Khabib Nurmagomedov has a huge task ahead in the form of Conor McGregor. But that is not stopping him from giving his opinions on other fights.
During a recent media appearance, Khabib opened up about the potential fight between Daniel Cormier and Brock Lesnar.
One per cent chance
Khabib noted that Lesnar would need a miracle to defeat Cormier.
“If you talk about Brock Lesnar about striking or wrestling – how can he beat ‘DC’?. I don’t understand this. ‘DC’ is very tough guy. I think 99 percent ‘DC’ can beat him. Only one percent (Lesnar can win). This is my opinion,” Khabib said. (via MMA Junkie)
Cormier won the Heavyweight title by defeating Stipe Miocic recently. He was then confronted by Lesnar during the post-fight interview. This led to reports of a potential fight between the two.
The same was fuelled when Lesnar re-entered the USADA testing pool. However, no official announcement has been made yet.
