Conor is known for dominating his opponent both verbally and then destroying him inside the Octagon and UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov isn't generally a talking type.
At the pressers, we even saw Khabib reacting to Conor's talk, hence we came to know that Khabib has a certain linguistic problem but he can match Conor's talks with facts. At today's open work out, Khabib took a shot at McGregor between all the ongoing booing.
After a quick workout, Khabib grabbed the mic and fired shots at the Irish people and Conor McGregor. He at first repeated the same question that he asked Conor at the UFC 229's pressers and raised questions about the Gaelic language which isn't much in the use after Ireland’s ties to England. Khabib even talked about Conor’s grandfather and said that Christofer McGregor was an English English navy who killed Irish people, the video was tweeted by the ESPN reporter Ariel Helwani, have a look:

Khabib in the open workout session said:
“In three days, you’re gonna like me. You’re gonna like me in three days. I have a question for Ireland. What about your language? What about the Irish language? Where is your language right now? What’s wrong with your language? “You guys change it? What about your language? Please someone can give me an answer?
You guys with England right now? “This guy talks about fighting against English but his grandfather, Christopher McGregor was with the English navy. And he killed your people. And now you guys support him. I’m gonna change this Saturday night.”
