Khabib Nurmagomedov got the better of Conor McGregor at UFC 229. The Russian managed to keep his UFC Lightweight championship by submitting McGregor but apparently, he is unsatisfied with the victory.
Khabib revealed the same during a recent press conference which was held in Russia.
“When he tapped out I was disappointed. Let me explain why, because when you have a worthy opponent it’s really nice. It feels good to fight your opponent. He had so many thousands of people who flew in and came to support him. You shouldn’t tap out. You should fight to the end. After so much preparation I think it is unworthy. There should be some closure. I had this kind of frustration,” Khabib noted. (via MMA Nytt)
The Russian also went on to talk about the ‘It’s all business’ quote that McGregor used.
“Yeah we didn’t talk. I talked in the normal way, you saw that. He, I don’t know, maybe he forgot his tongue at home because he didn’t talk much. He didn’t respond. He was unwilling to talk and unwilling to compromise. I talked to him and well he said ‘it’s only business,’ but I did not seem him after the fight,” he added.
