‘Who should like him for a comment like that? How many people do you know, lost their family, lost their business, lost everything because of COVID, and you make fun of it?’ he said.
‘You say Covid good, father evil? Are you kidding me? So you’re saying to all those poor people that lost their family, lost their business, people that committed suicide over this tragedy that’s happened to the whole world, and you think you’re making a mockery of it by trying attack someone’s father by using that?
‘You’re an idiot. You are an idiot. … It’s just another knife to dig in people’s hearts. He’s an idiot. He’s flat out an idiot and he’s out of control. I’m sorry.
‘And this has nothing to do with Khabib’s father. This has nothing to do with those comments on COVID. We already know what he thinks on Khabib. That’s fine.
‘But you make a comment like that, all the money in the world isn’t going to allow you to get away with some of the stupid things you say.’

Khabib and McGregor have been long-term UFC rivals, with the Dagestani coming out on top in their only encounter in the octagon back in October 2018.
UFC president Dana White confirmed that Khabib will not come out of retirement despite a heap of efforts for him to return.
Meanwhile, McGregor is currently recovering from a broken leg having sustained the injury against Dustin Poirier last month – his second loss to the American this year.
