UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman has trolled Conor McGregor and Jorge Masvidal by claiming their recent records have 'killed' the Versace brand.
McGregor infamously wore a Versace dressing gown before his 2017 open workout for his multi-million-pound boxing match with Floyd Mayweather Jr.
And BMF titleholder Masvidal wore the same robe at UFC 246 in order to get The Notorious' attention in the build-up to the Irishman's 40-second demolition of Donald Cerrone.
Both men currently find themselves out of the win column, with McGregor losing his rematch with Dustin Poirier in January and Masvidal suffering a unanimous decision defeat to Usman last July.
Usman's manager Ali Abdelaziz poked fun at the pair with side-by-side pictures of them in their expensive gowns.
He tweeted: "I used to like Versace @TeamKhabib @USMAN84kg #killed the brand."
Usman then quoted tweeted Abdelaziz's jibe and said: "Big facts."
McGregor, 32, is currently preparing for his blockbuster trilogy fight with former featherweight rival Poirier.

Masvidal, meanwhile, is set to make his return to the octagon in September.
He told Boxing Social: "Right now, I’m focused on me fighting for the belt. In September, we have just got word.
"That’s what I’m worried about. Then we will see, whatever the future holds.
“So you’re like the second person actually to know this right now. That’s just how luck works man.
"A lot of MMA media sites are going to be mad I dropped to on yours first, boxing of all people.
"There’s going to call me a traitor. But that’s what I’m worried about.”
Usman called out Gamebred last month after his UFC 258 victory over Gilbert Burns and vowed to put an emphatic beating on the fan favourite.
He said: “This time I want to stop him for real because I think that’s the only thing that’s going to close his mouth.
“Pretending walking around here like he’s Jesus or something. Well, I’m going to put him in a coffin this time.
“This time I will stop him. I promise you.
"That’s why I was disappointed in myself that last fight because I know I can stop him but with all the circumstances took place, I just went out there and dominated him from start to finish.
"This time I will stop him if he wants to step up.”
