Khabib Nurmagomedov spoke about wanting McGregor to replace him in a fight with Ferguson

The champion of UFC in lightweight Habib Nurmagomedov in an interview with journalist Brett Okamoto responded to the criticism of Conor McGregor, who said that Russians are afraid to fight against Tony Ferguson at UFC 249. The Irishman announced that he was ready to replace Habib in the main event, assuring that is in good shape.

“When I beat him, Conor blamed the defeat of the injured leg and said that he was in bad shape. Now he’s in good shape? How Conor can talk about the form when I beat him in the face, and then he knocked? Then he complained about her condition, and now claims that is in great shape and ready to fight.

A few days ago, he sent a message like: “Hey, people, take care of their loved ones, please stay safe, stay home, because you are asking the government.” A few days later he says, “I’m in great shape and blah-blah-blah. Someone needs to fight, someone to fly”. For me it is a fake. I have always been real. Maybe someone I like, and someone – no. It’s not my job, it’s always been me.

McGregor – fake. Why discuss Conor and his form? He went to some island and spend days sitting at home, scared of this coronavirus. But this he says not,” said Habib Nurmagomedov.
