Conor McGregor brands Khabib Nurmagomedov 'petrified' ahead of UFC 229

Conor McGregor

"I don't want to say that we could possibly do Mayweather-McGregor numbers but we could possibly do Mayweather-McGregor numbers", White said.

Khabib has been saying in various interviews that he plans on making McGregor exhausted and humble, and that is what I expect. "The traffic was kind of heavy". He doesn't want to be around me and these people. Why [do] I have to think about him, [if] he comes or not?

"He's too easily hit, too flat-footed, too predictable, I'm going to knock him clean out", added McGregor, branding his rival a "smelly Dagestani rat". When the bout was announced back in August, Khabib opened as a -200 favorite, while McGregor was listed at +160.

Afterwards he told the cheering audience: "Saturday night: You're in for a show, trust me on that".

He continued: "I give his whole team slap and no one say anything".

"All the time, he gets exhausted, he gives up", Nurmagomedov said.

Conor McGregor has his hands full on Saturday night against Khabib Nurmagomedov, but on Monday's episode of Ariel Helwani's MMA Show he raised a lot of eyebrows when he said he would like to fight Anderson Silva. I'm coming for that man's head from the f****** bell.




McGregor, 30, has not fought in the octagon since he knocked out Eddie Alvarez in November 2016 to win the lightweight title and become the first fighter to hold two UFC belts at the same time. "I'm going to settle this the noble way for myself and then see what happens after that".

"If somebody is late, this is not my problem". "I have to make weight".

"This guy talks (about) fighting against English, but his grandfather, Christopher McGregor, was with the English navy", Nurmagomedov said in remarks to Irish fans of McGregor this week.

While many fans will justly point to Chad Mendes' short training camp for the loss, there is no question that Conor McGregor proved that he is capable of fighting through adversity in his bout with "Money".

Instead of having it out with Nurmagomedov directly, McGregor wound up attacking a bus containing fighters and staffers who were at the arena for UFC 223. For me, it's personal. Iaquinta did little but survive, and Nurmagomedov was even able to handily beat him on the feet. "F*** peace, there will never be peace", McGregor said. I'm going to aim between that man's eyes and this is never over.

The brash Irish superstar will be returning for arguably his greatest challenge to date in the form of undefeated current UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. If he did the same to Khabib Nurmagomeodv at UFC 229, he'd want to make a quick turn around to headline the upcoming UFC 230 Pay-Per-View event.
