In an Instagram post he put up late last month, “The Notorious” went on to attack both Khabib Nurmgamedov and his father Abdulmanap.
But as expexted, the Nurmagomedovs remain were unbothered but they are not letting it to go easily. Khabib’s father said, “Mentally they can’t get (under our skin). In that aspect we are standing firm,” Abdulmanap told RT Sport. “We are even letting certain things pass. But we are not forgiving anything.” He added, “For the hype, for the money, to bury Conor’s era, (the situation) is even better for us”.
He also talked about Georges St-Pierre who has interest to fight the winner at UFC 229.
He said, “Georges St-Pierre, who has never been defeated as a champion at 170 (pounds),” Abdulmanap said. “He came back and took the belt from Michael Bisping at 185 (lbs). It’s always been a dream fight for me.”
“I’ve been following him for a long time. He is a Hall of Famer. He showcased so much in this sport. But if we talk purely sports-wise – we still want the Ferguson fight.”
The fight between Conor and Khabib will takes place on October 6th in Las Vegas.
