• “He didn’t do f**k all in the sport” – Conor McGregor Compares Khabib Nurmagomedov To A Rat
Former UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov retired from the sport of Mixed Martial Arts last year after his win at UFC 254 with a perfect record of 29-0.
Even Dana White confirmed earlier this year that Khabib’s retirement was actually legitimate (unlike most retirements in pro-wrestling, or even MMA).
UFC Legend Conor McGregor, who’s considered the biggest draw in the history of UFC and the sport of MMA in general, spoke to BT Sport about his former opponent and had the following to say:
“I don’t really give a f**k about that guy, to be honest with you. I mean, he ran, he’s gone. What did he do? He didn’t do f**k all in the sport, in my opinion. Three wins on the trot before that he pulled out and everything. Had a little run and dipped out, showed his true character. It’s not like I wasn’t surprised, he scurried away like the little rat that he is. So I’m not even concerned.”
Khabib beat McGregor at UFC 229 via Submission. It was the highest selling PPV in UFC history, with 2.4 million buys.
