Irish MMA fighter Conor McGregor trolled Russian MMA star Petr Yan in an Oct. 23 tweet after the latter’s defeat by American fighter Sean O'Malley.

The Russian, known for his support of Russia’s war in Ukraine, lost to his U.S. rival by a split decision of the judges at the UFC 280 tournament in Abu Dhabi, the UAE.

After the fight, McGregor mocked the fact that Yan was called the best fighter in the promotion in terms of striking.

“Best striker in the UFC, lol”, he wrote on Twitter. However, later he removed his post.
