In the last days, Khamzat Chimaev not tired of challenging Conor McGregor on social media, even revealing that he traveled to Ireland to beat him. This is true for everything he had said during his rivalry with Khabib Nurmagomedov. “True story: I flew to Ireland before the fight with Khabib to beat up Conor McGregor for what he had said of our honor, but I was not allowed to enter the country. You need a lot of security, Conor McGregor. Weak man, “he stressed.
Until now, the Irishman had not responded in any way. There would be no point in doing so because they obviously are not going to face each other in the Octagon of UFC as soon. Anyway, McGregor accepted on Twitter. The former World Lightweight and Featherweight Champion did not clarify who he is referring to, but it is obvious that it is a response to Chimaev. However, it still seems nonsense that he is ready for this fight. In fact, many of his followers are answering him that who he has to think about is the same Khabib.
The company’s president, Dana White, was asked by TMZ Sports about whether they could make this fight. “Probably not, but who knows?” Was what he said. It’s crazy to think that a star like the Irishman could face a fighter who, while undefeated, has only played two fights in UFC. But, you never know what can happen in a crazy world of Mixed Martial Arts. At the moment, Conor McGregor accept and that is undoubtedly an important point to begin to consider this combat.
“It was for Khamzat. He published: ‘I want Nate Díaz, Jorge Masvidal or Conor McGregor‘. AND McGregor He said: ‘I accept’ “, were the words of Dana White, making it clear that both would see the faces inside the octagon. Even without confirming it in the papers, it is not known if it will actually take place or if it will only be on social networks. If it were to happen, it would be the return of one of the legends of Mixed Martial Arts: the Irishman who stood out as nobody in UFC.
“I’m getting bored. Please, Dana White, give me Nate Díaz, Jorge Masvidal and Conor McGregor on the same night. I can crush all these guys … I’m not bragging, I’m just confident. I understand that they don’t want to fight me ”, he had said Khamzat. There seems to be no other way to look at this, claiming that McGregor accepted the challenge of Chimaev. But although the Irishman did not want to clarify it. The same denied that it was a message for the Swedish fighter, but did not tell who it was for. Either way, it looks like the challenger is going to have to wait a little longer to get this match.
