Despite the fact that Khabib Nurmagomedov retired, he is still active in the UFC world. His team consisting of Makhachev and Usman Nurmagomedov have won titles in their respective categories (UFC and Bellator). “Right now we have current UFC and Bellator lightweight champions,” Nurmagomedov said, as quoted by mmahour.com “This is amazing.
I hear a long time ago when one guy was talking about ‘We’re here to take over’ but we’re here to take over”. 'We're here to take over' but we're here to take over." is the famous sentence of Conor McGregor after he knocked out his opponent in the first round.
Conor McGregor did not remain silent for long, and the reaction immediately followed; “I fight on,” McGregor wrote in a tweet, but he deleted it. “Your fathers plan is never complete because you quit and ran, brother.
God bless. I’m still here if you wanna go again. But your fear of defeat means you’ve already lost. Run from it all you want. We all lose in the end. Death takes us all. I fear nothing but God”.
Michael Chandler wants a fight against McGregor
On the other hand, Michael Chandler wants a fight with Conor McGregor.
He believes that it is the best option for the trio (UFC, him and McGregor). We'll see if Dana White thinks about it, but it would definitely be a great fight. “I do think that’s the fight to make,” Chandler told ESPN.
“When you’re talking about Conor McGregor being on the other side of this two person engagement that we have to get into, Conor’s got every opportunity on the entire planet at his disposal. Does he need to come back? Absolutely not.
Does he want to come back? We don’t know. That’s up to Conor. If he does want to come back, who in the heck else do you want to be standing on the other side of the octagon than me, right now, at this juncture? “We’re the same size, we’re the same weight, I’m arguably — it’s hard, because I’m not a self promoter.
I’m not going to sit here and say I’m the most exciting guy on the roster. I’m not going to sit here and say I am the guy who is a huge, huge, pay-per-view draw. It just doesn’t seem right, because I am me and I’m in mine own little microcosm of Michael Chandler’s little life in Nashville, TN.
But when you look at it on the world stage, and you look at the response, and you look at the die hard, ‘I don’t care who he’s fighting, when he’s fighting, where he’s fighting, I am tuning in and buying the PPV for a Michael Chandler fight,’ those people are coming out of the wood work.
It’s crazy the amount of buzz that is on me, my fight style, my fights, every single time. The UFC knows it, I think Conor knows it, Conor’s team knows it, the whole world of MMA knows it.
