Conor McGregor Doesn’t Deserve A Rematch

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight
champion Luke
Rockhold
, a teammate of Khabib
Nurmagomedov
, believes that Conor
McGregor
shouldn’t be given an immediate rematch based on his
performance last Saturday.

Khabib and McGregor met last Saturday night at UFC 229 in what is
speculated to be a record-breaking pay-per-view card by the UFC.
Nurmagomedov’s wrestling proved too good for the Irishman, who was
taken down with relative ease and controlled throughout the fight
before being caught in a fourth-round neck crank.

After the fight, the champion jumped into the crowd to confront
McGregor’s teammate, Bellator MMA fighter Dillon
Danis
who had been antagonizing him from cageside.

Rockhold — who was cageside on Saturday night as well in support
of his team mate — said he wasn’t a fan of the things McGregor did
in the lead up to the fight, particularly the bus attack back in
April when McGregor and a large group of men attacked a bus Khabib
and other UFC were on.

“I think some things aren’t for fight promotion,” Rockhold said to
TMZ Sports. “Conor traveled across the world with a gang of people
and attacked and broke into an arena to attack Khabib with
weapons.

“So, I think people are over-stepping their boundaries and
attacking Khabib on this front,” Rockhold added. “He jumped a cage.
One of Conor’s teammates was antagonizing him and yelling at him
after a fight, which was, you know … you beat your guy, it’s pretty
much time to shut your mouth.”

Rockhold also said that based McGregor’s performance on Saturday
night the Irishman shouldn’t be given an immediate rematch as it
was a very one sided fight.

“The funny thing … a rematch is usually, they’re close fights,”
Rockhold said. “It wasn’t really a close fight. If people wanna see
it, if the UFC wants to pay for it, I know Khabib will enjoy a
record breaking number, like I said before. It’s gotta be record
breaking numbers if he wants a rematch.”
