`Scurrying away`: Conor McGregor slams Khabib Nurmagomedov for retiring

`Scurrying away`: Conor McGregor slams Khabib Nurmagomedov for retiring”

However, for White, he believes it will be a close fight.

Conor McGregor has ramped down his verbal attacks on Khabib Nurmagomedov, somewhat, since the star announced he was retiring this past October. But, while talking about his rival's apparent retirement recently, McGregor took a couple of verbal pokes at the undefeated lightweight. I don't care about nothing, you're scheduled to fight a man and no matter what the fight must take place.

Conor McGregor has said that he was "not surprised" to see Khabib Nurmagomedov announce his retirement from the UFC previous year.

Over the course of the last few years McGregor hasn't been afraid to splash the cash, and it's not exactly hard to understand why after the insane wealth he has been able to accumulate courtesy of his ventures and achievements both in and outside of the Octagon.

"There are so many awesome fights out there".

"I think that if his mother says no, it's no", he added.

"I would like to put a stint in at 155 pounds, for sure", McGregor said (via MMA Junkie). You can't just scurry away from bouts.

'I'm here to compete against good competition and the belts will come, maybe the next bout is fair.

"I'm not going to get caught up in the politics of this business", he continued. "I have in the past, and it's hampered me".

"Whether he can apply them all or not is what we're going to find out this year, but as far as technical ability, Charles Oliveira is the guy in this division".

But Nurmagomeov was fighting for the first time since the death of his father and lifelong coach Abdulmanap, whose heart condition had been exacerbated by COVID-19, and the man considered to be one of the best MMA fighters of all time said he wouldn't want to carry on without his father in his corner.
