Conor McGregor Claims Khabib's Manager Is A Terrorist

Conor McGregor Claims Khabib's Manager Is A Terrorist

"He doesn't want to be around me", McGregor said.

The differences continue all the way through to the strengths of each fighter: Nurmagomedov is famous for his wrestling and grappling; McGregor is known for his striking.

In a separate interview with UFC Tonight, McGregor said he couldn't believe how bad Nurmagomedov looked in his fight against Al Iaquinta, a five-round unanimous decision win that secured him the belt. "If somebody is late that's his problem".

If he did the same to Khabib Nurmagomeodv at UFC 229, he'd want to make a quick turn around to headline the upcoming UFC 230 Pay-Per-View event. Apparently angered by a confrontation between Nurmagomedov and another MMA fighter who is a training partner of McGregor's, the latter stormed into a parking area underneath Brooklyn's Barclays Center in April, looking for Nurmagomedov. He's petrified. I've given you enough faceoffs all these years.

After 15 minutes of answering questions while the crowd attempted to drown him out, the native of Russian Federation delivered on his threats to leave when McGregor never showed.

"I'm starting a new weight class because I heard they already wanted to do it anyway, I'm like let's get it poppin". I am going to finish this guy and stop this guy and this is my plan. "I'm sure he's hunting for a few quid as well".

"I don't need to wait for nobody, this is 3 p.m., fans are here, media is here", Nurmagomedov said.

Nurmagomedov was once again barracked by a largely pro-McGregor crowd, as he had been at Wednesday's open workouts, and the Irishman suggested that may have been one of the reasons his foe refused to hang around. "Trust me. I'm coming for that man's head from the bell". I don't think about him.

Anthony Pettis has some interesting takes on the wild UFC lightweight title picture going into Saturday's UFC 229 event.

Nurmagomedov, who is 26-0 and making the first defence of his title on Sunday, believes he's ability to stay composed in the face of McGregor's wild taunting has the former champ anxious.

"There will never be peace here", McGregor said. "That's the one I'm more interested in".

"To be honest, I don't want [McGregor] to go to jail".

"I feel like I'm going to dominate him. Never, ever, ever, over".

"When a guy makes 100million USA dollars you don't know whether he's ever going to fight again", White said.

That would obliterate the previous highest UFC record of 1.65million buys for McGregor's rematch against Nate Diaz in 2016.

But the drumbeat for a showdown between the outspoken former plumber from Dublin and Nurmagomedov intensified earlier this year when McGregor was at the centre of a extraordinary melee in NY in April.
