Conor on Conan: Khabib is slow and flat-footed

Former UFC double champ Conor McGregor was on Conan last night where he spoke about his opponent in this Saturday night’s UFC 229 pay-per-view headliner, UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

“He may have wrestled a Dagestani bear, but he’s never wrestled an Irish gorilla.”

Is this the biggest fight in UFC history? This is a question many have asked and in short the answer is yes. Any McGregor fight is a blockbuster show but this has everything. Two of the sports leading fighters, contrasting styles and a rivalry to boot. This contest is very likely to break all previous UFC PPV records with tickets also selling out in record time as fans clamour to see these two warriors of the sport face off.
