Chuck Liddell Believes 'Khabib Is Worried About McGregor Getting Better And Beating Him'

Chuck Liddell Believes 'Khabib Is Worried About McGregor Getting Better And Beating Him'

UFC legend Chuck Liddell believes Khabib Nurmagomedov is "worried" about Conor McGregor getting better and beating him.

A blockbuster rematch between Nurmagomedov and McGregor has been mooted ever since their explosive first meeting at UFC 229 back in October 2018.

But the UFC lightweight champion, who retired last October, remains reluctant to give the Irishman another shot at his title.

And the Russian's stance has aroused the suspicion of Liddell who thinks the undefeated fighter may be wary of getting beat by McGregor.

"In the last fight, I think he [McGregor] did what he needed to do to have a shot at beating Khabib," the former UFC light-heavyweight champion explained via LowKickMMA.

"The problem was he was tired by the third round and he had nothing left behind his punches.

"So, if he can make it through those first two rounds and still have that snap he's got, he can take a shot at him.

"It doesn't seem like Khabib wants to give him a shot... and that doesn't make sense unless Khabib is worried about getting beat.

"Maybe Khabib is worried about Conor getting better and beating him, I don't know."
