Khabib Nurmagomedov who is the current UFC Lightweight Champion with a record of (28-0) gave an interview to RT Sport and did the Q&A section.
Khabib was asked what was his most memorable fight in his career and his answer was “I’d say my second to last fight, you all know who it was against.” and that was against Conor McGregor.
Fan also asked a question about his victory which he was most proud of:
“In the last couple of years, I’ve gone out there and won, and it doesn’t bring me any real joy, to be honest, well, with the exception of one fight, let’s say, in that fight, I beat that guy with pleasure, I’ll tell you.”
Nurmagomedov talked about hurting his opponent, that it doesn’t give him the joy to hurt someone but there was one exception and that was obviously against Conor McGregor:
“I had fights in my career where I understood that I could hurt my opponent more, but I’d talk to him, tell him to give up so that I don’t beat him too hard, for example, if I had a painful hold where I could break something, I wouldn’t tighten it all the way. I’d just fix it so that the opponent would tap out because I have no aim to hurt anyone in this sport. Yes, we compete in a very brutal contact sport, but it’s never my goal to inflict a lot of pain on my opponent.”
“If I understand that I’m winning, I don’t aim to hurt someone badly. Well, except for one fight.”
In an interview he also talked about his relationship with his mother:
