MMA star Conor McGregor personally attacked the wife of one of his longtime rivals on Twitter. In a since deleted tweet, Conor claimed that Khabib Nurmagomedov’s wife was a “towel.”
He posted 2 photos from Khabib’s wedding day along with the caption, “Your wife is a towel mate” clearly aimed at making fun of Khabib’s wife’s clothing.
He then added: “Don’t be scared of the rematch you little scurrying rat.
McGregor deleted the message minutes later.
Khabib and his wife are devout Muslims and his manager, Ali Abdelaziz, took the insult as a direct slight at Khabib’s religion.
“Talking sh*t, this guy is insulting someone’s wife and making fun of her religion and belief. He doesn’t realize he’s insulting 1.5 billon Muslims. Religion and family is a no no. You’re fucked Connor, let’s see what the media is going to say now. He’s a rapist, and a bitch.”
