Conor McGregor compared Khabib Nurmagomedov with a "little rat"

Conor McGregor compared Khabib Nurmagomedov with a "little rat"

Irish fighter Conor McGregor (pictured) stated that former UFC heavyweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has achieved nothing in sports.

"To be honest, I don't think about Khabib. In sports, he did nothing. This is my opinion. And now he ran away from me, slipped away like a little rat", - said the former UFC champion in two weight categories in an interview with the British TV channel BT Sport.

It's worth reminding that McGregor met Nurmagomedov in the ring in 2018. The Irish athlete lost after a choke hold. The Russian then defended his UFC lightweight title for the first time. In the same year, Nurmagomedov refused to take revenge with the Irishman, despite the proposed fee of $ 15 million.

Note that on July 10 in Las Vegas a fight will take place between McGregor and the Americans Dustin Poirier. Commenting on the upcoming fight, the Irishman said that Poirier would be "carried away on a stretcher" from the ring.
