CONOR McGREGOR tweeted 'don't forget' that Khabib Nurmagomedov has 'zero power' as he listed his rival's knockout record.
McGregor was beaten by Nurmagomedov in 2018 which only fuelled, not resolved, their feud.
But the Irishman has been hit with a blow in his quest for revenge after UFC president Dana White officially confirmed Khabib's retirement.
McGregor sent him a congratulatory retirement post, which included a few subtle digs.
But his follow up tweet was not so thinly veiled as he mocked Khabib's lack of KOs, with only eight in his 29 wins.
McGregor, 32, tweeted: "8 ko/tko across 30 fights = zero power. Don’t forget it teddy bear."
After Khabib's retirement, The Notorious claimed he was the ‘155lb world champion’ and called on the UFC to 'book' his title fight.
McGregor had hoped to rematch Nurmagomedov, 32, this year, but after he was beaten in January by Dustin Poirier, 32, those plans collapsed.
He is now set for a trilogy bout with Poirier – having won the initial fight in 2014 – in the summer, possibly July.
Meanwhile Michael Chandler, 34, set to headline UFC 262 against Charles Oliveira, 31, for the vacant crown.
Nurmagomedov announced his retirement in October after beating Justin Gaethje, also 32, at UFC 254.
It was his first fight after losing his influential father and coach Abdulmanap, who passed away aged 57 in July.
With Khabib one win away from achieving his dream of 30-0, White tried to tempt him into one final fight.
But after five months of talks, the promoter announced Nurmagomedov would fight no more and as a result vacate his lightweight title.
