The UFC light champion Khabib Nurmagomedov no longer wants to play against Conor McGregor.
“For the past 3 years, Conor McGregor has every victory in the amateur boxing match. So how does he deserve to re-match me? At the latest encounter, McGregor surrendered and pleaded: Please don’t kill me. So now that guy dares to mention the rematch? “, Khabib declared loudly.
The boxer nicknamed “Russian Eagle” affirmed that he only competed with competitors with good performance and continuous play in recent years like Tony Ferguson, who did not lose any match since October 2013. As for McGregor, Khabib put an end to the possibility of re-fighting this boxer.
In October 2018, Khabib defeated McGregor in a chaotic battle at the UFC 229 event. That victory helped the Russian boxer raise his unbeaten record to 27 games, while the Irish opponent had the fourth defeat in his career.
With McGregor, since winning against Eddie Alvarez in UFC 205 in November 2016, the fighter has just played a match.
On September 7, Khabib will clash with Dustin Poirier during the unification match for the lightweight championship at UFC 242 in Abu Dhabi. Earlier, the boxer had been banned for nine months by the Sports Commission of Nevada and a half-million-dollar fine after the troublemaker at UFC 229.
Sharing with the media, “Russian Eagle” was excited: “I can’t wait to go to the ring. I’m actively preparing for the match. September 7 is very important to me and Dustin” .
Completely controlling the game during the four rounds, Khabib began to show his indignation in every punch on Conor’s face when “The Crazy Man” struggled on the ring. The Hearb Dean referee at the time admitted to being very nervous just to control Khabib, though the bell rang out.
Maintaining an impressive 22-game unbeaten series in the first stage at UFC, Khabib displayed his superiority with the skill that makes both light terrifying. Even the most demanding audience of UFC President Dana White and commentator Joe Rogan were out of praise.
