Conor McGregor Allows His Stomach Tattoo Meet Real Carnivore Face To Face
It has already been known that Conor McGregor is an animal lover. As well as you know, he has a tiger tattoo on his belly. This time, Conor was invited on the World Cup final by Russian president Vladimir Putin but Khabib Nurmagomedov also attended the same event. The Notorious got here the chance to feed and cuddle a tiger firsthand.

Georges St-Pierre wasn’t that successful with a wild gorilla and had to adopt a subservient posture to escape. On the other hand, Conor McGregor was very calm, collected, and respectful towards the predator. The famous Irish showman also put his tiger tattoo face to face with the real animal! How could The Notorious miss that kind of promotion opportunity?
Khabib Nurmagomedov grew in Caucasus mountains wrestling bears at a young age. Despite he was in the World Cup Final too, he didn’t feel the need to find Conor McGregor and try teaching him a lesson. The situation was completely different when The Notorious threw the chair on the bus where Khabib was present alongside other famous UFC fighters. (via MMAMania.com)
“I thought I’d meet McGregor at the Luzhniki Stadium,” Nurmagomedov said (transcription and translation per Express.co.uk). “But even if we meet now, we still will not be able to find out who is stronger. If there was a cage in the middle of the arena, it would be more interesting. And now something to find out on the street and so on. We are not at that age and not in that position.
“It would be ideal if there were no one around. Or vice versa — to the full stadium, in the middle of the cage, and in it — we. In general, I see no reason to approach him now. We are hospitable people. Let the football look, enjoy Russia.”
We hope the two of them will meet inside the octagon sooner or later. Conor hasn’t fought in the UFC since his victory over Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205, while Khabib is the current UFC Lightweight champion. What do you think, which animal is stronger – would you bet a bear or a tiger?
