Conor McGregor is heating things up – ahead of his fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The UFC champion has been laying low, as he trains for his highly anticipated return to the Octagon, but returned to social media to hit out at Khabib Nurmagomedov – and his father.

The Dublin native took to Instagram to call Khabib, who he’s fighting on October 6th in Vegas, a “coward”.

Sharing a photo from the infamous bus attack in New York, where Conor and fighter pal Cian Cowley threw items at the bus carrying Khabib and his team, Conor said “I see you”.

@abdulmanap.nurmagomedov I can see you. Cowering behind fake respect. Just like your middle child. A quivering coward.

“@abdulmanap.nurmagomedov I can see you.  Cowering behind fake respect. Just like your middle child. A quivering coward,” he wrote.

It comes after Abdulmanap had publicly claimed his son Khabib would defeat Conor when they come face to face in October.
