During the third-round of this past October’s UFC 229 headliner, Khabib Nurmagomedov could be heard telling Conor McGregor “let’s talk now” while unleashing some brutal ground and pound strikes.
When the round concluded, Conor McGregor appeared to respond to his Russian nemesis by saying “it’s only business“.
During his rant, Conor McGregor suggested that what he actually said to Khabib Nurmagomedov at the end of round three was “don’t be b*tching!”.
Check it out:
“Let the record show. I like Paulie Malinaggi. Here is a confrontation between us regarding a picture he was upset about. Yes you heard that right. A picture. I told him here to his face. “Don’t be b*tching.” Common knowledge I would think for a fighting man. Don’t be a b*tch, b*tching. The same thing I said to khabib at the end of round 3. My round. Don’t be b*tching!
Every single round b*tching to the referee. He was even b*tching in the fourth round from mount position. It baffled me.
If anyone should have been saying anything to the referee, it should have been me in that 1st round. That round he held onto my legs for four minutes straight. With zero activity. But a fight is a fight who gives a f*ck. Crying to the referee like a proper b*tch. I was trying to dig my fingers into his Adams Apple. Many individuals in the fight business, I have learned lately, are absolute b*tches. I know you’s are broke boys. But don’t be broke b*tches.”
If Conor McGregor has his way, he will get the opporunity to even up the score with Khabib Nurmagomedov later this year.
With that said, UFC President Dana White would prefer to see the Irishman rematch Dustin Poirier in his next octagon appearance.
