The conflict between Mac Gregor and Nurmagomedov is exclusively in the media environment. This is the same advertisement as posters or announcements of a possible battle, and, what is very important, advertising is absolutely free.
If there was a real conflict between them, it would have been resolved long ago. It could have happened in court, in a closed ring - yes, anywhere. But! After all, no one sees this, and immediately after permission they will stop talking about it. Therefore, both continue to stir up the interest of the press in their personalities and in the "growing" conflict between them.
Any statement of this kind in the press or on some media resources should not be regarded as anything other than advertising. Just think for yourself: for a while, two fighters continue to simply shake the air! No real action follows. If not, because no one will pay for this, and any actions that may entail real losses are not beneficial to both parties.
That's the whole conflict. Two men warm up the audience before the fight, exchanging words and "throwing plates". Everything for the money.
Nurmagomedov is an invincible fighter, with a record of 25-0. Last year, he was supposed to get a bout for the lightweight title, but then-champion Eddie Alvarez chose to fight Conor in a Champion versus Champion match. Conor knocked him out. Khabib ran into him that evening, challenging him to a fight. Since then, he began to play the offended card, they say he is the best fighter in the promotion, Conor is afraid of him, he is not given the title and, in general, “zis is namba van bulshit”. Conor agreed to a fight with Mayweather, and then completely left in connection with the birth of his son. As a result, a fight for the interim champion title took place between Ferguson and Lee. Won first. By the way, Tony and Khabib had to fight four times. The Dagestani dropped out twice due to problems with weight reduction, once Tony. Everyone was delighted when they announced the Nurmagomedov vs Ferguson title fight, which will take place today. Dana White said that as soon as the fight begins, Conor will lose the title. Last week, Tony was injured and was replaced by another fighter.
And yesterday (or the day before yesterday) Khabib decided to "talk" with Conor's teammate, Artyom Lobov, who slandered him in an interview. Nurmagomedov, as a true magician, accompanied by 10-15 people, found Artyom in a hotel, surrounded, Khabib began to dominate and slapped him in the face, after which Artyom was taken away. Conor found out about this and ran to take revenge.
Khabib was already sitting in the departing bus when the Irishman broke the window with a cart and began to provoke a fight.
Khabib was not released through the door, he did not resist and stayed on the bus while Conor later surrendered to the police. Nurmagomedov, already from a safe distance, said, “Go 1 to 1, or 10 to 10. Name the place and time and in general it was necessary to get on the bus, and not stand outside.”
True, Conor's license may be revoked , but that's a completely different story.
Connor and Khabib are # 1 and # 2 on the list of the UFC's most fucked-up fighters. A good half of MMA fans dream of a fight between them. And since Connor never does anything without benefit for himself, this conflict, in my opinion, he started for purely marketing reasons - the promotion of one of the most anticipated fights in mixed martial arts began. Well, and you need to remind yourself of your beloved, of course. Little has been heard about the best-selling champion of the most spectacular promotions after being whacked by Floyd Mayweather. And this is for not eating good
