UFC president Dana White recently made headlines when he claimed Khabib Nurmagomedov, not Conor McGregor, was “the man” in the UFC.

For many years, McGregor was at the top of the sport and still remains the biggest draw today. However, he has suffered two losses in his last four fights, the most recent of which saw him get dominated by Nurmagomedov in their lightweight title fight last year.

McGregor has since teased a comeback repeatedly but has also had to deal with plenty of issues outside the Octagon. Nurmagomedov, meanwhile, would defend his title against Dustin Poirier and seems set to face Tony Ferguson next.

And last week, White said “The Eagle” was the one who calls the shots now:

“Khabib is the man now,” White said. “Conor isn’t the man anymore, so Khabib gets to sit back and call the shots.”

The Irishman did not take too kindly to those comments and retorted back on social media:

However, for former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping, he completely agrees with White:

“Dana went out there, and listen he said, ‘Conor’s not the man anymore. Khabib is the man, so I guess he gets to call the shots,’” Bisping said on his podcast (via BJ Penn). “That’s not a lie, he’s the champ. If you’re the champ, you’re the man. If you’re the only undefeated champ in the UFC, that also gives you a little more extra ‘the man.’

“If you’ve also got a ridiculously large following and you’re the biggest Muslim athlete out there, then also yeah that makes you the man. But it turns out Conor took exception to that. [He] wasn’t very happy and immediately went right back at Dana.”

Do you also agree with White?

The bad blood between Conor McGregor and UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is very much alive, and might never end. Recently, things heated up when UFC president Dana White called Nurmagomedov “the man” of the UFC, noting the moniker no longer belongs to McGregor.

That didn’t sit well with the Irishman, who fired back at those claims on Twitter. This sparked a war of words between the two former Octagon opponents. Here’s what Nurmagomedov had to say via Google Translate.

“This is a fiasco wino”

McGregor decided to respond to Nurmagomedov in Russian, and his words translated into, “See you in Moscow, pu**y.”

Nurmagomedov then decided to rip into McGregor for his recent sexual assault allegation in Ireland – the second within the last year. Here’s what Nurmagomedov had to say.

“In Moscow, rapists are not expected”

Of course, McGregor has not been officially convicted of rape, as reports out of Ireland linking him to sexual assault are purely allegations at this point. McGregor and Nurmagomedov fought at UFC 229 last year in October. “The Eagle” retained his lightweight title with a fourth-round submission via neck crank.

McGregor has been calling for a rematch with Nurmagomedov for quite some time. However, he’ll likely have to earn a victory before getting back into the conversation for a lightweight title opportunity.

What do you think about Nurmagomedov mentioning McGregor’s sexual assault allegation?

Dana White is now backing UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov as “the man” in the UFC. Speaking in a recent interview, the UFC boss admitted that “The Eagle” is now the man who gets to sit back and call the shots.

“Khabib is the man now,” White said. “Conor isn’t the man anymore, so Khabib gets to sit back and call the shots.”

It didn’t take McGregor too long to respond to that, taking to Twitter to rip into his former Octagon opponent. McGregor called Nurmagomedov a “jock strap sniffer.”

“Who’s not the man? Your man had that marquee event did he? More like an event in a marquee. A tent in the fucking sand it was. Keep spoofing to your self horse. Jock strap sniffer championships.”

McGregor and Nurmagomedov initially met inside the Octagon last year in October. They headlined UFC 229 on pay-per-view (PPV). Nurmagomedov pretty much dominated the fight from start to finish, ending things in the fourth round via submission with a neck crank. Of course, all hell broke loose after the bout when a team vs. team brawl broke out inside, and outside, of the Octagon.

Since the defeat, McGregor has been calling for a rematch with the Russian, but will likely need to pick up a win or two before getting back into the 155-pound title conversation.
