Khabib Nurmagomedov is done hearing about Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather.
A heated war of words has erupted between the UFC’s featherweight and lightweight champion and the retired, undefeated boxer. McGregor has recently even gone on record to state he would fight Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match if paid $100 million.
But a Tweet from Nurmagomedov shows his feelings on the potential dream bout and the fighters in it.
The media all they talk about is chicken Irish guy and @FloydMayweather I will smash these 2 guys at the same time enough with the bullshit

Nurmagomedov, who defeated Michael Johnson at UFC 205 last Saturday night, is listed in the top spot of the UFC’s lightweight rankings. He was originally scheduled to receive the title shot against Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 or UFC 206 before McGregor fought Alvarez last Saturday night and went on to win the title.
During Nurmagomedov’s fight with Johnson, he could be heard telling Johnson to give up so he can get a title shot, and telling UFC President Dana White that he deserves a shot at the lightweight title.
Nurmagomedov has threatened to leave the UFC if he does not get a title shot in his next bout.
