Nurmagomedov will fight McGregor for free

Khabib Nurmagomedov insists he would fight Conor McGregor for free, as he continues to taunt the UFC lightweight champion.

Nurmagomedov extended his undefeated streak to 25-0 with a dominant display against Edson Barboza at UFC 219 last weekend and immediately set his sights on McGregor, who is yet to defend the lightweight belt he won in August

The pair were involved in a lengthy spat on social media earlier this week.

And Russian fighter Nurmagomedov has now claimed that money will not come into his thoughts in any negotiations with McGregor’s camp.

“I don’t need money. I need only real fight. Fight for the title. I don’t fight for the money, I fight for my legacy, I fight for history, I fight for my people. That’s why I am here,” he told TMZ.

“He fight with only like 45-years-old Floyd Mayweather or marijuana guy who lose 10 times in UFC, Nate Diaz. You know, this is crazy.

“He has to defend his belt.”
