Earlier this month at the UFC 205 weigh ins in New York city, Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov got in to a heated exchange backstage.
The original footage of the altercation was not of the best quality but thankfully a new video has surfaced which shows exactly what was said between “Mystic Mac” and “The Eagle” on November 11 (watch that above).
Of course, Conor McGregor went on to make history at the UFC 205 event when he scored a second-round knockout over Eddie Alvarez to become the new UFC lightweight champion and the first fighter in the promotions history to hold two belts simultaneously.
Meanwhile, Khabib Nurmagomedov also fought at the historic event and earned an extremely impressive third-round submission victory over surging division contender Michael Johnson. “The Eagle” dominated “The Menace” in the grappling department, utilizing some devastating ground and pound before finally ending the contest with a submission. In his post-fight interview, Khabib proceeded to callout the ‘Irish chicken’ (McGregor) for a future lightweight showdown.
Yesterday evening UFC officials announced that Conor McGregor had been stripped of his UFC featherweight title. “Mystic Mac” is not expected to return to the octagon until May of 2017, as he is currently awaiting the birth of his first child.
