Khabib Nurmagomedov taunts UFC rival Conor McGregor with 'good always defeats evil' tweet after shock trilogy fight loss
CONOR MCGREGOR was taunted by old UFC rival Khabib Nurmagomedov after his trilogy loss to Dustin Poirier.
The Irishman suffered a sickening leg injury in the first-round of their third bout, and it was called off.

But retired Khabib was quick to mock his bitter nemesis, and praised Poirier after his win.
He said: "Good always defeats evil. Very happy for @DustinPoirier.
"I hope you will get the belt end of the year."
There is no love lost between Khabib and McGregor after a bitter feud dating back to their fight.

One said: "McGregor is a poor role model for the sport.
"What he doesn't understand is as soon as he gets personal he ends up losing. Happened with khabib and now with Dustin. It is good verses evil.
"There are more hungry lions waiting for the throne. McGregor is not what he used to be."
