Nurmagomedov's UFC 219 gets attention of champ McGregor



It may have taken a few days, but Khabib Nurmagomedov's domination of Edson Barboza at UFC 219 did indeed catch the eye of the current lightweight champion Conor McGregor.
Nurmagomedov, for his part was unmoved. From the Octagon following the fight, he announced to the UFC that he only needs 60 minutes rest and he would take on either McGregor or Tony Ferguson...that same night. His confidence remained unabated in the post-fight presser "… maybe if the UFC approves, I can fight with these guys in the same night," he said. "I swear, no joke. Maybe I have to stay humble, but tonight, I have to smash these guys and get these guys back, because these guys talk too much when I’m injured."
'The Eagle' has a fair amount of Twitter game himself, and soon the retorts were flying.
McGregor has said that he plans to return to the Octagon in 2018 and Nurmagomedov put himself in the running of potential opponents with the massive win over Barboza. But also waiting for the champ in interim champion Tony Ferguson.

Stay tuned as the lightweight division heats up in 2018.
