Undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and mixed martial arts megastar Conor McGregor recently had their first press conference in promotion for their upcoming fight. Now backstage footage from the recent conference has revealed a new statement from the Dagestan native.
Nurmagomedov and McGregor are locked in to fight within the live pay-per-view main event of UFC 229 on Oct. 6. In promotion for the fight, a press conference was held on Sept. 20 and featured some heated trash-talk from both fighters.
As revealed by Anatomy Of A Fighter, Khabib Nurmagomedov was spotted backstage claiming that Conor McGregor was only trying to promote his new “Proper 12” Irish whiskey rather than prepare for their fight.
All smiles, Khabib Nurmagomedov revealed that he wants to disfigure the Ireland native. “This guy comes to promote his whiskey, but we come to change his face.” Nurmagomedov said.
