Khabib Nurmagomedov is among those who doubt Conor McGregor’s ability to rebound from the first knockout loss of his career. The Irishman and Khabib share a tumultuous past full of personal insults, post-fight brawls, and the biggest grossing fight in UFC history.
McGregor Responds To “disrespectful” Khabib:
“That’s Fighting Talk” Khabib, who has made it clear that he has no interest in a rematch with McGregor, doesn’t think the knockout artist can regain his momentum in UFC and get back to the level he was once at during his prime.
“Never. There is no way that a man can be at the peak for two times,” said Khabib in a recent interview with ACA fighter Magomed Ismailov.
While Nurmagomedov and McGregor share one of the most volatile feuds in UFC history the Russian champ isn’t making a personal assumption about the Irishman.
It’s a blanket statement, but one that covers McGregor’s current situation at 155 pounds.
