Khabib Nurmagomedov remains undefeated at 24-0 after defeating Michael Johnson by submission at UFC 205 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. In his post fight octagon interview, Nurmagomedov called out Conor McGregor. “Beginning of the year he tapped like chicken, end of the year he fights for the title, crazy.” He said.
“Irish only 6 million, Russian 150 million. I want to fight your chicken because this is number one easy fight in Lightweight division” He told the crowd.
Conor McGregor went on to defeat Eddie Alvarez later in the night to become the new UFC Lightweight and Featherweight Champion. With Khabib most likely next in line for a shot at the title, he may get his wish to face McGregor somewhere in the near future.
