You’re Not Worthy! Conor McGregor Explains Why Khabib Isn’t A Real UFC Title Contender

Following his historic victory over Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205, lightweight champion Conor McGregor gave some interesting insight into potential fights for the future. Among them, the UFC warrior explained that he doesn’t see a fight with “The Eagle” in his future.

Khabib “The Eagle” Nurmagomedov is currently the No.1 ranked lightweight contender, but has been facing issues with weight cutting during his career.

Most recently, “The Eagle” was forced to cancel his co-main event interim title fight against Tony Ferguson at UFC 209 due to weight management issues. The fighter was rushed to the hospital for sharp pains in his liver.

During the UFC 205 post-fight press conference, McGregor said

“Look, he’s fought once in eight years. He ain’t fight too frequent for my liking. For me to commit to something like that, I need solid proof that people are going to show up. And he’s a consistent pull-out merchant. I need to see activity. I need to see consistency. I need to see me. If you want me to come and change your life, if you want me to come pick you, you better have some damn reasons for me to do that.”
