Documentary Reveals Conor McGregor’s emotional reaction after loss to Khabib
Khabib defeated Conor back in 2018 in a highly anticipated matchup. The rivalry between the two champions is one of the most iconic rivalries in fight history. The Netflix documentary covers the backstory and aftermath of McGregor’s loss.
McGregor can be seen in the footage sitting in the locker room after his loss at UFC 229. Khabib defeated him in the fourth round via submission. As the result of the fight is announced, the footage shows McGregor sobbing at his humiliating loss.
Khabib had dominated almost all the rounds and tackled him down and thrashed him a couple of rounds. McGregor who has always had a problem with stamina in later rounds couldn’t keep up with the charging Dagestani who caught him in a neck crank. Although McGregor did land good shots of his own, displaying good techniques during takedown. It is irrefutable that Khabib Nurmagomedov outperformed McGregor in that fight.
