Conor McGregor Dissed Khabib’s Fighting Style!

One of the biggest clashes of the MMA world this year is the fight between Khabib Nurmagamedov vs. Justin Gaethje. Previously, the lightweight unification match schedule ran into problems when the news of Khabib’s father Abdulmanap’s tragic death broke out. However, the Russian champion has agreed for another date. Their match is going to take place during the UFC 254 event in October this year. 

As both parties posses different fighting styles, this match-up will be quite exciting. On one side, Khabib’s wrestling is undoubtedly one of the most impressive and dominant among his piers. Meanwhile, his rival also has a wrestling background. However, Gaethje relies on his striking more during the match. Now, the question this time is, will that be enough to repeal Khabib’s tactics?

Recently, Khabib has shared an Instagram post, promising to “drown” Gaethje. This statement makes us believe that he will continue to use similar tactics that landed him an unbeaten record of 28-0. He wrote: “Justin is a very nice guy and opponent for me, but when Octagon close, he have to be ready not only boxing match, I’m not Dustin or Tony. I will take him into the deepest ocean and drown him.”

No Respect

Besides, there is someone who doesn’t like Khabib’s style: Conor McGregor. Previously, Khabib defeated the Notorious back in 2018. When he saw Khabib’s message, the Irishman couldn’t resist butting in, taking shots at the Russian: “In other words – I’m going to be running around the outside of the cage, s******g my pants. And within the first ten seconds of the fight, I’m diving at his legs for a good whiff of his jockstrap.”
