    Conor McGregor couldn’t beat Khabib Nurmagomedov, but he didn’t miss an opportunity to gloat when the UFC lightweight champion’s family took a loss in the Octagon.

    Welterweight Abubakar Nurmagomedov, Khabib’s cousin, was unsuccessful in his UFC debut on Saturday, losing via first-round submission to David Zawada on the preliminary portion of UFC Moscow.

    Shortly after Nurmagomedov’s loss, McGregor tweeted and deleted a series of insults mocking Abubakar and Khabib, who was in Abubakar’s corner:

    McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov fought in the main event of UFC 229 last October. Their bout was the culmination of a lengthy and personal feud between the two that involved associates from both fighters’ camps. On fight night, Nurmagomedov defeated McGregor by fourth-round submission to successfully defend the UFC lightweight championship. Post-fight, Nurmagomedov leaped into the crowd to attack McGregor cornerman Dillon Danis.

    During the ensuing melee, McGregor became embroiled in a physical altercation with several of Nurmagomedov’s teammates, including Abubakar. All the fighters involved were later fined and sanctioned by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

    Khabib Nurmagomedov says Conor McGregor needs '9 or 10' UFC wins for a rematch
    A rematch between UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and past champion Conor McGregor would be among the most popular fights in MMA history and make both men millions of dollars.
    However, one of them still doesn’t seem very eager about the idea.

    “As for a rematch, to fight for a belt in the UFC, I remember I had something like nine or 10 fights. If he wins 10 fights in a row, then that’s completely possible,” Nurmagomedov said.

    Of course, a potential rematch isn’t a matter in which Nurmagomedov has final word, but it does show how much the Russian doesn’t want to step back into the Octagon with McGregor.

    Khabib and McGregor’s history
    The antagonistic relationship between two of the most famous fighters in the world is well known to anyone that has even lightly followed the UFC in recent years.

    So you can see why Nurmagomedov might not want to put the fame and money of a rematch into McGregor’s pocket unless he absolutely has to.

    LOL of course it is, if it means he's rejecting it. The UFC can't make him fight. They can strip him or offer him more cash but Khabib absolutely has the final say in whether he'll fight.

    Or reTapping.
    The sheer irony of him mocking someone for tapping is mind boggling.

    Hey Conor, maybe after Abubakar tapped he could have looked Zawada in the face and said “It’s just business”....just here to collect a pay check...right Connie?
