Nurmagomedov livid over McGregor vs. Alvarez

Mixed martial arts is a tough gig – usually, when one person wins, someone else loses. UFC president Dana White announced Monday night that featherweight champion Conor McGregor would challenge lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez for his title at UFC 205. The UFC’s return to New York after 21 years is now amazing, with three title fights.

But there was a loser.

The #1 lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov had been given two contracts to fight Alvarez, for UFC 205 and one for UFC 206. He signed them both. Nurmagomedov also characterized an Alvarez vs. McGregor fight as #1 bulls***.

Nurmagomedov expressed his frustration via his social network.

“When I signed agreement with UFC it was sport,” he wrote on Instagram. “Now it became a freak show, or I don’t know how to call it right. Only thing that keeping me in this cracking sport, is that I don’t want to stop on the halfway, I wasn’t raised like this, not a quitter. I’ll keep moving forward InshaAllah.”

The most popular man on the UG, touch, noticed that Nurmagomedov fans were as incensed as their hero, and let it be known. When White made an innocuous, unrelated post on Instagram, the result was both colorful and scathing.

arkadiy_bjj Dana, yesterday was the day of birth control. Well, congratulations, you condom! #khabibtime

You have to give it to Khabib’s fans for colorful putdowns. Hopefully “you venal creature” becomes a thing.

The other man who lost our, Jose Aldo, offered a less forceful response.

“It is what it is, but make no mistake I WILL see you again,” he wrote in a Twitter post that he then deleted. “Regardless of weight class or belt.”
