‘The Wall of Non-Fame’ – Conor McGregor reacts to Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Hall of Fame induction ahead of UFC 276

UFC superstar Conor McGregor has taken aim at Khabib Nuramgomedov in a bizarre series of social media posts after his biggest rival was inducted into the Hall of Fame last weekend.

Nurmagomedov and longtime teammate Daniel Cormier were honored ahead of UFC 276 in Las Vegas, and “Notorious” thought about his future induction.

The 33-year-old believes the fact that he has multiple UFC records for his 13-second knockout of Jose Aldo, his hefty win over Eddie Alvarez and being one of two men to record wins by knockout in three weight classes, means he is certain to enter the Hall of Fame down the line.

“Awaiting my own Hall of Fame entry all the same, I’m a shoe,” he wrote. ” First of all. All records. KO speed. Reversed amount. Most knockout splits. Financial. You name it. No rush but I’m always ready to open my nose and put it [opponents] unconscious. A real amateur,” he added.

The former two-weight champ followed that post up with another about Hall of Fame relevance because he’s not in it.

He also treated fans to his rendition of “Gangster’s Paradise” – a song by rap legend Coolio who recently visited Dublin’s Irish pub.

“Who [has] the levels and flow I have. Nobody who it is. The wall of not-fame, you can call it ’til I bounce and throw it. Coolio in the gaf they call me,” McGregor tweeted.

While it’s already obvious who pissed him off about the Hall of Fame, McGregor confirmed it was Nurmagomedov when he posted a photo of their post-fight brawl at UFC 229.

“[Bag] de s**** out of them all. Put that in the hall of fame,” he captioned the post.

‘Notorious’ thinks his UFC 229 post-fight brawl should be in the Hall of Fame


McGregor and Nurmagomedov shared the most bitter rivalry in UFC history.

Things turned sour when Khabib was filmed slapping McGregor’s friend Artem Lobov in 2018, with the UFC legend flying to Brooklyn from Ireland in revenge.

‘Mystic Mac’ and his entourage reunited attacking the bus Nurmagomedov was on, which also contained other passengers, including UFC fighters Rose Namajunas and Michael Chiesa, who both suffered mental and physical trauma as a result of the incident.

McGregor was then arrested, but just six months later the duo fought at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and Khabib choked out his rival before jumping the cage then attacking his entourage outside , sparking a mass brawl.

Both men were hit with hefty fines and bans following the incident and the beef continues to rumble even though Nurmagomedov is retired and McGregor is one of the richest people in the sport.

In 2021, he topped Forbes’ list of wealthy athletes after earning $180 million in a year, more than sports superstars such as Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and LeBron James.
