Khabib Nurmagomedov trolls Eddie Alvarez and his “embarrassing nonsense”

Khabib Nurmagomedov celebrates

While Khabib Nurmagomedov may be the #1 contender on the UFC’s official rankings, UFC lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez doesn’t think Nurmagomedov deserves a title shot.

Prior to Nurmagomedov’s return to the Octagon earlier this year, where he TKOd UFC newcomer Darrell Horcher, Nurmagomedov defeated Rafael dos Anjos, who went on to become lightweight champ. The win over Horcher extended Nurmagomedov’s professional record to 23-0, and his UFC record to 7-0.

While Alvarez was just 2-1 in the Octagon before getting his title shot, he hasn’t shied away from maintaining that he doesn’t believe Nurmagomedov is worthy of challenging for the lightweight strap.

That hasn’t sat too well with ‘The Eagle’ who has taken full advantage of every opportunity to call out the lightweight champ.
