Conor McGregor joined Conan O’Brien ahead of his title fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 on Saturday night. He predicts a devastating knockout because according to the Irishman, Nurmagomedov is “slow and flat footed.”
McGregor also says that Nurmagomedov might have grown up wrestling Dagestani bears, but he’s never wrestled an Irish gorilla.
McGregor is stepping into the octagon as the underdog after more than a year since his last UFC fight. This might be his biggest challenge inside of the octagon, but that’s certainly been said of one of his opponents before.
