26 Memes for Anyone Who's Happy Conor Mcgregor Lost to Khabib

By Mustafa Gatollari

Conor McGregor's not just the biggest name in Mixed Martial Arts, he's also one of the biggest star athletes in the world, and that fame has been propelled by his epic smack talk and ability to sell a fight. Any pugilist who has a scrap with McGregor can enjoy a hefty paycheck, along with an out-of-control build up to said fight.

The brash Irishman treated his lightweight fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov no different, and even got himself arrested for attacking a bus with a posse the Dagestani fighter was sitting in in retaliation for Khabib's team accosting his friend and training partner Artem Lobov in a hotel lobby.

And while there was a point in time the two men were on friendly terms and even discussed training together, it was clear that the two camps seriously hated each other leading up to their huge bout at UFC 229. In case anyone thought it was all drummed up to sell fight tickets, that notion clearly went out the window when Khabib, after submitting McGregor in the fourth round of their fight, jumped out of the cage to fight Conor's entire team after they were still talking smack following the Dagestani fighter's victory.

All of the drama left the fight as one of the most talked about scraps in sports history, and left the internet with tons of memes relishing in the fact that Conor talked a huge game, but ended up losing big-time.

1. There were the Drake memes.
