Khabib Nurmagomedov has labelled Conor McGregor an ‘old prostitute’ after the Irishman tried to gatecrash the Russian’s interview.
Nurmagomedov was being interviewed by an ESPN reporter on Instagram and McGregor sent a request to be in the video.
To which Nurmagomedov responded: ‘You know what I feel? He looks like an old prostitute who wants attention.

‘Like old prostitute that wants attention, his time is done.’
McGregor has accused bitter rival Nurmagomedov of ‘chickening out’ of his UFC lightweight title defence against Tony Ferguson later this month.
Nurmagomedov announced on Wednesday evening that he was back in his native Dagestan and ruled out the prospect of breaking the coronavirus quarantine to compete at UFC 249 on April 18 at a venue still to be decided.
UFC president Dana White has been at pains to insist the show will go ahead despite the global pandemic which has forced the event to be moved away from Brooklyn because of the partial US crackdown on the spread of the virus.
McGregor referenced the bizarre history of Nurmagomedov-Ferguson, with the two yet to meet in the octagon despite being booked to fight on five separate occasions since December 2015.
The previous four cancellations have been because of health or fitness concerns but McGregor, who had been linked with a fight against the winner, had no doubt who was to blame for the latest postponement.
‘The fact of this matter is, both Tony and Khabib where engaged in a game of chicken here towards the fight bell,’ McGregor wrote on Twitter.
‘With Khabib chickening out first. Making it 3-2 in pullouts in Tony’s favour. Khab scurried out of the US to home, and amid the crisis. Very high risk. Congrats Tony.’
The Irishman returned to the UFC in January by impressively stopping American veteran Donald Cerrone in his first bout since losing to Nurmagomedov in October 2018.
