UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis and rising star Khabib Nurmagomedov had a twitter beef.

Moments after submitting Rustam Khabilov, Ben Henderson took a slight dig at Anthony Pettis at the post-fight interview, referencing the champion's numerous injuries leading to the belt not being defended since August of last year.

Moments after though, yet another lightweight contender took a few jabs at the often inactive champion:

The following tweet has since been deleted, but Pettis had this to reply earlier:

"@TeamKhabib @ufc @danawhite @lorenzofertitta car cost more than your house so it's pretty good pay homie. See u soon!"
