The biggest fight in the history of UFC between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov is just a few days away and both sides have been extremely vocal. During the first press conference which took place in New York City, Conor launched a series of verbal assault against Khabib, his father, Ramzan Kadyrov, who is the head of the Chechen Republic and a former member of the Chechen independence movement and widely considered by many as the dictator who recently made the headline for the persecution of gay man in Chechen Republic and last but not least he went ballistics on Khabib Nurmagomedov’s manager Ali Abdelaziz.
Now, Khabib Nurmagomedov has come up with his own research and today at open workouts he told the Irish fans in attendance that McGregor’s grandfather had been an enemy of Ireland.
“In three days, you’re gonna like me. You’re gonna like me in three days. I have question for Ireland. What about your language? What about Irish language? Where is your language right now? What’s wrong with your language?
“You guys change it? What about your language? Please someone can give me answer? You guys with England right now?
“This guy talks (about) them fighting against English but his grandfather, Christopher McGregor was with the English navy. And he killed your people. And now you guys support him. I’m gonna change this Saturday night.”
