Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov is one of the biggest rivalries in MMA. The history of their rivalry can be traced back to 2018 when Khabib slapped Conor’s teammate, Artem Lobov.
Conor then sought revenge by throwing a dolly at a bus in which Khabib was travelling. All these events ultimately lead to their fight in which Conor took on Khabib for the UFC lightweight championship. Although Khabib retained his title, the rivalry was not over. Post-fight, a brawl ensued between the two teams. Recently, both fighters joined forces to promote Reebok’s new shoes
