The former UFC star continued his rivalry over social media but had to delete a tweet about the Russian’s wife after going too far.

Remember when people tried to argue that Conor McGregor isn't racist and the things he said were just "banter". pic.twitter.com/pc017RD9dZ

Why did you delete your racist tweet ?

McGregor's trash talk has been racist for a decade.

Absolutely disgusting. The fact that he has always been racist towards nurmagomedov and has never been reprimanded for it is astounding and Vile from Dana and the UFC.
It's not promoting anything but hatred and turning racism into a joke. I have lost all respect for mcgregor. https://t.co/S61Sq74vo3

As an Irishman, my default setting is to support any Irish competitors in any endeavor. We're a small country with an us against the world fighting spirit. But McGregor's racist, homophobic bullshit is a black eye on what being Irish is.

About McGregor's tweet (which he since deleted) calling Khabib's wife a "towel". He clearly has enough money to pay someone to explain to him how an insult may be harmless in one culture and be UNBELIEVABLY offensive in another. 😑 @UFC

Don’t be scared of the rematch you little scurrying rat.
You will do what you are told like you always do.
