Khabib Nurmagomedov surprised many with his statement that he did not know who the mega-popular rapper Drake was, before the match with Conor McGregor “Honestly, I swear I don’t even [know who Drake was]… before when he was on the corner of Conor [McGregor], people said this guy is very famous.
I swear I didn’t know this guy,” he told the Full Send podcast, as quoted by mirror “I don’t know this guy like they say. Maybe I hear his music somewhere in street or something but I didn’t know this guy”.
Khabib Nurmagomedov came easily to victory against Conor McGregor, who was the biggest star until then. However, Khabib did not expect to finish the job so quickly. Although most expected a real war, and a fight that would last until the very end, things did not turn out that way.
Khabib Nurmagomedov on the fight
Khabib showed dominance, was better and in the end deservedly won "First of all, I was preparing for war. I come inside the cage, I fight with this guy, and he tapped. I'm like, 'Why I come here? Why I train so hard for this? "You're going to tap easily like this?' I just take his chin, you know, and he tapped.
This one make me upset too, you know, because I accept more than what I find inside the cage... I remember someone from his corner said something and it was crazy emotional. Khabib believes Conor was lucky because the judge existed in the ring.
He was expected to fight again but Khabib decided to retire and end up with the UFC "I'm not going to say I am proud of something like this, at the age of 33-years-old I can say I wouldn't have jumped into the crowd now.
I am like 'okay this party is not finished' "I don't really remember but who cares, I think he was happy because what would have happened if the referee wasn't there?"
