Conor McGregor has continued to berate his former friend and training partner Artem Lobov. In a now-deleted tweet, McGregor seemed to hint at a connection between Lobov’s love of rodents and reptiles and his alleged betrayal of the Irishman.
It seems the lawsuit between McGregor and Lobov has taken it up a notch, with the Russian reportedly filing a second lawsuit against the Irish superstar for defamation. Lobov first filed a lawsuit demanding millions of dollars in reimbursement after claiming he played a key role in helping McGregor launch his whiskey brand.
In a recently deleted tweet, ‘Notorious’ claimed that his father obtained legal papers from Lobov and made some revelations about the Russian’s favorite pets:
“My dad 63 years old got attorney letter from Artem omg. You told my father and I that you keep rodents and reptiles as pets. Rats and snakes are your thing, you said. You have a relationship with them, you said to us don’t you remember? You absolute idiot.”“/>Screenshot of Conor McGregor’s now-deleted tweet about Artem Lobov via @TheNotoriousMMA
McGregor confirmed the second lawsuit against him and his father with another tweet:
“Artem is now also trying to sue me and my father for defamation, oh god bless him. Artem, you look like an uncooked sausage. Jump on the pan for a little bro, you look gross, bro. God bless you mate.” BREAKING: Artem Lobov is trying to sue Conor McGregor and his father for defamation.

Brendan Schaub defends Conor McGregor amid PED allegations
Brendan Schaub has spoken out for McGregor, saying the superstar’s use of performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) to recover from the horrific injury he suffered against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 is understandable.
Speaking on The Schaub Show on his YouTube channel, Schaub defended McGregor:
“UFC? [Conor McGregor’s] the cash cow. Do what you have to do to come back. Because if he competes, he will be clean. It’s a gray area… You’re judging Conor or anyone who’s done things out there and [suffers] a terrible injury like this, you don’t know what the hell you’re talking about. The stakes are so damn high. I would do exactly the same.”

The allegations of Conor McGregor’s use of PEDs likely stem from the Irishman’s massive physique in his recent pictures and USADA himself, which admits they haven’t tested Notorious in the last 12 months.
With the latest update from USADA, it can now be confirmed that Conor McGregor has not had to submit a test for the past 12 months.
