Khabib's 2018 Prediction About Conor McGregor Seem To Have Come True
UFC fans are adamant that Khabib Nurmagomedov lived up to his word and 'humbled' arch-rival Conor McGregor.
The undefeated star clashed with McGregor at UFC 229 in 2018 and successfully picked up a sensational submission victory in their blockbuster fight.
And McGregor was a much more humble figure in the build-up ahead of his fight against Donald Cerrone in January 2020.
The Irish superstar, 32, hilariously complimented UFC veteran Cerrone and dropped his trash-talking tactics in favour of showing more admiration for his opponent.
McGregor said: "That's one hell of a coat, Donald, I've got to give credit where credit is due!
"I don't know whether you've outdone me here, I've got lining on the inside of my baby here, but that's a damn good coat brother. Is it crocodile?
"There will be blood spilled on Saturday, but it won't be bad blood."
However, fans flocked to Twitter and claimed Khabib turned McGregor into a humble man.
