Undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is currently set to throw down with mixed martial arts megastar Conor McGregor. The two fighters will face off for the main event of UFC 229 on Oct. 6, live on pay-per-view.
Speaking on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show, Khabib Nurmagomedov recently came forward with his thoughts on UFC President Dana White asking for Conor McGregor’s belts to be present at their recent press conference in New York.
“Dana needs (to stop kissing his) ass. This is what Dana needs. And that’s it. Because how Dana can say, ‘Hey, where is Conor belts?’ He don’t know what happened the last two years? Max Holloway, how many times Max Holloway defend his title?
“He forget two years, if you don’t fight, UFC going to take your belt. And the UFC lightweight division had to move. Dana forget this? Hey, UFC has finally lightweight champion. Now we talk about Conor belt – he loses it. He lose his belt. He lose his mind, not only belt.”
