Conor McGregor accuses Khabib Nurmagomedov’s manager of being a terrorist

Conor McGregor accuses Khabib Nurmagomedov’s manager of being a terrorist

Khabib Nurmagomedov arrived promptly at 3 p.m. Thursday for a scheduled press conference for UFC 229 at the Park MGM Theater.

Khabib was clearly frustrated at McGregor's lack of punctuality but "Notorious" was far from bothered, answering the media's questions for a solid half hour.

The UFC Boss began his customary Conor McGregor super fight hyping on "Jimmy Kimmel live" by stating that he was not hyping the card but McGregor did go to jail after the UFC 223 melee.

It was at that first press conference at Radio City Music Hall where UFC chose to ban the general public out of security fears, Thursday's verbal rematch was set in front of a packed and energetic crowd but it failed to deliver much more than an infomercial for McGregor's new line of whiskey.

McGregor's Irish fans chanted throughout as Khabib struggled to contain his emotions. However, this time McGregor's verbal jabs weren't just aimed at his opponent in Saturday's megafight, but also the Russian lightweight champion's manager.

With that violent encounter offering UFC chiefs a built-in marketing campaign, it was only a matter of time before a fight between McGregor and Nurmagomedov was inked. "(Nurmagomedov is) too easy to hit, too flat-footed, too predictable, I'm going to knock him clean out". "Dig my knuckle into his orbital bone and that's what I'm going to do". I'm only a few minutes late. We saw the staredown in NY (at last month's press conference), I want to see the staredown (on Friday). "I don't want to say we're going to do Mayweather-McGregor numbers but we could possibly do Mayweather-McGregor numbers". This man is an absolute monster on the canvas and there's no other way to put it, with his wrestling being viewed as his biggest attribute in this or any other fight. He didn't say anything the last time. (But) I did not plan this, I tried to get here. He doesn't want to be around these people. I'm gonna change this Saturday night.

Asked whether he would look to make peace with Nurmagomedov and bury their grudge after the might, McGregor drew the biggest response of the day. "Get that man into the sauna and cook him like the little chicken-jaw rat that he is".

"I don't know, we'll see what happens", he said.

"There will never be peace here", McGregor said.

He said that he thinks you might need the money that comes with fighting him, is that true?

Nurmagomedov added: "I know you're going to love me".

Their bout at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas this weekend has been billed as the biggest in the UFC's history and McGregor is looking to make a statement against the person who succeeded him as 155lb champion. "Never, ever, ever, over".

The final press conference ahead of UFC 229 was an unusual affair at the best of times, but it got odd when the Irishman went after opponent Khabib Nurmagomedov's manager in a wild rant.
