Before his long-awaited return to the UFC, Conor McGregor made an ominous warning on Instagram to rival Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Conor McGregor planned to play against his opponent after meeting with Donald Cerrone, and he blew up the “Bloody Rat” by Kabi Numagomedov.
Since October 2018, the infamous demon was kept in a cage after a painful rival Nurmagomedov filed after UFC 229.
In the year of hand injury care, 31-year-old McGregor will make the long-awaited octagonal return to veteran Cowboy Cerrone at UFC 246 on Saturday, January 18.
The Irish star wanted to quickly change the situation and demanded that Nurmagomedov continue his easy title and send a message to the undefeated Russian in his Instagram story.
McGregor wrote with his photograph: “I’m a gangster.”
UFC boss Dana White has confirmed that McGregor could fight Nurmagomedov’s victory over Cerrone, although this match is the second in order of magnitude.
However, Numagomedov defended Tony Ferguson’s lightweight belt in April, insisting that he would not replay the Irish McGregor. The 31-year-old grabber questioned whether his UFC 249 headlines would fight again after Ferguson.
“Okay, we don’t have a plan when this will be done, but I know that it doesn’t go in the mountains, as they say,” Nurmagmedov said in an interview with RT Sports.
This time was very close. I do not want to think about the future. I still need to live in April. I still need to fight. I need to win. Therefore, I do not want to be too far.
“Now we have an adversary, Tony Ferguson, who is a very serious adversary, and I think it is necessary to fight this, and then we sit down and think about what will happen next.”
“We will consider whether there is a place for struggle. Money always has a reason to fight, but do we need it? We will consider this. ”
“Now I feel good. I am 31 years old and this is a great age for fighting and sports. I am still far from my retirement age, but it is approaching. ”
