Conor McGregor is a superstar, and a lot of that comes from the fact he is a great self-promoter. Sometimes, Conor takes it too far, and this time around, Conor McGregor’s recent Twitter attack on Khabib Nurmagomedov’s late father did not sit well with former UFC champ Daniel Cormier.
On Monday, Conor McGregor posted a message on Twitter that appeared to be aimed towards Nurmagomedov’s father, who passed away this past July after testing positive for COVID-19. The tweet, now-deleted, read, “Covid is good, and father is evil?”
Daniel Cormier, a friend of Khabib’s, took exception to Conor’s tactics.
“After the fight with Dustin Poirier, a lot of people questioned whether or not Conor McGregor was reaching to try to get in the head of Dustin Poirier,” Cormier said on his ESPN show “DC & RC.” “(To) Reach back to a time where he had a trash talk that could affect people. It didn’t seem to work against Poirier, and I feel like from him talking about Dustin’s wife to now Khabib’s father, he is just taking it way too far.”
“When you’re dealing with death and covid and all these other things that we’ve dealt with over the last year and a half, that’s all off-limits,” Cormier said. “I get shock value, and I get trying to get people to talk but way too far. To the point that I immediately called Khabib last night and said, ‘Are you OK?’
Conor McGregor is the king of trash talking and selling out PPVs. He was paid over $3M just to show up to fight Dustin Poirier. But did he take it too far with his recent antics?
