    The day before, former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor published his list of most outstanding fighters in world history, placing himself in second place.

    Russian MMA fighter Khabib Nurmagamedov has sarcastically named the greatest UFC fighter in the history of Twitter - his nemesis, Irishman Conor McGregor.

    The apparent jab came as a response to a recent list of greatest fighters compiled by McGregor, who put himself in second place after Brazilian MMA fighter Anderson Silva, while former Canadian fighter Georges St-Pierre came in third.

    Two years ago, McGregor lost to Khabib in the fourth round of the UFC 229 event by submission. Since then, the two fighters don't miss a chance to exchange barbs on social media.

    Khabib is the current UFC lightweight champion with 28 victories out of 28 fights in his list. McGregor, a former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion, held the same titles in Cage Warriors.
