Following Khabib Nurmagomedov’s win over Edson Barboza at UFC 219, there’s renewed discussion about the lightweight fighting Conor McGregor, and Daniel Cormier’s weighed-in on the subject.

Nurmagomedov used his wrestling and grappling to score a one sided, decision win over Barboza at the event, in what was his first bout of 2017. Although it remains to be seen when and who McGregor fights next, Cormier was asked how he believes his teammate would do, against the light-weight champ on Twitter.

Cormier, meanwhile, is scheduled to fight Volkan Oezdemir at UFC 220, January 20th.
