Islam Makhachev became the new UFC lightweight champion on Saturday night at UFC 280 with a second-round submission victory over Charles Oliveira via arm-triangle choke. The Russian was commended by many for his brilliant display. However, Conor McGregor wasn’t impressed by Makhachev’s display.

In a series of now-deleted tweets, he wrote:“Nice fight. nice performance. I have built all the tools to beat this style now Vs b4. Experience Vs. Face breaking shots from clinch and baby brain batter shots from bottom. And the rest of my repertoire yous know. Steel left leg. Cannon back hand. Wrist control.

“The thought of shutting down this system of fighting with my own developed system is quite intriguing to me. Whoever of them against. It’s not personal. It’s a skill evaluation and a fight. Even thru generations. The imaafs, amateurs. A war of attrition. To the box.

“I have the system to hurt this style of fighting guys I am telling you. Bro is a s*** jocks. Fat mouth shut your mouth you done nothing tonight except go against fathers wishes and run. It’s not fathers plan completed yet, pal. You know. Your people know and they talk about you.”

Makhachev’s manager Ali Abdelaziz, responded: “You are low life s*** stop talking about people family you need a face slap soon nobody cares about you.”

McGregor replied: “Relax ye little tick I’m twice the size of you. I’ll squash your head. It’s truth and you know it, get your man to print it. Print print print s*** s***. One stays printing one stays s***ing, who’s who?”
