Conor McGregor is back to tweeting and deleting ugly comments again.

After directing similarly tasteless remarks towards Dustin Poirier’s family, this time, the still injured fighter targeted his recent brand of uncreative and uninteresting “trash talk” towards yet another fighter who dominated him. McGregor threw vile insults at Khabib Nurmagomedov, his wife, his manager, and even his countrymen, before shortly deleting the tweets.

MMA Mania has the screenshots where McGregor called Khabib a “smelly inbred” with a “cousin wife.”

McGregor also previously made classless remarks about Khabib’s dead father, and Islamophobic comments towards his wife. These latest insults prompted the Dagestani’s manager to respond, then McGregor just decided to attack him, saying “I hate you bro. When you die I celebrate.”

McGregor tirade didn’t stop there. He even directed some vitriol towards a random female fan, who brought up the Irishman’s previous allegations and investigations about rape and sexual assault.

Some tried to excuse McGregor’s behavior as “selling fights,” while others speculated that the anger and erratic behavior might just be the painkillers making him go “out of his mind.”

None of his recent outbursts on retired fighters, commentators, or even random celebrities had anything to do with future fights though, nor does that explain his many arrests and issues outside the Octagon even before his latest injury.

McGregor, now 33, has lost by stoppage in three of his last four bouts, and has just one win in almost five years.
