UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor has been at the heart of controversies throughout his career. He has also received a lot of criticism in his career for not defending any of the titles that he has won. The Irishman has more or less always gotten away with not defending his title. However, McGregor’s rival and UFC lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov feels that “Mystic Mac” will soon be stripped of the title for not defending it.

“Mystic Mac” won the lightweight title by defeating Eddie Alvarez via knockout due to punches in the second round. He then went on to have a boxing match against Floyd Mayweather Jr. losing the mach via TKO in the tenth round. “The Notorious” has been on a long hiatus from MMA and is looking to have a huge multi-million dollar rematch with Mayweather inside the octagon.

On the other hand, Tony Ferguson is the current interim champion of the division and he is all set to have a long awaited match with Nurmagomedov at UFC 223. Their match is scheduled to be for the undisputed Lightweight title. However, UFC president Dana White has refused to comment on whether McGregor will be stripped of his title or not.

Nurmagomedov was outside Jay Glazer’s MMA gym when he ran into reporters from TMZ. He also confirmed that his bout against Ferguson at UFC 223 is for the “real” lightweight belt. Here’s what the Russian told TMZ Sports:

“I don’t think he gonna come back, when’s the last time Conor compete in MMA? Long time. He’s boxing guy.”

 

Nurmagomedov’s comments will disappoint a lot of fans who wanted to watch McGregor, compete in MMA again.
