The Irish Conor McGregor believes he will be considered the best fighter in mixed martial arts when he retires, but Khabib Nurmagomedov is not of the same opinion.
Speaking on Twitter on Saturday, McGregor has lit a fire on social media with his allegations, incendiary, Saturday. Stung to the quick, Nurmagomedov answered with a replica assassin.
“You have removed the weight of feathers, thou hast removed a light weight and you’ve removed the weight welterweight. And you have never defended any title. You have abandoned more often than “GSP”, Spider and Bones together,” wrote Nurmagomedov on Twitter.
“Anderson Silva is the best of all time, had previously said McGregor. I’m number 2, if I am not equal to the first rank. I’m always active, the first place to me) is provided at the end of my career and easily.”
McGregor has also held that Georges St-Pierre, who learned of his induction into the hall of fame of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) earlier this month, came in third position among the largest.
“He left the 170-pound after you have suffered a lot of damage, a decision is questionable, has indicated the controversial fighting irish. He was never committed to confront his successors at 170 pounds.”
“It is income only when it is presented with an opponent with a single eye, said McGregor, referring to Michael Bisping, known for having suffered a retinal detachment. He has been careful.”
McGregor made his return to the octagon on 18 January from the K. O. to Donald Cerrone. It was his first fight since his defeat against Nurmagomedov in October 2018.
Their duel had ended in the tumult. After the victory of the Russian, the latter came out of the octagon to take on the clan of McGregor, in particular.
Nurmagomedov had explained his actions by reason of the insults that the Irish had to tell about her family. He has been suspended nine months and fined $ 500,000 per the athletic Commission of Nevada.
