Conor McGregor’s thoughts on Khabib Nurmagomedov.

A fan asked Conor McGregor about his view regarding The Eagle as a fighter. The Notorious One gave an honest reply to the question and lauded Khabib Nurmagomedov as a phenomenal grappler. He also explained the recently retired undisputed UFC lightweight winner was the very best in the game in terms of grappling.

Conor McGregor lately conducted an impromptu Q&A session with his fans on Twitter. The Notorious One opened on a lot of topics and revealed his thoughts on one of his arch-rivals in UFC, Khabib Nurmagomedov.

But, McGregor explained that he’s the answer to Khabib Nurmagomedov’s style.

Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov’s rivalry

When the two modern-day greats fulfilled from the Octagon, the UFC Lightweight Championship was on the line as well. While Conor McGregor did win the third round of the fight, it was Khabib Nurmagomedov that outclassed the Irish fighter and came out on top through submission in round four.

Before this, there was plenty of back and forth between both parties that also saw Conor McGregor’s infamous dolly attack a bus carrying fighters following a media event related to UFC 223.

Ever since then, Conor McGregor has been clamoring for a rematch between the two. But, his hopes have been dealt a huge blow recently as Khabib Nurmagomedov decided to retire from the sport after protecting his UFC Lightweight Championship from Justin Gaethje in UFC 254.

Conor McGregor led the way by committing a tribute to his arch-rival and wished him well in retirement. While Khabib did resign from the game, many – including UFC president Dana White – believe he’d reunite in the Octagon and his retirement is just temporary.

If that is the case, a rematch with Conor McGregor could be in the works for The Eagle.

Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov were involved in a few of the most heated rivalries in recent memory. The culmination of this rivalry happened at UFC 229 in 2018.
