Three months after arguably the biggest UFC fight in history took place, nothing has been settled after the huge brawl that followed Khabib Nurmagmedov's submission victory against Conor McGregor.

A hearing was supposed to take place on December 11, but was postponed after the NSAC chairman stated negotiations with Nurmagomedov's lawyers would continue in the hope that a public hearing would not be needed.

In his spell of competitive inactivity though McGregor's always heating up his rivalries on social media, and he's decided to try and take on two of his enemies at one time now.

McGregor has targeted Khabib once again and also former pro boxer Paulie Malignaggi, who was knocked to the mat by 'Notorious' in a sparring session which has been well-documented. 

That led to a confrontation between the pair in August of 2017 in Las Vegas, and there's been bad blood between the pair ever since.

Rumours have swirled this week that the two are set to fight in a boxing ring in the near future, but Malignaggi has dismissed the speculation, stating that he expected it was McGregor's team that probably started the rumours.

Conor McGregor has fired shots on Instagram at both Khabib Nurmagomedov and Paulie Malignaggi.

McGregor has now fired back with a post on Instagram to Malignaggi and the Russian who defeated him back in October.

In a lengthy rant, McGregor posted: "Let the record show. I like Paulie Malinaggi.
Here is a confrontation between us regarding a picture he was upset about.
Yes you heard that right.
A picture.
I told him here to his face. “Don’t be b****ing.” Common knowledge I would think for a fighting man.
Don’t be a bitch, bitching.
The same thing I said to Khabib at the end of round 3. My round.
Don’t be b****ing!
Every single round b****ing to the referee.
He was even b****ing in the fourth round from mount position.
It baffled me.
If anyone should have been saying anything to the referee, it should have been me in that 1st round. That round he held onto my legs for four minutes straight. With zero activity.
But a fight is a fight who gives a f**k. Crying to the referee like a proper b***h.
I was trying to dig my fingers into his Adams Apple.
Many individuals in the fight business, I have learned lately, are absolute b*****s.
I know you’s are broke boys. But don’t be broke b*****s."

McGregor knows how to wind people up; he's made a whole career off being a master at it - and we will have to wait and see if Khabib or Paulie fire back.

Former boxer Paulie Malignaggi has come into Conor McGregor's crosshairs once again after their public spat in 2017.

But if there really is no talks to fight 'Magic Man' Malignaggi, then it looks like Conor is trying to hype up a potential second fight between himself and the UFC Lightweight champion.

That's still the money fight for the company even though McGregor was comprehensively beaten, but settlements from the first bout still need to be made before we even talk about such things.
