I am aware of the recent social media exchange between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor. The ongoing situation has escalated to a level that is unacceptable. As such, we are taking the necessary steps to reach out to both athlete camps and this situation is being addressed by all parties internally.
This possibly might have prompted Conor McGregor to post a tweet, which possibly could be very cryptic but surely did not include any apology for his actions.
I want to move forward, with my fans of all faiths and all backgrounds.
All faiths challenge us to be our best selves.
It is one world and one for all ❤️
Now see you in the Octagon.

He ended the tweet with "Now see you in the Octagon". This could be construed as either he will face Khabib Nurmagomedov in the Octagon or will watch him fight someone else in the Octagon if you think about it.
Fans on Twitter did not know how to quite take this as well. As many have previously predicted, that the retirement he announced last week, might just be another one of his publicity stunts as we pointed out here.

Nah Conor. You said what you said, those were your true feelings. You can't take that shit back and attempt a poor ass apology just because you got called out for your anti-cultural, hateful, disgusting views. #bitchass

This tweet is almost as bad as that motivational hockey speech he gave.
