UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is starting to play the game, as the undefeated Dagestani just trolled Conor McGregor on social media ahead of today’s UFC 229 pre-fight press conference at Radio City Music Hall in New York.
McGregor, the former lightweight champ, has took aim at Khabib’s ‘quivering coward’ of a father on Instagram, and ‘The Eagle’ returned fire with a hilarious tweet of his own on Wednesday.
Check out the video below.
‘Tomorrow’ is a reference to today’s media event in New York City, where Khabib and McGregor will come face-to-face and square off for the first time in front of the press. The media conference is scheduled to take place at 5 PM ET/2 PM PT, and will be live-streamed on a 330-foot mega-screen between 45th and 45th streets on Broadway.
The following month, Nurmagomedov will defend his lightweight title against McGregor at UFC 229. The highly anticipated pay-per-view will take place on Oct. 6 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
