Conor McGregor Fires Shot At Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Strategy For Justin Gaethje Fight

Nurmagomedov Commented On Joe Rogan's Post Saying He Would Drown Gaethje In The Deepest Ocean

Conor McGregor Fires Shot At Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Strategy For Justin Gaethje Fight

Conor McGregor still doesn’t seem to be a fan of Khabib Nurmagomedov’s game.

Nurmagomedov is set to take on Justin Gaethje in a lightweight title unification fight at UFC 254 which takes place October 24.

And in a recent post on UFC commentator Joe Rogan’s Instagram page, “The Eagle” gave an ominous warning of what he was going to do to Gaethje.

“Justin is a very nice guy and good opponent for me, but when octagon close he have to be ready not only boxing match, I’m not Dustin or Tony. I will take him into the deepest ocean and drown him InshaAllah”. 

McGregor Has Different Interpretation

McGregor, though, had a different interpretation of what Nurmagomedov meant — especially given how his UFC 229 fight with the champion went.

“😂😂 In other words – ‘I’m going to be running around the outside of the cage, sh*tting my pants. And within the first ten seconds of the fight I’m diving at his legs for a good whiff of his jockstrap.”

As he usually does, McGregor deleted the tweet soon after. And if it wasn’t evident enough, he still doesn’t seem to be a fan of wrestlers.

Despite that, he still wants his rematch with Nurmagomedov. More than anything, though, he wanted to remain active as he had big plans for a “season” in 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic along with UFC president Dana White had other ideas though which has resulted in what seems to be a temporary retirement for the Irishman.
