Khabib Wants “World Tour” To Promote A McGregor Fight
Following his victory at UFC 223, the new UFC undisputed lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov, said even though Conor McGregor was arrested and charged days prior for an attack on his bus, that he wants the fight, and wants a world tour to promote it.
“I hope he’s gonna fight. We have to fight,” Khabib said (transcript via MMA Fighting). “Make world tour everywhere, Tokyo, Moscow, Dublin, Los Angeles, Rio. Big world tour, promote this fight, said Nurmagomedov.
Not only did the new champion have plans for a world tour, but also pitched three legendary venues for them to fight in.
“..fight end of the year, biggest arena in the world, Madison Square Garden. Why not? Or maybe in Zaire or Philippines.”
“It’s going to be very big fight. It’s going to be very big fight, I think. Let’s go. I am ready for this. November, September in Moscow, November in New York. Any time. Let’s go. Let’s fight in Africa or somewhere. I am here.”
Now with the personal grudge taken to another level between Nurmagomedov and McGergor, Khabib is ready to resolve his beef with McGregor inside the Octagon or outside.
From his end, Khabib is hoping that he would be able to settle his beef with McGregor, one way or another.
“We have to finish this beef. Beef, chicken, or something like this,” Khabib said
“Inside the cage, come. Outside the cage, let me know without camera, without all this media,” he added. “Like men. He come when a lot of security here, outside the bus, inside the bus, security here, don’t let me go out. Like, he try to, ‘Hey, come out,’ like this. Why you need this show up? Let me know and that’s it, any time.”
