Javier Mendes, coach of Habib Nurmagomedov, was a guest on the radio submitted to discuss a recently retired fighter.
The name Conor McGregor was to decide to return to the Octagon, along with other ideas by Nurmagomedov.
His reaction to McGregor / Poirier 2
“When I see Dustin start a leg kick, I go, huh, Connor’s stance isn’t made to check properly, such a leg kick, especially a calf kick. So I thought it would be a big problem. And when he hit Dustin with a good shot and Dustin took it, that was when I knew a bit, oh, things will change, and surely And they did. And doing leg kicks, calf kicks was a great game plan from Dustin, and not preparing for it was a bad decision on Connor’s side. Everyone does. I don’t know why I can’t prepare for that. Habib, I told him, I tell him that Justin comes after your feet every day, that Justin comes after your feet. Every day I told him that, and because it’s a big weapon, you’ll also think you’ll be reminded. It’s a big weapon until the fighter learns how to deal with it. It will be, everyone will be a great weapon. “
About Connor’s performance affected by going to Portugal and changing things at the camp
“”[Inactivity] Affects things, and that’s what he says, but do I also know when you make changes in the camp, when things weren’t broken, why change them? He went to Portugal for training. But what was the problem with where he was always training? I do not know. He seems to have made a lot of changes, but why change when things aren’t broken? I always told Habib and all of them why when you’re doing something good and winning, why change it. Why are you trying to change things? If things are working, you don’t need to change things. That’s what I’m thinking about. I’m not saying I’m right. I’m just saying that’s what I’m thinking. “
This time, I really enjoyed talking about Connor and Habib’s garbage.
“I think the conversations before and after between them are very professional. This time we’re rapping each other. That’s great. Wrap me, wrap coaches, wrap habits, wrap managers. And exclude everyone else from it. And I think it’s cool. I think it’s kind of a sportsman. As you know, it’s not like a sportsman, but at least everyone If you only attack a specific person, not a person, you’re as clean and sportsman as possible. “
“Yes, he’s not talking about family, religion, or country, he’s just talking about Habib. Cool. That’s nothing wrong. Talk about him. Say,” Come on, step up. ” He is doing it right. I don’t like him yet, but he’s doing it right. “
What was McGregor’s second fight with Habib in 2021?
“He would have been destroyed. Habib would have improved. He would have been destroyed. He would have been destroyed. Straight. Better Habib. He had when they fought two years ago. Better than. Connor didn’t look good. He retreated a little. Habib was much better. He would have been destroyed. “
Only GSP has a chance to bring Habib back
“I didn’t even know if he was [Conor] If Habib could even fight him, he would have done great because he had to seek his mother’s permission first. The important thing is that he also has to ask his mother for permission. And I didn’t see GSP being offered. And he wondered if the only way out of it was if the GSP was in the picture. But I don’t know why he wants to come out and fight someone based on what happened. why? The best fight is not going to motivate him. He doesn’t look at the money side of it. But if they can put the GSP, if they can put the GSP on the table, there may be a chance. I’m not saying that because I don’t know, but I’m just saying it might just be GSP. I always thought it was a GSP because my dad wanted it. If that works and I get the permission of my mother, I think it will work. But I don’t think anyone else is going to work. Limit “
“When he hears my opinion, he says he will withdraw or retire from the GSP. That’s what I tell him. But he never asked me, so the conversation never happens. did not.”
Rematch with Conor McGregor will never happen after UFC 257
“You never get that rematch. Just as you never get the fight between Tony and Habib. It never happens. It won’t happen. That is, Habib does it. I don’t need it. He seems to be fulfilling. And, as I said, the only juicy part for him is what his dad wanted, GSP. And who knows, maybe it’s out of the question now. Maybe GSP doesn’t want it now, maybe Habib doesn’t want it now. I don’t know, I talked about what Habib wants. I’ve never heard of him, so I’ve always listened to him. “
About Habib who wants to train before UFC 257 in case something excites him and comes back
“When we were in Abu Dhabi, he wanted me to train him, so there were signs that he might be fighting if something got his fantasies, Okay, where he would have gone, I’m going to retire, I’m going to fight this guy. “
“At this point, as far as I know, that doesn’t happen. But hey, listen, he hasn’t officially retired by Dana, and Dana didn’t stop trying. So leave it unknown. Let’s go. What if Dana offered him something he couldn’t refuse? “
“We were in Abu Dhabi before. After meeting Dana, he started training with me.”
“Camping wasn’t far away. Just him [said] Let’s move the coach and pad. And I go, why? And he just goes to work. And I go, bullshit, you might be thinking about it. And he goes, no, no, I just want to train. I’m okay, go anything, anything. I don’t care, train you anyway, it doesn’t matter. He wants to fight, he doesn’t want to fight, I train him whenever he wants. “
“If it was right, he felt interested in a potential match. I felt it. If not, he asked me to train him. I don’t think it is. But after playing what happened, I don’t think I’m interested anymore. And I could be wrong, but I don’t think so. “
It’s never fun to have Habib back in Dustin
“No, no. You see, Dustin is a great person and I wish him all the best. It would be a little cool to see him and Gaethje fight. Two classes of action, see which one is better. please.”
