Mixed martial artist Khabib Nurmagomedov called out the UFC in an Instagram post following his post-fight debacle with Conor McGregor at UFC 229.

In the post, Khabib questioned the UFC’s response to McGregor’s attack on his tour bus in April, where the fighter threw a trash can and a metal dolly at the vehicle along with a group of his teammates.

“Why didn’t you fire anyone when their team attacked the bus and injured a couple of people?” Khabib wrote. “…Why do you have to punish my team, when both teams fought? If you say that I started it, then I do not agree. I finished what he had started.”

Khabib then threatened to quit the organization if his teammate, mixed martial artist Zubaira Tukhugov, is fired. Tukhugov climbed over the octagon during the brawl that ensued after McGregor and Khabib’s fight, engaging in a brief altercation with McGregor that was caught on live television.

“In any case, punish me, [Zubaira] has nothing to do with that,” he continued. “…if you decide to fire him, you should know that you’ll lose me, too.”

I would like to address @ufc Why didn't you fire anyone when their team attacked the bus and injured a couple of people? They could have killed someone there, why no one says anything about insulting my homeland, religion, nation, family? Why do you have to punish my team, when both teams fought. If you say that I started it, then I do not agree, I finished what he had started. In any case, punish me, @zubairatukhugov has nothing to do with that. If you think that I’ll keep silent then you are mistaken. You canceled Zubaira’s fight and you want to dismiss him just because he hit Conor. But don’t forget that it was Conor who had hit my another Brother FIRST, just check the video. if you decide to fire him, you should know that you’ll lose me too. We never give up on our brothers in Russia and I will go to the end for my Brother. If you still decide to fire him, don’t forget to send me my broken contract, otherwise I'll break it myself. And one more thing, you can keep my money that you are withholding. You are pretty busy with that, I hope it won’t get stuck in your throat. We have defended our honor and this is the most important thing. We intend to go to the end. #Brothers

Khabib likewise challenged the organization to keep his pay from the event, citing upholding his honor as being more important than receiving a paycheck. “And one more thing, you can keep my money that you are withholding,” he stated. “You are pretty busy with that. I hope it won’t get stuck in your throat.”

Tukhugov’s upcoming fight with Artem Lobov has since been canceled, and both McGregor and Khabib are facing an ongoing suspension due to the crowd-wide fight that erupted after their match on October 6.

KSI starts hilarious “beef” with Minecraft star TommyInnit

YouTube star-turned-boxer KSI has struck up yet another humorous “feud” with the uber-popular Minecraft influencer TommyInnit — leading to a completely hilarious and unexpected response from the gamer.

When it comes to fandom feuds, most bystanders know better than to get involved… but when content creators themselves declare war against each other, it’s almost impossible for viewers to not take an interest.

This time around, British rapper and influencer KSI has taken some shots at TommyInnit — all for the jokes, of course. While the two have “duked it out” on social media before (all for the lulz), this time, a slew of other high-profile names are getting involved in a chuckle-worthy social media showdown.

On February 24, KSI stirred the pot with a tweet that caught the attention of Minecraft fans all over the app: “Sidemen fanbase > Minecraft fanbase.”

A short while later, the commotion caught the attention of none other than MrBeast, who replied: “Anyone else waiting with popcorn for TommyInnit to reply?”

It wasn’t long before the British Minecraft star chimed in on the situation with a series of responses that left the internet in stitches.

“Mr Beast,” he began “I don’t do drama Mr Beast. I just tell people who are wrong why they’re wrong, and why they’re f***ing stupid. KSI is almost always wrong. He’s never been right. He just sits there dissing people in his ivory tower, meanwhile I’m sat here on Reddit studying algorithm. F*** him.”

However, it was Tommy’s next response that took the joke even further, with the YouTuber poking fun at his own viewers: “Tommy fanbase is a bunch of 12 year old girls who fangirl over him. Same for Carl and Dream, and Sidemen fanbase who can handle jokes.”

The Minecrafter then jokingly asked his fans to ratio KSI’s Tweet — a request that fellow Minecraft personality Quackity graciously agreed to, writing: “I just think it’s funny when old people get less likes. Signal boosted.”

While this is far from the first time KSI has effectively “stirred the pot” with the Minecraft fandom, their “feud” is no more than playful banter and humorous jokes — which are currently giving their respective fanbases a hilarious interaction that has some calling for a diss track.
