Conor McGregor recently took to social media to offer up a detailed break down of his loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov a few weeks ago at UFC 229 in Las Vegas, Nevada, citing his own errors instead of fully accepting “The Eagle’s” dominant performance (see it here).
A breakdown that obviously didn’t sit too well with Team Khabib. As a result, Ali Abdelaziz — Nurmagomedov’s manager — offered up his own synopsis of the championship fight, all while firing his own personal digs at the former “champ-champ.”
First of all the champion @khabib_nurmagomedov is too busy enjoying his life and his family and does not give a shit what anyone says but this is my response to this weak soul, him and his sorry ass team already making some stupid ass excuses.
1) When a man gets held against his will and listens to you gasp for air, hopeless on your back how do you win a fight? If this was a street fight you’d be done. You got out grappled and out wrestled, looking like a little child.
2) Second round – the wrestler/grappler out struck you and hit you with a K Bomb and put you on your ass, taken down and hit with missile strikes from the guard and getting smashed in front of your whole family & crew.
3) Khabib stood the whole round with you to make a point that you’re a front runner. If you can knock someone else you give up like you did 5 times in your fighting career. THEN YOU MENTIONED THIS IS ONLY BUSINESS YOU PUT YOUR WHITE FLAG IN THE MIDDLE OF BATTLE
4th round – God put mercy in Khabibs heart and decided to show the world you’re a tap machine and put on a neck crank that wasn’t even a choke. The proper technique is 2 on 1 try to peel the arm and defend the neck crank. You put your two hands on the ground and your hand only came up when you were ready to tap.
It’s embarrassing, if you would have beat Khabib. It would have been fair and square you win w no excuses. Now If you can’t make us 100m we know you can’t go fight somebody else because your ass is not getting a rematch. Go open a liquor store and focus on selling alcohol especially after all the shit you talked. Just stfu and move on. @ufc #100mill
Talks of a rematch did surface shortly after UFC 229, but they haven’t really picked up much steam. And since both men will be out of action until 2019 due to Nevada State Athletic Commission’s (NSAC) ongoing investigations, talks of a do-over are pretty non-existent at this point.
And that’s okay with “Notorious,” as he has no problem facing the next man in line in order to punch his ticket back to the big dance.
