UFC superstar Conor McGregor's long-time rivalry with Khabib Nurmagomedov remains fierce to this day. The Irishman recently took another shot at Khabib Nurmagomedov on Twitter.

'The Notorious' posted an image poking fun at the Dagestani wrestler, demeaning him for his controversial remarks on UFC ring girls he made during a press conference earlier this month.

Conor McGregor mentioned Arianny Celeste and Brittney Palmer in the image, one of the most popular ring girls of the UFC. Celeste has been with the UFC since 2006.

Nurmagomedov commented that ring girls are insignificant to the UFC and combat sports as they're not useful in any way.

'The Eagle' originally spoke in Russian, but the interview was subsequently translated to English by Twitter user '@manny_mma_.'

“Ring girls are the most unnecessary people in mma, what function to they bring? You turn on the tv and you see it’s the second, why are they walking there,” exclaimed Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Conor McGregor also fired shots at Khabib Nurmagomedov's teammates

Replying to his fans on social media, like he often does, Conor McGregor had a few words referring to Khabib Nurmagomedov's teammates, Abubakar Nurmagomedov and Zubaira Tukhugov.

Reacting to the post-fight melee at UFC 229 where the Irishman faced Nurmagomedov, McGregor remembered the brawl in which he was attacked by Tukhugov and Abubakar Nurmagomedov. Though outnumbered by Khabib's team, he was timely and successful in landing punches on Tukhugov and Abubakar Nurmagomedov.

In the clip below, McGregor is seen landing a left hand on Zubaira Tukhugov, who competes in the UFC featherweight division.

"Fell into me for a hug he did. The usual out of them." - Conor McGregor on Tukhugov.

Conor McGregor is currently recovering from the injury he suffered against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264's main event and is eyeing a return to the octagon sometime in 2022.
