"How [does] he deserve a rematch? Like, he tap. He beg me, 'Please, don't kill me.' Now he talk about rematch?"
McGregor, 32, made his long-awaited return to the octagon with his sensational first-round victory over Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 in January.

Khabib recently hinted that tensions with McGregor have started to cool down and named one important condition the Irish superstar needs to meet to secure a rematch with him.
