‘Forever a failure’: Conor McGregor mocks Khabib’s cousin Abubakar Nurmagomedov after submission defeat at UFC Moscow


Unsurprisingly, Irish UFC star Conor McGregor needed little encouragement to mock Khabib Nurmagomedov’s cousin Abubakar after he fell to a first-round submission defeat on his UFC debut in Moscow, calling him a “failure”.

'Forever a failure': Conor McGregor mocks Khabib's cousin Abubakar Nurmagomedov after submission defeat at UFC Moscow

Nurmagomedov took on gritty German and KSW veteran David Zawada in a preliminary card bout at UFC Moscow.

And although he appeared to make a solid start to the contest, it was Zawada whose grappling acumen produced a surprise result as he locked up a triangle armbar, then released the arm and tightened the triangle choke. It left Abubakar trapped and left with no alternative but to tap out a submission.

But the nature of the tap, which saw Abubakar tap Zawada on the forehead, led to a mocking response on Twitter by McGregor, who gleefully tweeted his response to the fight’s conclusion.

“Nurmagotaptap,” he tweeted as he launched into a handful of reactionary tweets following the fight.

And, after calling the team “s**tebags”, McGregor then went on to mock Abubakar, tweeting: “He tapped his forehead. If you can tap his forehead. You can punch his forehead. He quit. 1 quitter exposed. Abubakar Nurmagotaptap. Forever a failure.”
