Never one to be shut down, McGregor decided to answer in Russian as well, he wrote, “See you in Moscow, pu**y.” That is when the feud took a personal turn, Nurmagomedov targeted the sexual assault allegations toward McGregor. The allegations have been rumored but because of the privacy laws involving rape and sexual assault cases in Ireland, McGregor has not been officially named publically.

McGregor has been vocally campaigning for another fight with Nurmagomedov for months. White and Nurmagomdeov do not seem to think McGregor is next in line and have expressed their feelings that Tony Ferguson is the rightful No. 1 contender.

Prior to this online exchange, it had seemed that McGregor was looking forward and targeting a new opponent, Frankie Edgar. McGregor mentioned Edgar in his recent ESPN interview and began to talk about a date set for the fight on social media. Despite him calling for the matchup with Edgar in December, White has also denied that fight is in the works.

It is unknown when McGregor will return to the Octagon, especially in the rumors of assault come out as true. McGregor has had numerous run-ins with the law in the last two years and has only fought once.
