“No fighter wants to lose like Conor Habib. I do not like the behavior of McGregor, what he says about religion, about family and country. This is not worth doing. Surely Conor will continue to say these things, but I'd rather not do that. The idea of the second fight between Khabib and Conor is gigantic revenues from paid broadcasts, everyone will watch it, especially after that story. Conor may and may want revenge, but Habib may not go for it. He doesn’t care about money, but about the legacy, and may simply not agree to another fight with McGregor, ”Mendez quotes TASS.
The first match between Nurmagomedov and McGregor took place in October 2018 and ended with an early victory for the Russian.
Earlier it was reported that Oleynik signed a new contract with the UFC on improved conditions.
