UFC’s last PPV, UFC 229 left many fight fans and fighters praising Khabib Nurmagomedov as he submitted the former lightweight and featherweight champion, Conor McGregor in the fourth-round.
With this victory, Khabib Nurmagomedov took his undefeated MMA record to 27-0, a large feat in MMA.
But Nick Diaz doesn’t seem impressed with Khabib and called Khabib Nurmagomedov’s fighting style ‘dirty’.
He also said that Conor McGregor didn’t look 100% in that fight.
Nick Diaz expressed his views to UFC on Fox and said, ”I don’t think Conor looked like himself in that fight. First time I saw him on screen. Yeah, I don’t think he looked 100% Conor McGregor in that fight.”
“I wanted him to win because I’m tired of seeing (Nurmagomedov’s) type of style win”
Nick also said, “To me, it’s a dirty fighting style.”
Many fight experts believe its hard to beat Khabib but Nick has his own take to it.
“Yeah! because you have to have a certain style to beat that kind of wrestler on the ground,” said Nick Diaz.
Nick Diaz concluded the interview by saying. “Less of the wrestler. Less of the defensive boxer and wrestler who puts on a boring fight. It’s just a dirty way of fighting… holding onto somebody and giving them little hits. So yeah, I’ve got to take McGregor’s side on that one.”
