Khabib Keeps It Real When Asked About Conor McGregor's Defeat, Says 'Something Superior' Caused Leg Break
Khabib Nurmagomedov says he really 'enjoyed' the UFC 264 main-event and believes 'something superior' caused Conor McGregor's sickening leg break against Dustin Poirier.
Nurmagomedov pointed to divine intervention when asked about his arch-rival's defeat last weekend.
The former UFC lightweight king broke down McGregor's second straight UFC loss by claiming 'God' will always make you humble.
That's in reference to the way the Irishman acted in the build-up to his clash with 'The Diamond'.
'The Eagle' told MMA Junkie: "(There's) always (going to) be there something superior - more powerful - than we have."
He added: "Sometimes when people become, 'I'm this, I can do this. I'm smart because I'm strong.'
"God always going to make you humble. I saw yesterday or two days ago, I saw his coach's interview like, 'I don't understand how this happened. He's a strong young, strong man and he broke his foot, I don't understand.'
"Everything from God. You have to become humble. When you become rich, when you become strong, when you become famous and then you think this is because of myself? God going to make you humble."

Very happy for @DustinPoirier I hope you will get the belt end of the year
Nurmagomedov continued by expressing his happiness for Poirier and believes the American deserves to be the UFC lightweight champion.
"I really enjoy this fight," he continued.
"I'm really happy with Dustin Poirier. I think he deserve title shot, and I think he deserve to be UFC lightweight champion right now."
Poirier is riding an impressive three-fight winning streak which, of course, includes two scalps over the 'Notorious'.
He is in line to challenge for UFC gold, with a fight against 155lbs champion Charles Oliveira supposedly in the works.
As for McGregor, he is set for a spell on the sidelines after undergoing surgery on his leg.
