Khabib Nurmagomedov Wants To Smash Conor McGregor For “A Reasonable” Amount Of Money
Khabib Nurmagomedov has the chance to secure his family for the rest of his life if he ever fights Conor McGregor. However, he is angry since The Notorious might be the only one who gets a massive pay raise.
The Dagestani stated that no matter how badly he wants to kick McGregor’s ass inside the octagon, UFC needs to open up their wallet if they want to see the fight between two superstars. He even gives an advantage to Dustin Poirier! (via MMAMania.com)
“I don’t know. It’ about UFC, it’s about Conor, too. They make decision. It’s an interesting situation. If they want to make the money fight, they have to pay me, too. I’m not going to give him chance to use my name and Conor make money, UFC make money and I make $200,000. No way,” said Khabib.
“If they want to me to fight like my current contract, I can fight but then give me (Dustin) Poirier. I am going to follow my contract. but if they want to use my name and use me to make money for Conor and UFC, no way.”
Khabib’s manager asked for unbelievable $10 million dollars, believing Conor McGregor could get $100 million for the fight. Common, this is not boxing! However, Khabib Nurmagomedov still sticks to his story – he wants only two of them, face to face, but money plays the crucial role since Conor doesn’t have a perfect score.
“I don’t need him, he needs me. His last four fights he is 2-2, he don’t fight two years, he doesn’t deserve this title shot. Dustin Poirier is on the line, he deserves this. If they want to use me to make a lot of million use my name, no way. They want a money fight, please pay me.”
Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov are in social media war for a very long period of time. What do you think, will this fight ever happen? After all, you can’t ignore the fact Dustin Poirier demolished Eddie Alvarez at the main event of UFC On Fox 30, while The Mystic Mac didn’t fight for two years.
