The biggest fight in the history of UFC between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov is just a month away and American Kickboxing Academy head coach Javier Mendez has highly praised the Russian.

Coach Javier Mendez claimed that Nurmagomedov is so mentally strong that he doubts he will ever lose a single fight.

“I’m of the belief that Khabib’s mental strength is so strong that I personally feel that he’s never going to lose,” Mendez told MMA Fighting. “I really don’t — I don’t think he’s ever going to lose. He’s going to find whatever he needs to do to win, whether he does it my way or does it his way, he’s going to find a way to win and that’s just what he does.”

Mendez says Conor’s mind games or the previous bus attack and altercations won’t affect his star pupil.

“I’m not going to have to worry about keeping [Nurmagomedov] in check. He is so mentally strong that it’s not going to be an issue at all. Like I said, Conor is going to press his buttons, but it doesn’t matter. I believe Khabib is going to stay cool throughout the whole thing,” Mendez said.

“He’s going to dish it out as good as he gets it, and trust me, Conor’s going to give it to him because Conor is master at playing the game. He’s going to find an equal mental sparring partner as well as physical. This fight is going to be mental and physical, outside the fight and inside the fight, they’re both going to fight for the advantages.”

UFC 229 takes place on October 6, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
