Conor McGregor mocked as Khabib Nurmagomedov reaction to Jose Aldo KO emerges
Conor McGregor was rinsed by UFC fans as rival Khabib Nurmagomedov’s reaction to knocking out Jose Aldo five years ago emerged in new footage.
The Notorious will step back into the Octagon this Saturday against Donald Cerrone.
It marks 15 months since his last fight against Khabib, where he lost out on the UFC Lightweight Championship.
The Irishman has been taken several opportunities since the loss to take a dig at the UFC star.
New footage has emerged, though, of the Russian showing his appreciation for the Notorious during his fight against Aldo.
McGregor took on the Brazilian at UFC 194 in Las Vegas five years ago, beating him with a knockout after just 13 seconds.

The clip shows Khabib watching in one of the fronts rows of the Octagon.
As Aldo falls and the Irishman celebrates, all the Russian can do is hold his hands to his head.
The then 26-year-old has a stunned smile on his face while looking around the arena.
And Khabib makes a grimacing face to his team before talking through the brief fight.

The Russian can also be seen saying: “I love this.”
This footage was shared on Twitter over the weekend, where it has been viewed more than 100,000 times.
And fans took the chance to lay into the Notorious for the fight three years later.

“Then he killed Conor… the end,” one said.
Another commented: “He’s coming.”
While a third simply added: “He was scared – then smashed him a few years later.”
McGregor only needed 13 seconds to see off Aldo, the fasted in MMA history.
The Irishman used a rapid left hook to find the Brazilian’s cheek and send him to the ground.
But he was forced to submit at UFC 229 after four rounds.
McGregor impressed fans, though, with his latest workout session.
The Notorious will face Cerrone this Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena.
