Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov, UFC 229: Fight date, time it starts, how to watch and the latest odds

“I think Conor understands that he wasn’t the real champion at 155 [pounds]. He only fought against two lightweights and one of them choked him out. When he took the belt, there were about six lightweights who were stronger than him.


“There are a lot of fighters who deserve a title shot more than Conor. For example, Poirier. He can keep a high pace, he tries to finish opponents. Poirier is the real contender.”
