Flip and get the latest UFC threat on Conor McGregor by Khabib Nurmagomedov…
CelebNSports247.com got word via TMZ, who spoke to Khabib Nurmagomedov, and and he explained the fight isn’t about the money because “I have a lot of money.”
What does money have to do with beating McGregor?
Khabib says Conor simply rubs him the wrong way. He wants to punish the Irish superstar, badly. Khabib apparently can taste a victory, but isn’t this the same this Eddie Alvarez just said before losing his fight last week?
The Russian fighter had this to say to TMZ cameras:
“I want to take him down, speak with him, slap him, make him nervous … like, ‘Hey, get up! Let’s go! Where is your boxing?’ … play with him and make him give up. This is what I want. But I don’t want to finish him 1st round, 2nd round, 3rd round … I want to fight with him for 25 minutes like 5 rounds and I want to make him look very bad. And finish his hype.”
Khabib also describes a backstage confrontation with Conor at UFC 205. He says that he’s no Eddie Alvarez or Tyron Woodley because he would’ve destroyed Conor on the spot if he hadn’t retreated.
Khabib also explains why he no longer gets into street fights, because he’s afraid he might kill someone.
Could Khabib Nurmagomedov be the one who takes down Conor?
We will keep you posted..
