Conor McGregor recently shared his thoughts on Umar Nurmagomedov's withdrawal from the scheduled bout against Cory Sandhagen, and it's no secret that McGregor isn't a fan of fighters pulling out of fights. Despite facing a series of injuries leading up to his own bouts, McGregor has always pushed forward and competed, citing examples like Chad Mendes, Khabib Nurmagomedov, and Dustin Poirier.
During his intense rivalry with Khabib Nurmagomedov, McGregor consistently highlighted Khabib's history of pulling out of fights. Now, with Umar Nurmagomedov also forced to withdraw due to a shoulder injury during training, McGregor took the opportunity to throw shade at the Nurmagomedov family once again in a since-deleted tweet, saying, "Runs in the family."
It appears that there's an enduring animosity between Conor McGregor and the Nurmagomedovs, with McGregor repeatedly targeting them both verbally and physically in the past.
Looking ahead to McGregor's future, the most likely opponent close to Khabib would be Islam Makhachev. However, before that potential matchup, McGregor must first overcome the challenge of Michael Chandler, whenever that fight may happen.
Regardless of whether McGregor competes at lightweight or welterweight, fans eagerly anticipate his return to the Octagon. They are keen to see the Irish fighter back in action, no matter the weight class, as he continues to captivate audiences with his fighting style and persona.
