Speaking on Mike Tyson’s Hotboxin’ podcast, Nurmagomedov shared his thoughts on the matter.
“When he talked about this, only evil can talk about your father, like wife, kids, religion. If you’re a normal human, you’re never going to talk about this stuff,” Nurmagomedov said. “For me, I think he posted this tweet [when he] drunk too much or [did] something. He always delete these tweets. When he become normal, [he checked his phone] and said, ‘Oh, what I did.’ Then he delete. This is my opinion, what he does all the time.”
Nurmagomedov added that McGregor’s comments about his late father goes to show McGregor’s true colors.
“When someone is not with us, he is not even alive, this shows you what you have inside,” Nurmagomedov said. “This shows, like, how dirty you are.”
