Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor have one of the biggest rivalries in all of MMA. The two do not like each other and in the lead-up, to the fight, there were racial and controversial comments said.
Now, almost a full year after Nurmagomedov submitted McGregor he says the rivalry is far from over, and if he sees him, he could go to jail.
“Even this fight finish, not everything is finished,” Nurmagomedov told ESPN (via MMA Fighting). “Just smash people it’s not enough. I talk about just smash only him? It’s not enough. We have to smash all his team. This is what I think before the fight. This is what I say to my team. ‘Hey, tonight, we’re going to war. This is not about fight.’
“It will never be finished. Ever. Even if we see [each other] somewhere, we’re going to fight, 100 percent. It doesn’t matter if someone go to jail or something like this. I’m not scared about this. If someone has to go to jail, they go to jail. . . They go to hospital and we’ll go to police. That’s it.”
Meanwhile, although Khabib Nurmagomedov does not like Conor McGregor, the rematch is not something he wants. The Russian champion doesn’t believe he deserves it and instead, the Irishman needs to win some fights first.
“I don’t think this fight can happen,” Nurmagomedov said. “This guy have to come back and make nine- or 10-fight win streak. Then we gonna fight. Maybe people who watch this interview, they think, ‘Oh, he think about this, but when UFC ask this guy to fight Conor for millions of dollars, this guy is gonna take it.’ No. Come back and show who are you. Fight with Justin, fight with Iaquinta, fight with Tony. Fight. Just show up. When he win last time? Three years ago and this guy wants to fight for the title?
”Dana [White], no need to call me. Why he have to call me about this fight? We talk with Dana sometimes, he’s a good guy, but don’t talk with me about this crazy fight. I want to fight real guys – Dustin Poirier, Tony Ferguson, maybe if one of the greatest athletes ever, Georges St-Pierre, wants to fight. I want to fight those guys. I don’t want to fight with a guy who never wins.”
