Khabib Nurmagomedov calls Conor McGregor ‘bag of sh*t’ in new interview
Khabib Nurmagomedov says Conor McGregor’s days at the top are ‘finished’
Nurmagomedov said in a new interview with ESPN, the time has come for the UFC to turn the page on the McGregor chapter, following his injury on Saturday night, and subsequent surgery.
Nurmagomedov, 32, is the same age as McGregor and retired from fighting after making a promise to his mother to leave the competition behind following the death of his father, Abdulmanap from COVID-19 related complications.
Nurmagomedov calls McGregor ‘bag of sh*t’
McGregor claimed on social media following surgery that he’ll be back in the octagon, and Nurmagomedov thinks he’s accurate. Predicting UFC won’t be able to walk away from the relationship. Instead, Nurmagomedov said he’ll likely get another fight with Poirier or old rival Nate Diaz.
Nurmagomedov said UFC will have a price to pay if it continues to trumpet McGregor.
Poirier will now move on to a lightweight title fight against new champion Charles Oliveira. A date for that matchup has yet to be determined.
