Khabib Nurmagomedov commented on Conor McGregor’s loss against Dustin Poirier. He believes McGregor will never return to his best form in the Octagon. Reportedly, McGregor suffered a major setback in his bid to return to the top of the lightweight division after Dustin Poirier knocked him at the UFC 257.
Khabib recently appeared on Magomed Ismailov’s YouTube channel, and he was asked about Mcgregor vs. Poirier’s fight. Ismailov asked Khabib if he thinks Conor McGregor will come back stronger.
In response to that, Khabib said, “Never. There is no way that a man can be at his peak for two times. “I’m not just talking about McGregor. What I mean is a man cannot have two primes.”
Khabib continued, “A team could do it. For example, Real Madrid did it a few times in a row. Teams may have this.”
“But we are talking about us. And one man, on his own, cannot have his peak form twice.”
In his last six appearances, McGregor won only three games. However, the most recent loss came out last month, and he is already back in training again.
However, the loss against the Louisiana native was McGregor’s first-ever knockout defeat in his professional MMA career. And McGregor is hoping for an immediate. Besides, Dana White reveals that they are on their way to settle a rematch this year.
“They both want it. When you’ve got two guys that want the trilogy as bad as those two do, we’ll try make it happen,” Dana White said.
He also added, “This summer, it will happen. These guys are all going to fight it out, we’ll narrow it down to the two guys who will face off for the title.”
