Khabib Nurmagomedov has wasted little time in wading into Conor McGregor's row with Dustin Poirier.
McGregor and Poirier took to social media to air their dirty laundry yesterday in a furious argument over the Irishman's failure to follow through with a promised $500,000 donation.
McGregor had vowed to make the payment to Poirier's charity in order to fund a gym through The Good Fight Foundation but has so far failed to stump up.
Poirier called his rival out with McGregor claiming he was waiting for a detailed breakdown of how the money would be spend before releasing the funds.
And Nurmagomedov, who choked out both men before announcing his retirement last year, waded in, posting a short video clip in response.
The film shows a group of men talking with one saying, "Did I give you all a word? I'm taking it back".
McGregor later ramped up his rhetoric by claiming he was pulling out of his trilogy fight with Poirier which is scheduled for July 10.
In an x-rated post, he said: "You’re ripped you inbred hillbilly. Why do you wink with your ears? You f****** brain dead hillbilly. 500k with no plan in place. Ye hang tight. Fool. You must be new to money. The fight is off btw. I’m going to fight someone else on the 10th. Good luck on your old contract kid.
"My team does their due diligence to make sure every donation meets the mark. My generosity is known. You will pay with your brain for this attempt at smearing my name. Shooting ass shelling ass b****. Little b**** kicks from a shell. Good luck when you’re caught. You’re f*****."

McGregor's attitude to Poirier was in stark contrast to the build-up to their second fight in January.
The respect on show included McGregor's promised donation and continued after the Dubliner was stopped in the second round.
But several weeks later he claimed there would be "no more Mr Nice Guy" as he prepared for the third installment.
Yesterday's antics suggest this time at least he was true to his word.
