Khabib Promises To Destroy McGregor
While Conor McGregor works on a plea deal for his bus attack at UFC 223, Khabib Nurmagomedov is patiently waiting for him to return to the UFC.
The undefeated UFC lightweight champion spoke with Sport24,and continued to be vocal about his intentions with the former champion.
”I do not yet know who my opponent will be,” Nurmagomedov told sport24.ru. “The fight will likely take place in Las Vegas. I want to fight McGregor; the fans are also waiting for this fight. I hope that Conor wants this fight. He talked a lot but for some reason, as soon as it came down to real negotiations about the fight, he fell silent.”
McGregor, who was the first man to whole two UFC championships at the same time, has not fought inside the Octagon since UFC 205 in 2016. And while its been nearly two years since he has fought for the UFC, a McGregor and Nurmagomedov title bout is rumored to headline UFC 229. If the two fighters do square off, Nurmagomedov is not only confident, he feels he will “destroy” the Irishman.
“In what round will I be able to knock McGregor out? I do not know, and no one can know this. I’m going to destroy him.”
