See all the celebrities that watched Conor McGregor break his leg up close
Former lightweight champion and consensus GOAT Khabib Nurmagomedov has reacted to Conor McGregor’s UFC 264 performance.
The former lightweight king Khabib Nurmagomedov has chimed in on his arch-rivals UFC 264 loss. Moments after Conor McGregor suffered a freak leg injury that resulted in the fight being called to an end, Nurmagomedov took to social media to both praise Dustin Poirier and condemn his foe.
“Good always defeats evil,” Nurmagomedov wrote. “Very happy for [Dustin Poirier]. I hope you will get the belt end of the year.”
Interesting choice of words from the lightweight GOAT. Hinting that Poirier is the good guy while McGregor the evil one.
Nurmagomedov added that he would like to see Poirier fight Charles Oliveria for the lightweight championship by year’s end.
Nurmagomedov defeated McGregor in the third highest-selling sports PPV event of all-time at UFC 229 in 2018. There is no love lost between the two megastars, and by the looks of it, they will keep us entertained for years to come.
