Looking at the current UFC situation, it seems that the tiff between former Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor and the current champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is far from getting a conclusion so soon. After tasting defeat in the first encounter at UFC 229, Conor McGregor has shown his interest in the rematch multiple times through social media. Conor tweeted to book his rematch at Moscow after Khabib’s immediate victory against Dustin Poirier at UFC 242 but faced heavy backlash and trolls from the fans. Despite the trolls, the Irishman kept his social media policy strong and recently posted a GIF regarding Khabib.
Book my rematch for Moscow.— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) September 7, 2019
In his latest tweet, Conor McGregor posted a GIF where he is seen crawling back on the mat while Khabib is rushing towards him. The moment is from UFC 229 main-event when Khabib landed a right hand and Conor fell on the mat. Conor posted the GIF on Twitter with the caption “F*%K an 8 count let’s dance baby” as an anniversary post to UFC 229. Khabib has not yet responded to the tweet but it can be assumed that we are heading towards Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov 2.
UFC President Dana White has confirmed that Conor McGregor will return to the octagon very soon but there are still no confirmations about his opponent. However, if we look at the Twitter posts, McGregor has already attracted a lot of challenges. Dustin ‘The Diamond’ Poirier tweeted that he is going to fight the Irishman (Conor McGregor) next in response to Dan Hooker’s callout. However, the former two-division UFC champion has not confirmed the fight against Poirier with his eyes fixed on the current lightweight champion Khabib Numragomedov.
