Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor have been completed, and he thinks MMA should be the same.
Nurmagomedov, former UFC lightweight champion and owner of a 29-0 UFC match, explained: McGregor’s broken leg In the first round of defeat against Dustin Povalier, his ability to return to the top of the game will be hindered. Therefore, he believes that the UFC should move on from the 32-year-old Irish boxer.
“No broken leg, yes, [he could be the same],” Nurmagomedov said, every Brett Okamoto of ESPN“But with a broken leg, he will never kick the same leg. For him, no, I don’t believe [he’ll return to the top]. Connor has a good age , But what happened to his thoughts and legs-this guy is over, but he is good for promotion. “
McGregor has lost four of the past five games, including back-to-back games against Poriye. Since 2016, he has only defeated Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in the game. Nurmagomedov was one of the people who defeated McGregor in 2018, so he will understand the overall abilities of the Irish.
However, this is not just about his game. Nurmagomedov tore up McGregor because of McGregor’s behavior outside the Octagon. He specifically talked about an incident in 2019 in which McGregor slapped a man in the face in a bar in Ireland.
“Money and fame show who you are,” Nurmagomedov told ESPN. “We have always heard that money and reputation change people. No. When money and reputation come, these two things show who you are. What else [McGregor] complete?He hit an old guy [in a bar in 2019]. You can see everything he did and understand, like Dustin said,’This guy is a bag of s-. ‘”
Nurmagomedov believes that Dana White and the UFC will give McGregor another chance to compete with Poirier or Nate Diaz for the title.Nevertheless, he didn’t like McGregor getting more airtime, even though the Irishman had Seven of the top nine UFC PPV matches of all time made headlines.
“If the MMA community is to support these bad guys, the sport will be played in a bad way,” Nurmagomedov said.
