Conor McGregor has come up with the most Conor McGregor excuse possible for his loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229.
Ahead of their fight in October 2018 a bitter and ugly rivalry between the two men built up, which included McGregor's infamous attack on a bus Khabib was on.
The rivalry got even uglier during the post fight brawls but during the UFC 229 main event it was pretty one sided, with the Russian eventually winning by tap out.
Khabib next faces Justin Gaethje in October, something UFC commentator Joe Rogan is looking forward to, calling the interim lightweight champion the Eagle's 'most dangerous challenger.'
McGregor, who is currently retired from MMA, clearly wasn't happy at being ruled out as the champ's 'most dangerous challenger.'
Replying on Instagram the former two weight champ claimed that he wasn't a danger in the octagon that night because he'd had a few too many the night before and was feeling the effects of a hangover when the door shut behind him.
Time is running out for McGregor to get his revenge on Khabib, and prove what he can do when fighting sober, as the Russian might only have two fights left in his career.
The 31-year-old has reached a record of 28-0 in MMA and, according to his coach, the plan has always been to get to 30-0 and then retire.
With Gaethje up next, McGregor would have to be the last fight of Khabib's career and the UFC champ hasn't exactly been happy with the idea of facing his foe again.
Dana White admitted earlier this week that he'd be willing to give Khabib a fight with UFC legend Georges St-Pierre for his final fight, which would be massive.
It seems that the Canadian is more than up for that fight and even the Russian has suggested that it could take place in April.
What a way that would be for Khabib to bow out. Who wins, Khabib or GSP? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
