McGregor had some choice words for Nurmagomedov and called him an elephant. McGregor said, “I’ll tell you what he’s looking like an elephant. He’s looking like a little fat elephant at the minute, you know, he’s enjoying himself. I don’t think he made weight the last time either out here To be honest, I was very skeptical on the scales very, very, very fairly unusual behavior.”
Surprisingly, TheMacLife later removed that part from their released video. Maybe they wanted to avoid any unwanted controversy ahead of an important fight for McGregor.
Nurmagomedov, on the other hand, is currently enjoying life after choking Justin Gaethje in a bid to defend his belt at UFC 254. The champion is seemingly retired.
The rivalry between the two biggest superstars has been unmatched in the UFC. McGregor just reignited the flame with the hilarious rant about his counter-part.
McGregor has made it very clear since their first fight that he wants another shot at the Russian. But with Nurmagomedov’s retirement, those hopes looked thin. UFC President Dana White, though, wants to pursue the Dagestani to return to the sport.
A rematch will be a great spectacle, considering how motivated and focused the Irishman is at the moment. But first, he has to get past Poirier on January 23.
Everyone wants to see the sport’s two biggest names fight and it will generate a huge amount of revenue for the UFC too. What do you make of Conor McGregor’s recent comments? Let us know below.
