CONOR MCGREGOR has offered his thanks to UFC fighter Khamzat Chimaev for offering to "beat up" long term rival Khabib Nurmagomedov.
McGregor has had back and forths with Nurmagomedov which ended up in a historic bout at UFC 229 in 2018. The Crumlin native submitted to his rival, which started a brawl between the two camps.
Yesterday, Chimaev tweeted to McGregor:
"Let’s make a big drama show," along with a picture of the two fighters.
In response McGregor posted on Twitter, but has since deleted, said
"Bratha, no problem. I appreciate you reaching out to the team in 2018 to come and help me beat up the little scared pigeon b****.
"Chechnya knows! F**k those eagles MMA pu*****We are Akhmat MMA! Smash them up we will! Let’s go! The Mac and Akhmat! We take no s***! Never peace."
McGregor then added context to Chimaev offering to help the Dubliner's sparring partner Artem Lobov who was "attacked" by Nurmagomedov with his friend Islam.

McGregor fired a steel trolley through the bus window that Nurmagomedov was in at the Barclays Center after UFC 223 took place.
McGregor has still taunted him to this present day, included jibes at his late father.
Nurmagomedov continues to voice his distance for the Irishman even after his retirement.
Chimaev could fight McGregor if the Dubliner returns to the UFC and the welterweight division.
After getting over coronavirus, Chimaev returns to the cage last weekend when he defeated Li Jingliang at UFC 267.
McGregor has been touted to return to on his comeback from a broken leg injury, Chimaev is now ranked 10th in the 170lb division.
