The UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and his bitter rival the former UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor have been verbally going at each other for days now via tweets and interviews. Now Nurmagomedov has commented on this entire trash talking spree and has again taunted McGregor through his latest comments.
Nurmagomedov said that McGregor wasn’t saying anything when he was hitting him back during their fight at UFC 229. Here’s what he had to say:
He wants to always be in the headlines. If you’ve noticed, after each UFC event, [he] makes comments. He praises those who win, or insults the others. This is his way of self-promotion, that’s how he makes headlines all the time. He knows what he’s doing.
And I have no problem with that, he can say whatever he wants. But inside the cage he didn’t say anything. When I was hitting him in the face with my elbows and knees, he did not say anything. When I said ‘Let’s talk,’ he didn’t respond. And now, when he is thousands of kilometres away, he is saying things.
That just shows what kind of lowlife he really is. When he was on the floor he didn’t speak to me, and that is what really matters.
