wednesday, October 13, 2021, McGregor took to Twitter to ask the Head of The Investigative Committee of Russia, Alexander Bastrykin, where Nurmagomedov’s defecation medal was. Notorious also shared a screenshot of The Eagle with a frightened look on his face.
See McGregor’s tweet below:
The tweet was likely in response to Nurmagomedov’s earlier Instagram Story. The Eagle shared a photo of McGregor writing, “Where is my medal Bastrykin? I was also beaten by Dagestanis in a crowd!” The former champ was likely referring to the famous brawl that took place after their bout.

McGregor & Khabib 2 Could Have Potentially Happened if Notorious Beat Dustin Poirier in January
Nurmagomedov announced his retirement from the sport after defending his belt against Justin Gaethje in October 2020. However, UFC president Dana White was adamant that he could lure the Russian back into the Octagon by putting on a rematch with his nemesis, McGregor.
But all that hinged on Notorious defeating Dustin Poirier in January 2021, and that didn’t happen. McGregor was finished in the second round, which took all the air out of a possible second fight between Notorious and The Eagle.
