Khabib Nurmagomedov Is The Master Of Tormenting Opponents Inside The Octagon
BT Sport has spotlighted how terrifying Khabib Nurmagomedov is inside the octagon by uploading footage of him verbally tormenting his opponents.
Footage from BT Sport showed the undefeated Russian superstar in action against Michael Johnson, who he would begin to torment when he floored him.
The lightweight champ repeatedly said: "Give up, Michael. Give up, Mike.
"You have to give up, Mike.
"I need [my] title shot. You know this, I deserve it. I tell everybody, I deserve this.
"Hey, I need my title."

Khabib was relentlessly nailing Johnson with hard punches and elbows as he waged full-on psychological warfare with his opponent.
And the 'Eagle' doesn't only do it to his opponents in the octagon.
While he was preparing for his clash with Conor McGregor at UFC 229, Khabib turned his attention to UFC president Dana White and had some strong choice of words for him.
He told White at ringside: "Hey, hey! I'm going to smash your boy.
"Yes, of course. I know who I am."
Khabib was also ruthless against McGregor during their fight, taking him down to the canvas and asking him, "What's happened? Let's talk now. Let's talk. Let's talk now."
Towards the end of a round, the Irish MMA superstar responded: "It is just business."
But Khabib ensured that he had the last word as he repeatedly told McGregor "Let's talk" as he was held back.
