The latest round of the continuing drama between Conor McGregor and the Nurmagomedov camp is here. The former two-division champion didn’t hold back in voicing his opinions on Usman Nurmagomedov’s recent failed drug test. McGregor, known for his uncensored criticism, rushed to Twitter after the news surfaced to slam Nurmagomedov’s team.

McGregor’s tweet illustrates his eagerness to criticize them publicly due to the unsolved beef. His loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov still seeps into McGregor every moment and fuels the fire to continue the rivalry between him and the Nurmagomedov team. This is what he had posted:

Steroids are HARAM! The shame of Allah hangs over the nurmagomedov clan. Cheaters! Abdulmanap is doing tumbles in his grave.

Usman Nurmagomedov was suspended for six months after failing a drug test. His recent victory over Brent Primus will be reversed to a no-contest. He will also exit from Bellator’s ongoing lightweight grand prix. Despite these implications, manager Ali Abdelaziz stated that the lightweight champion would not lose his championship. He claimed that the failed drug test was a result of prescribed medicine rather than intentional foul play.

As the drama between McGregor and Nurmagomedov’s team continues outside the cage, fans wonder if and when these long-standing hostilities will appear in future fights. McGregor’s unwavering comments and the Nurmagomedov camp’s steadfast defense of the charges set the stage for yet another chapter in the continuing conflict between McGregor and the Dagestani fighters.
