Conor McGregor Issues Warning To Khabib Nurmagomedov Over Potential UFC Rematch

Conor McGregor Issues Warning To Khabib Nurmagomedov Over Potential UFC Rematch

UFC superstar Conor McGregor has warned fierce rival Khabib Nurmagomedov that he won't repeat the "same mistakes" in a potential blockbuster rematch.

The 31-year-old Irishman clashed with the undefeated Khabib at UFC 229 in 2018 for the lightweight championship.

McGregor was unable to hand the 31-year-old Russian star his first loss, despite winning the third round much to Khabib's anger.

The 'Notorious,' who has been vocal about a rematch with Khabib, suggested he wasn't "fully prepared" for their initial clash at UFC 229.

McGregor told Bleacher Report: "That is a very good question, and I will simply say I was not fully prepared.

"It proves that anything can happen in the fight game. You can trust that I will not make the same mistakes next time.

McGregor claimed that he didn't train properly for the Khabib fight and was far from being in the perfect conditioning.

"I will admit that the fight before UFC 246, I did not train properly and was not in perfect condition," he explained.

"Call it what you want. I am hungry today. Hungry like a man who has not eaten for weeks.

"[...] When I set my mind to something, there is nothing I cannot accomplish. It is that power of belief that makes up the winners."

Both McGregor and Khabib recently reignited their fierce rivalry after they exchanged a war of words in a heated social media spat.
