Welcome to Midnight Mania!

The dangerous blood between Conor McGregor and the Nurmagomedov clan has not calmed within the practically two years since McGregor and Khabib confronted off contained in the Octagon. Even with McGregor retired and Khabib slated reverse Justin Gaethje, evidently the feud solely grows worse.

Abubakar Nurmagomedov is one in every of Khabib’s cousins and a UFC Welterweight. On Instagram, Abubakar mocked McGregor with the publish beneath. The caption roughly reads, “That is when the coronavirus and you may’t breathe.”

Earlier than attending to McGregor’s response, it’s completely weird that Abubakar would make a remark like this whereas Nurmagomedov patriarch and Khabib’s father Abdulmanap continues to combat a life-and-death battle because of the virus. Regardless, McGregor fired again:

McGregor’s since-deleted reply reads, “I figured it was all only a cowl up about Abdulmanap. A canopy as much as cover the dearth of exercise and the pulling out of fights and working away. Good luck however keep in mind – Allah sees all!”

Secure to say, McGregor didn’t take the excessive highway within the newest leg of this beef. It’s a foul search for each of the boys concerned in COVID-related trash discuss, however as of proper now, Khabib himself has not replied to the “Infamous” Irishman.

Nevertheless, it’s exhausting to think about him not taking this personally.

Justin Gaethje vs. Kamaru Usman sparring is probably going higher than most UFC predominant occasions.

Slips, rips, and KO clips

Should you’re like me and stopped watching The Final Fighter (TUF) again in like 2014, it’s possible you’ll actually get pleasure from this clip!

I really feel like UFC remains to be ready for somebody to return by means of and throw everybody’s kickboxing off with a severe teep …

This has by accident turn out to be a Bisping-heavy evening, however I can’t argue with historical past.
