However, Khabib Nurmagomedov says he is not interested in a second fight with Conor Mcgregor. However, the UFC star believes that their long-running feud never ends.
In an exclusive interview with ESPN, Nurmagomedov says he would fight McGregor on the street if they met, but he won’t give him an immediate rematch as long as he holds the title. “I’m not fighting men who can’t win, McGregor is part of it,” Khabib said.
“It is now more than a fight, it is a war between me and McGregor, but also with his entire team. This will never go away and when I meet him on the street I will beat him up, I don’t care if I have to go to jail for that, “says Khabib.
The hatred between the two fighters is deeply rooted, McGregor launched a true hatred campaign against Khabib, where even his family was not spared. McGregor also made allusions to the Muslim belief that Khabib adheres to. This led to an escalation after the fight of the two and which led to major discussions.
Both fighters received punishments for their misconduct, but that did not end the stocking. McGregor went ahead and insulted Khabib’s wife, who in turn responded by calling McGregor a rapist. Khabib will defend his title against Dustin Poirier on UFC 242 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirate on September 7
