Chimaev and Conor in curious Twitter exchange
Former BRAVE CF contender and UFC newcomer of the year Khamzat "Borz" Chimaev recently detailed a trip to Ireland he took in 2018 to beat up Conor McGregor for disparaging remarks "The Notorious" had made about Chechens and Khabib Nurmagomedov's faith and family. That story being told apparently set up this exchange between the two on the social network.
Beg me. https://t.co/s9Um6EuEIL— Khamzat Chimaev (@KChimaev) July 30, 2020
I accept!— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) July 30, 2020
There is no way on gods green earth that Conor is fighting Khazmat— Funky (@Benaskren) July 30, 2020
What fights besides Nate or Jorge make sense for Conor??— Funky (@Benaskren) July 30, 2020
I’m getting bored, please @danawhite give me @NateDiaz209 @GamebredFighter @TheNotoriousMMA same night. I can smash all these guys... I’m not cocky guy I’m just confident. I understand if they don’t want to fight me.— Khamzat Chimaev (@KChimaev) July 30, 2020
Update: Conor says that's not what he meant, but provided no further details.
Spoke to @TheNotoriousMMA briefly today. He confirmed that his 'I accept' tweet was not about Khamzat Chimaev, despite what was said earlier today. He declined to further elaborate what it was actually referring to, though.— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) July 31, 2020
And then he tweeted "I accept" in Tagalog, presumably a reference to Manny Pacquiao.
