The much anticipated bout between former featherweight and lightweight champion ‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor and current UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is rumoured to be materialized for UFC 230 at the historic Madison Square Garden, New York in November.
With McGregor’s legal issues out of the way, the stars are finally aligning in the right direction to begin some negotiations between both the camps.
Nurmagomedov has been campaigning to get his hands on McGregor since a very long time. Nurmagomedov believes the courts might have handed McGregor an easy way out but that’s certainly not what he intends to do. Nurmagomedov claims he wants his payback.
“My plan is make him fight. Make him fight, make him tired, and make him give up. This is my plan,” Nurmagomedov told the fans in Calgary. “I don’t want to finish him early. I want to make him pay, about all things, what happened. You know, I can’t believe enough we’re finally going to fight. I can’t believe. Wait to sign, wait on where we’re going to fight.
“When cage close, I’m going to believe. But, before? No way.”
