Fans Claim Khabib 'Humbled' Conor McGregor After His Press Conference With Cerrone

Fans Claim Khabib 'Humbled' Conor McGregor After His Press Conference With Cerrone

UFC fans are adamant that Khabib Nurmagomedov lived up to his word and 'humbled' arch-rival Conor McGregor.

The 31-year-old lightweight champ clashed with McGregor at UFC 229 in 2018 and successfully picked up a sensational submission victory in their blockbuster fight.

And McGregor, who will make his stunning UFC return this weekend, was a much more humble figure at his press conference with Donald Cerrone.

The Irish superstar, 31, 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 have flocked to Twitter and are insisting that Khabib has turned McGregor into a humble man.

Khabib, who will fight Tony Ferguson in a blockbuster clash at UFC 249 in April, vowed that he would "change [McGregor's] face."

The 'Eagle' said: "Make him humble, a little bit teach him, and not only smash but change his face.

"I want to change his face. Of course, with face I can change his mind, too."

McGregor will take on Cerrone in a welterweight bout on 18th January at UFC 246 in Las Vegas.
