Khabib Nurmagomedov has really upped the ante on Conor McGregor by calling the Irishman out on his seemingly money-hungry motives.
As MMA fans around the world await news of Conor McGregor’s return to the Octagon, the Irishman recently tweeted a message suggesting that he will make his comeback as soon as the UFC pays him ‘his worth’.
That Dagestani was dog shit the other night you's are all nuts. Game full of sloppy bums asking to be slept. Pay me my worth and Kings back.

However, it seems that Khabib Nurmagomedov is driven by something very different than the reigning lightweight champion as he made some very bold claims speaking to TMZ Sports.
Asked how much he would need to be paid to book a title fight with McGregor, Nurmagomedov replied without hesitating; “Zero“.
‘Zero man. I don’t need money. I need only real fight – fight for the title. I don’t fight for the money, I fight for my legacy. I fight for history, I fight for my people. That’s why I’m here.’
Khabib went on to claim that he is sick of three round fights and would prefer to fight for ’50 or 60′ rounds while he also stated once again that he is willing to take on Conor McGregor and Tony Ferguson on the same night.
‘I need Tony and Conor, same night. I swear. I am not joking. Yes, Tony Ferguson and Conor McGregor – same night.’
