Khabib Nurmagomedov Posts Livid Rant In Response To McGregor v Alvarez Announcement

On Tuesday morning, the news was officially confirmed that Conor McGregor and Eddie Alvarez would face off on the 12th of November in Madison Square Garden.

It was the news that everyone in the MMA world had been hoping for for some weeks. Everyone that is, except Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The number 1 ranked lightweight contender had been sent two separate contracts for a title shot against Eddie Alvarez at both UFC 205 and UFC 206. However, after the McGregor fight was finally announced in the early hours of Wednesday morning, Nurmagomedov realised what many had suspected from the beginning; the UFC never planned to actually book him against Alvarez, they were simply using him as a negotiating tool in order to get the real UFC 205 main event over the line.

Since the Russian brawler has realised what had really transpired over the past few weeks, he has taken to both his Instagram and Twitter in fits of rage. Posting about the shafting that he has just been a victim of. Khabib called the UFC a freak show and even suggested that, if he was of a weaker character, he would be inclined to quit the sport.

When I signed agreement with @UFC it was sport. Now it became a freak show, or I don’t know how to call it right. Only thing that keeping me in this cracking sport, is that I don’t want to stop on the halfway, I wasn’t raised like this, not a quiter. I’ll keep moving forward InshaAllah.

В то время когда я подписывал контракт с @ufc это ещё был спортом, щас это перешло в шоу, или как это назвать я не знаю, единственное что меня держит в этом гребенном так называемом спорте – это то что я не хочу останавливаться на пол пути, этому меня не учили, я продолжу идти ИншаАллагь. When I signed agreement with @UFC it was sport. Now it became a freak show, or I don’t know how to call it right. Only thing that keeping me in this cracking sport, is that I don’t want to stop on the halfway, I wasn’t raised like this, not a quiter. I’ll keep moving forward InshaAllah.
