Former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor recently had his day in court following a fracas that took place in Brooklyn, New York on April 5. “Notorious” landed a plea deal that has avoided any jail time or blemishes on the Ireland native’s criminal record.
Consequently, UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has come forward with some vicious plans for “Notorious.” Speaking to MMA Junkie, Nurmagomedov offered his thoughts on the matter.
“I can’t believe we’re going to fight, because I really want this guy. Make him humble, a little bit teach him, and not only smash but change his face. I want to change his face. Of course, with face I can change his mind, too.”
“To be honest, inside my heart I am a little bit happy about this. Because if he goes to jail, what happens? How I can catch him? How? Only inside the cage.”
“I want a big drama show. A little bit (of) talk(ing) with him, tell him, ‘I know how we have to do this.’ I have a little bit of a plan. Make him tired, make him look bad. Strong, he’s very dangerous. Everybody knows this. I know this, too. If you think I’m going to stay with him like I stayed with (Al) Iaquinta with my Muhammad Ali jab? No way, brother. No way. I’m going to try to take him down. Even if he defend my takedown, he’s going to be tired.”
“How can we fight after this fight when I change his face? Even if I have a chance for a submission or choke, I’m going to keep punishing, talk with him, enjoy inside the cage. I can’t wait.”
