Khabib Nurmagomedov may have punched Conor McGregor harder than we originally thought. Conor sat down with life coach guru, Tony Robbins and aired out his grievances. One of which was that he feels Khabib and his team are ‘running’ from a rematch with Conor. Not sure if Mr McGregor remembers or not, but Khabib ragdolled him in their fight, dropped him with a punch, and then strangled him.
In short, Khabib is running from no man. Especially Conor McGregor.
McGregor told Robbins his rationale regarding Khabib:
“At the end of the day, I landed the final blow of the night, right on his brother’s eye socket. Although the match didn’t go my way, the fight went my way. And trust me when I tell you, Tony, this war is not over. If this fight does not happen again, if it does not get reset, it’s on them. They’re running away. I’m here for the fight and here for the rematch.”
McGregor fails to comprehend a few things…
- Dustin Poirier is the #1 contender after winning the interim lightweight title.
- It’s Ramadan and Khabib isn’t even fighting at the moment.
- McGregor hasn’t won a fight since 2016.
- McGregor already lost handily to Khabib.
Khabib owes Conor nothing. In fact, the ball is in Khabib’s court, if he even wants to let Conor ever sniff a title fight. Conor knows this and will try and goad Khabib any way that he can; Even by telling Tony Robbins that ‘This war is not over.’
Sad news, McGregor fans… It is if Khabib says it is. Because (In McGregor’s own words) the champ does whatever the champ wants.
