Khabib Nurmagomedov Wants Conor McGregor To Beg For A Title Shot

Early on during the UFC 223 fight week, Khabib Nurmagomedov, who now holds the UFC lightweight title, and a group of teammates essentially got into an altercation with Artem Lobov, a UFC featherweight and close friend and teammate of McGregor's who was by himself in a hotel in NY.

Sadly, it turned out to be perhaps the most chaotic week in recent memory as nothing went right. After a freak injury during media obligations, Ferguson pulled out and Max Holloway stepped in to take the fight and save the day. People love him. Rightly or wrongly, everywhere he goes, people love him. Anthony Pettis was even closer, but apparently, the UFC's offer was too low. We spoke with Justin - one of the top fighters in McGregor's 155-pound division - and he told us Conor's an extreme example of broke fighters who get too much, too soon.

The world knows what happened.

On the latest edition of the Believe You Me podcast, the former UFC middleweight champion claimed McGregor's behavior was unacceptable, but refused to throw the Irishman under the bus "because the world is doing that". He was released on $50,000 bail and is due back in court on June 14th.

"You kind of surprised all of us when you mentioned Georges St-Pierre inside the Octagon", Olivi said, echoing the sentiments of most viewers. He doesn't give a s**t about his fans, that everyone flew from Russian Federation. And it's not once.

That means two dollies through the bus next time. Who is chicken here? He's a true fighter, he's a true champion. He is dominant and it will take someone extremely special to take that belt from his waist. Iaquinta also had the sting of knowing he wouldn't be the official champ since he weighed in.2 pounds over the championship limit - because his official weigh-in came when he thought he was still fighting Felder and getting the one-pound allowance for non-title fights. In no way am I biased against Khabib, in fact I'm a massive fan of his and he's one of my all time favorite fighters.

"How he even went five rounds is weird to me", Longo said. You said I'm a p***y?

Lobov denied it again, saying: "I didn't say this". "Don't say such things anymore".

An annoyed businessman, who was also staying at the Loews Regency Hotel, said: "I heard he was being rowdy last night".

It's hard to judge who is in the wrong in this whole situation, but it hasn't shined the organisation in a positive light at all. Sound off in the comment section below with your predictions. You want to fight?
