Khabib Nurmagomedov is not impresses with current UFC lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez’s latest win streak. In fact, “The Eagle” is claiming that Alvarez really only has one legitimate UFC victory under his belt.

Here is what Nurmagomedov had to say about Alvarez on Instagram:

So Alvarerez says that I never fight with top fighters and talking about my pro record. I'm not sure where he gets that information, but when I fight vs Tibau he was ranked 15, when I fight vs Tavares, he was considered as best Brazilian lightweight, Pat Healy was ranked 10, when I fight RDA he was #5. My last fight, I suppose to face Tony Ferguson who is ranked #3, but he got injured and pulled out, I asked for any light and welterweight fighter for replacement, including Alvarerez, but nobody accept. But your ass, Eddie, got kicked in first UFC fight by cowboy, second fight you won Melendez by split decision, but all experts believes you lost that one unanimously. Third one you win Pettis by split decision and after that you get title shot. You beat RDA without question. Do you really believe, that with that only one UFC victory, you are great fighter and can dictate your terms? I don't think so. Remember, with or without the belt, I will hunt you down. Your name in my blacklist. Альварез говорит что я не дрался с топами и что то говорит про мой проф рекорд, не знаю откуда он берет эту информацию, когда я дрался с Тибау он входил в топ 15, а на момент боя с Таваресом он считался лучшим бойцом Бразилии, а Хили был на 10 строчке рейтинга, РДА на момент боя со мной занимал 5 строчку рейтинга, в крайнем бою я должен был встретиться с Фергюсоном который занимает 3 строчку рейтинга, но он слетел с боя и это не мои проблемы, на замену ему я просил любого топового бойца как в 70 так и в 77 кг, и в том числе Альвареза вызывал, но не нашлось никого. А тебе Альварез в первом бою Ковбой надрал задницу, второй бой ты выграл раздельным решение у Мелендеза хотя все эксперты считают что ты проиграл этот бой единогласно, третий бой ты выграл также раздельным решением у Петиса и после этого тебе дали бой за пояс с РДА, и бой с РДА ты выграл без вопросов, и вот с этой одной победой в ЮФС и ты думаешь что ты великий и можешь диктовать условия, я так не думаю, и знай будет пояс у тебя или нет я тебя буду преследовать, ты в моем черном списке. #Alvarezwhereareyou ❓

Just last week Eddie Alvarez stated that Khabib was not deserving of his top ranking in the UFC’s 155-pound division because of “The Eagle’s” lengthy absence due to injuries.

“Khabib’s fought once in three years and he’s number one and he decides he wants a title shot?” Alvarez said on Sirius/XM Radio. “The last guy he beat was virtually unranked -€” maybe top 100 in the world -€” and he’s the number one guy in the world. So who says that? Who makes that up? Who appoints him number one?”

Nurmagomedov returned to the UFC at April’s UFC on FOX 19 event where he scored a second-round TKO victory over UFC newcomer Darrel Horcher.
