Khabib Nurmagomedov Blasts Conor McGregor Over Alleged Sucker Punch Incident
By FCF Staff
Khabib Nurmagomedov has blasted rival and former opponent Conor McGregor, following the release of a video, which allegedly shows the star sucker punching an elderly man.
McGregor has been dominating headlines, after the release of the aforementioned video, which captured the alleged incident in a Dublin pub this past April. Since then, TMZ spoke with Nurmagomedov, and the UFC’s lightweight champ had this to say about McGregor (quotes via MMA Junkie):
“Some fans sent me a message (and) said, ‘Hey, you remember when he tried to give you his whiskey, like alcohol, and you didn’t take it? But why he don’t punch you now he go crazy with old people? I don’t understand this. I think like this, people have to go to jail.
“I told you guys, this guy has no class, no respect, this is very bad for sport,” Nurmagomedov said. “Some things he’s doing (are) good for sport, but right now he’s without his mind. He lose his mind. (The) government has to smash him.
“Ireland government, where are you guys? Send him location. Send him location, and that’s it.”
Nurmagomedov, who submitted McGregor last October at UFC 229, is scheduled to fight Dustin Poirier at UFC 242, September 7th.
