Khabib Nurmagomedov was asked about Conor McGregor and his friends storming a bus carrying Nurmagomedov and other fighters on the UFC 223 fight card in the Barclays Center loading dock.
McGregor was reportedly attempting to confront Nurmagomedov. He didn’t seem at all worried and laughed off McGregor’s wild attack.
Via MMA Fighting:
“I am laughing inside,” Nurmagomedov said. “You broke window? Why? Come inside. You know UFC don’t let you come inside. If you real gangster why don’t you come inside?
“This is big history gangster place. Brooklyn. You want to talk to me? Send me location. We have to talk? I am gonna come, no problem.
“I grew up like this. I don’t grow up throwing chairs at window. This is not my bus.”
McGregor just created more buzz around UFC 223 in 10 minutes than the UFC did in the weeks leading up to yesterday’s media day. If this isn’t a sign that the UFC needs him more than he needs them, I don’t know what is.
