Conor McGregor baits Khabib Nurmagomedov: Here’s my location

In classic Conor McGregor fashion, he has used Khabib Nurmagomedov's own quote against him in a ploy to bait the Russian

Conor McGregor has officially sent Khabib Nurmagomedov his location. 

During a scheduled press conference in Moscow, Russia, the press was all ears as Conor McGregor revealed the timeline for his return to the UFC. While McGregor’s 2020 return to the octagon was the biggest takeaway from the event, it certainly wasn’t the only one.

It was almost inevitable for McGregor not to mention arch rival Khabib Nurmagomedov. The two faced off at UFC 229 after a heated and contentious build-up. McGregor lost the bout via submission in the fourth round, but the violent atmosphere continued even after the fight.

“Location, where’s my location? The Ritz-Carlton,” McGregor shouted. “I’m at the Ritz-Carlton hotel if anyone wants my location. Right here in downtown Moscow. But where is [Khabib]? I believe he is out of the country. I fly in, he flies out.”

That is a reference to a classic Nrumagomedov quote, in which he asked for McGregor to send him a location so that they could fight.


McGregor didn’t stop there either. He called Nurmagomedov a “coward” for contemplating a bout with a now-retired Georges St-Pierre. He also compared how both fared against featherweight turned lightweight Dustin Poirier. All this before taking a hude dig at all of Dagestan, Nurmagomedov’s home region.

“There is no longevity in his career as he does not take risk at all. His last opponent was a former featherweight which I knocked down that man in 90 seconds. It took him 3 rounds to get the job done. So this is an inevitable rematch, we know it’s happening. He can run and he does run. It is in the nature of the Dagestani man to run.”

There is no doubt about it: These two still very much don’t like each other. Is a rematch the only way to settle the score?
