Khabib Nurmagomedov: “I’m not ready to shake his hand”

UFC Undisputed Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov talked with RT Sports and here are some highlights of it:

Champion talked about many things but most importantly was door opening for Conor McGregor, before his father said that “If McGregor wants it, then Moscow is waiting for him,” but now Khabib mentions Conor that if he would fight him it would be good for agriculture “I could fight him to benefit my agricultural projects.”

Also he said he wouldn’t shake his hand right now but if he apologizes and accepts his mistakes he is ready to forgive him everything.

“When a person continues to behave this way, it means that it’s his nature. We saw that he recently hit a 70-year-old man. It shows a lack of morality and manners. So I’m not ready to shake his hand until he realizes something.”

Nurmagomedov also talked about Tony’s phenomenal win streak and said he is next in line: “I have to say that Tony Ferguson deserves it more. You have to give him credit. He is on a 12-fight win streak and he deserves it more than Conor. Conor has to come back (and) stop hitting old people. He is a professional fighter. He should come back, win, earn his place and get in line.”
