Khabib had a simple, but effective response to McGregor.

Immediately after his 40-second win over Donald Cerrone, Conor McGregor took to the mic about getting (T)KO’s in three different divisions, saying he’s made history again, and set “another record.”

Whether or not McGregor is actually the first in UFC history to achieve this (it really depends on what he actually meant), it was still a pretty remarkable feat. His rival in Khabib Nurmagomedov though, didn’t seem all that impressed.

The UFC lightweight champion took to social media for a simple, yet pretty effective burn.

No lengthy caption or smack talk, Khabib’s response is just laying out three pictures where McGregor had been submitted in the same three divisions.

The photos show Nate Diaz choking him out at welterweight in 2016, Khabib doing same at lightweight in 2018, and Joe Duffy beating him at featherweight with an arm triangle in 2010.
