Conor McGregor may have once again crossed the line with his trash talk in a now-deleted tweet.
On Tuesday morning, McGregor tweeted out “Covid is good, father is evil” which many believe is a shot at Khabib Nurmagomedov’s dead father.
The tweet in question appears to be a reference to Nurmagomedov’s Twitter post from last month when the retired UFC fighter congratulated Dustin Poirier for beating McGregor at UFC 264.
Good always defeats evil.
Very happy for @DustinPoirier I hope you will get the belt end of the year

Khabib’s father Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov died last July after testing positive for COVID-19 and then suffering a heart attack at 57 years of age.
Fans were appalled at McGregor’s tweet.
Here’s Conor McGregor continuing to disrespect Khabib’s father, who died last year due to complications fighting covid. Dude stays talking about family then getting his ass beat. pic.twitter.com/OjncBBDSRm

not sure what I would have thought if 5 years ago if you told me that the only way Conor McGregor would stay relevant in 2021 is by tweeting about Khabib's dead father. https://t.co/OouK355Uyv

I can't rock with Conor McGregor anymore. Been a fan for years but making fun of Khabib's dead father is way too far.

Never been a fan of McGregor’s antics; the respect aspect of martial arts has always been important to me. I enjoyed watching him fight strictly because of his fighting style. After this tweet about Khabib’s late father, I hope I never have to see that scumbag again.
