“I would make the case if that man is continuing to dodge this, and then the title should be stripped,” Conor McGregor taunted Khabib on his retirement

'The Notorious' Conor McGregor makes a bold statement that Khabib's belt needs to be stripped off if he's not coming back.

Conor McGregor is completely focused on his fight with ‘The Diamond’ Dustin Poirier but it is nearly impossible for him to ignore the shadow of UFC Lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov overcasting the event.

Dana White claimed after his meeting with ‘The Eagle’ that if someone in the division looks tempting enough to him he’ll come back of retirement. Talking about it in UFC 257 press conference, Conor says,

“I don’t really care, He did not say that, Dana said that. Let’s just get through the fight. All these men are up here, there’s plenty of challenges. It’s a tough business. Things have gone on in his personal life, I don’t wish him any harm.”

“Like I said, it was in 2018, a lot of time has passed. The world knows this fight is not over. The war is not over. The sport needs it to happen. The people need it to happen. I’m not going to chase it if he doesn’t want it. That’s it.”

“I’ll keep my calm and move on. That’s what I’m doing. I’m back here at the 155-pound division. I’ll show the world what’s what over time and that’s it. It begins on Saturday night against Dustin Poirier.”

McGregor is sure he and Khabib will cross the paths again

‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor isn’t sure what will happen when Khabib and he will cross paths again but Conor is certain this will happen. Conor added, “All of those events were 2018, it’s now 2021,”

“What I will say is as long we fight again, there will be no issue. That’s it. If he continues to run, I’m not sure, we’ll see what happens. I would make the case if that man is continuing to dodge this and dodge the commitment of competing again, the title should be stripped and we should be engaging in a title fight,”

“But I’m sure it will happen after this bout. I’m interested to hear what the excuse is or what will be said after the fight, but I predict a title strip.”
