UFC superstar Conor McGregor responded to UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov after losing to Dustin Poirier.

McGregor was shockingly defeated by Dustin Poirier in the UFC 257 and suffered a cruel defeat in the second round knockout. The Irish were a big favorite in the fight and it was very surprising to many to see him lose in such a devastating way, but not to Nurmagomedov. Following the UFC 257, the champion used his social media to shoot McGregor. Criticize superstars for changing camps and bringing fame to the fore..

After seeing what Nurmagomedov said about him, McGregor responded to the UFC Lightweight Champion at a UFC 257 post-match press conference.

“My team has been a team since day one. I haven’t changed anything. That’s the reality. I respect the athlete. It’s certainly the character of the guy behind the mask. Whatever he does. What do you want to do? Does he want to come back or no? If he wants to make his rude comments, come back and go again, my guy. I’m for it I’m here. It’s a battle story, “McGregor said (h / t). MMAjunkie.com).

I was a little surprised to see Nurmagomedov shoot Magregor just because Nurmagomedov is always a very quiet and respectful fighter and says few negative things. But given their competition in the past, it makes sense for Nurmagomedov to say something aloud. McGregor has spent the last few weeks on Fight Island, criticizing Nurmagomedov and trying to lead him into battle. UFC President Dana White Wanted to Book Badly.. However, it seems unlikely that a rematch will occur as McGregor loses to Poirier.

Do you think you’ll see a rematch between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov, or did the ship sail over it?
