Khabib mocked rematch offer from McGregor. He blatantly said that McGregor begged him so that he would keep McGregor alive. After meeting in UFC 229, there was an after brawl and the incident has not been forgettable since then.
Khabib took on Mcgregor in October 2018. And he managed to win the fight in the fourth round. McGregor himself has been attempting to get a rematch. As we know, he recently made his comeback in the UFC with his victory in January. Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone was his first opponent this year. But he managed to win in only forty seconds. So, it is sensible that McGregor is confident enough to ask for a rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Meanwhile, Khabib has been preparing for the upcoming UFC 249 which places him to fight against Tony Ferguson in New York on April 18. It is going to be an epic fight happening this year. If you’re a big fan of Khabib, make sure to circle your calendar so that you won’t miss the chance to see your favorite fighter on the screen.
Responding to McGregor rematch offer, Khabib does not do it well. He said that his rival did not deserve to make a rematch against him.
Khabib also stated that in the last three years, McGregor only won once in the amateur match. Of course, no matter if we see it from different angles, it does sound like KHabib is mocking McGregor. Well, it is not the first time Khabib mocks McGregor. Long story short, McGregor was the one who started the feud between them. McGregor blatantly brought up religion, race, and family issues in the conference.
Khabib won that time. It is probably for the best. Russia remembered that Khabib was able to shut McGregor down through his lock in the fourth round. Khabib said that McGregor was giving up, begging to live. So, how come Khabib will accept his rematch challenge?
Back then, we remember that McGregor spitted some harsh and dirty words. But he made a promise that he wou;dn’t do it again, especially in the rematch.
According to our trustworthy source, McGregor stated that he had left that habit and focused on fighting skills. Khabib has his own style, and so does McGregor. Even McGregor made a promise to the media that the rematch will be an epic one. He was expecting a good response from Khabib and he wanted to do it once again.
