    Khabib Nurmagomedov reveals what irked him about Conor McGregor and the trash talk

    During a press conference held in Russia earlier this month, ‘The Eagle’ was asked if all the trash talk leading up to the fight disappointed him.

    He said, “Conor’s trash talk? Yes, he had talked for a while (during the fight), but when I started pushing him, he immediately switched to the ‘It’s just business’ mode. I was even a bit disappointed. I expected him to be mentally tougher.”

    The former champion continued, “When I was ground-and-pounding him, talking to him, and he responded that it was just business, it looked like he was trying to calm me down to avoid a real beating, just like a son trying to justify himself in front of his angry father. Psychology is a very strong tool”

    What overshadowed a fantastic display by Khabib Nurmagomedov during the fight was what happened after the fight. Which marred the victory for the Dagestani powerhouse.

    A few years on, ‘The Eagle’ is retired and Conor now faces former rival, Dustin Poirier, next month. The winner of the fight might face Khabib Nurmagomedov once again should he wish to return to the sport for one last defense.

    Do you think ‘The Eagle’ will return for one last fight? And do you think we see a rematch between the two men?

    Khabib is 100% right. Conor needed his gob shut up properly after all the BS he spouted. McGregor didn't just cross the line, he obliterated it with a dragster.

    Khabib is mentally weak himself, for taking religion so seriously.

    I don't know how Khabib remained so relaxed when Conor called Khabib's father a coward. After the fight though he couldn't control his rage

    TBE is right. I like Mcnuggets, but instead of taking his beating like a man he tried to justify his actions in the octagon like a prison prag. The feeble minded cuck continued to spiral afterwards from getting into altercations with fans to punching an old man in the face and so on. I think he's in a better place now, but D.D.P is going to dog walk him

    It’s just business.

    Khabib obviously wants the rematch
