AT STAKE : Undefeated champ Khabob Nurmagomedov’s UFC LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
Hatred between the two fighters boiled over this spring, when Khalib’s camp confronted McGregor’s sparring partner, sparking a tirade by McGregor where he hurled objects at Khalil’s Tour bus. It causing smashed windows and injuries on the bus. The result was charges being brought up against McGregor, who settled on community service and anger management classes. Even the fan bases don’t like each other.
This difference in styles will make for a fascinating fight
Fast forward to last month’s press conferences. The press conferences and the hype for this fight have gone like a typical McGregor bout. Conor has done most of the talking, ripping his opponents appearance and quirks, while threatening to dismantle him in a violent way. Meanwhile the more polite Nurmagomedov, a Russian who has been a trained fighter from an early age has been mostly quiet. Although he hasn’t responded much to the personal attacks,, Khabib Nurmagomedov is known as one of the most ruthless, aggressive MMA fighters on planet.
Below is the tale of the tape on this clash. Should be a pretty frickin’ good fight ….
