Former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov commented on Conor McGregor‘s critical statements about his career.
“How do I react to Conor’s statements about me? I believe that this is only his opinion. I care about the opinion of millions of other people. They know who’s who. I was the UFC champion, I defended my title three times. I have no defeats, I have not lost a single round. Look at how I performed with McGregor, Poirier and Gaethje . They’re all murderers. These guys were at their peak when I fought them.
Three years ago, Conor was at his peak. Between what happened in Brooklyn and our fight in October, he had six months. He prepared very well. His team knew that he would fight with an opponent who trains all his life, fights with bears, never stops and puts pressure on you. He trained for six months.
When I fought Poirier , he was the interim champion, the best fighter. When I fought with Gaethje , he also owned a time zone and was the best. This was their peak. I think that no one can say anything about my career. 13-0 in the UFC, I fought with the best fighters. I don’t care about it, let people decide,” Khabib Nurmagomedov said in an interview with the YouTube channel MMA ESPN.
