Abdulmanap, Khabib Nurmagomedov’s father while speaking to MatchTV.ru revealed that Khabib is interested in fighting Eddie Alvarez if Tony Ferguson ends up fighting Conor Mcgregor.
It seems Abdulmanap is were Khabib gets his chutzpah from because in typical Khabib fashion, Abdulmanap stated “I think that Conor, Diaz, and Ferguson, instead of fighting with Khabib, will be better off fighting against each other 30 times. “We understand this perfectly. If Conor and Ferguson fight among themselves, give us Alvarez. He said that he was preparing Barboza for Khabib. Well, let’s see, let him go by himself now.”
Eddie Alvarez who lost his lightweight belt against Conor Mcgregor at UFC 205 won an absolutely brilliant battle against Justin Gaethje at UFC 218 and would be a worthy opponent for Khabib next and possibly a fight which no one envisioned but now that Abdulmanap has put the idea in everyone’s head…we for sure have started salivating.
