Conor McGregor might be retired, but he’s not slowing down his trash talking at all.

McGregor tweeted and deleted Tuesday that Khabib Nurmagomedov’s wife is a “towel,” and attached a photo from their wedding with her face covered. (SLIDESHOW: These UFC Women Really Hate Wearing Clothes)

So, we’re all now in agreement that McGregor, who is under investigation for an alleged sexual assault, will fight again, right? I mean, why is he doing this if he’s not trying to hype up a rematch?

Khabib got the better of the Irish-born fighter at UFC 229, and we all know the fans want to see the two of them step into the octagon again.

Calling a dude’s wife a towel might be a solid strategy to make sure the rematch is out of control. The Russian-born champion is going to be gunning for his head.

At this point, you’re just not paying attention if you think McGregor doesn’t want to fight again. It’s that simple.

I know McGregor’s got serious legal problems on his hands, both in Ireland and in Miami for allegedly smashing a phone, but I just don’t see him quitting for good. I just don’t.

In my humble opinion, I think he absolutely will fight again.
