UFC's Khabib Rips Conor McGregor: 'We Don't Pay Attention to Idiots'

UFC's Khabib Rips Conor McGregor: 'We Don't Pay Attention to Idiots'

UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov called rival Conor McGregor an "idiot" during an appearance Wednesday in Russia.

Nurmagomedov, who defeated McGregor by submission in October 2018, was asked during a Q&A session with school kids whether he'd accept a rematch in Moscow and said he thinks that offer was a bluff from the Irish superstar, per RT Sport.

McGregor raised the idea of a rematch in the Russian capital after Nurmagomedov moved his career record to 28-0 with a submission victory over Dustin Poirier in September:

"He tapped his forehead," McGregor wrote in a series of Twitter posts that were later deleted.

Several outside-the-cage issues and a brief foray into the world of boxing to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. have brought his UFC career to a virtual halt.
