One such big name that congratulated Fury on his second win against Wilder was none other than Khabib Nurmagomedov. Khabib congratulated Fury on his victory against the Alabama native on Instagram. He even suggested that it was a great fight.

Tyson, congratulation, congratulation! It was very good fight! My coach wanna say congratulation” said Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Congratulations, incredible fight, you’re an incredible fighter, an incredible human being, I really liked your style,” said Javier Mendez.

Conor McGregor thinks both Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder are winners

While Khabib Nurmagomedov showed support for just Tyson Fury, his arch-rival Conor McGregor has a different outlook on this heavyweight rivalry.

‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor recently voiced his thoughts on the Fury vs Wilder 3 fight on Twitter.  He said that it was a great fight and believes both Wilder and Fury are winners.

The former UFC ‘Champ-Champ’ highlighted that ‘The Bronze Bomber’ came very close and that it is hard to not praise him.

He added that a difference of 40 lbs in weight is a lot. The Irishman has always had tremendous respect for ‘The Gypsy King’; however, it is clear now that he also has a great level of respect for Deontay Wilder.

Conor McGregor said in a tweet –

“Great fight that. Both warriors, both winners. Hard to not be impressed with Deontay there. Against the much larger man and almost got it done. Great fight. 40lb’s in weight difference is A LOT. Fair play both men there, very enjoyable fights they have had together. Respect,”
