Khabib Nurmagomedov reportedly doesn’t think Conor McGregor deserves a title shot, but that doesn’t seemingly stop this fight from happening.
Two day’s back Khabib’s manager Ali Abdelaziz tweeted that this fight is far from finalized.
Khabib, however revealed to Denmark’s Sports24, his desire to get his hands on McGregor.
“The fight will likely take place in Las Vegas. I want to fight McGregor; the fans are also waiting for this fight.”
“I hope that Conor wants this fight.”
“He talked a lot but for some reason, as soon as it came down to real negotiations about the fight, he fell silent.”
“In what round will I be able to knock McGregor out? I do not know, and no one can know this. I’m going to destroy him.”
UFC fans around the world are waiting for a confirmation, but the tease just makes it all the sweeter.
