UFC fans are eager for Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov to mend fences online and reunite.
Combat sports have always been fueled by intense rivalries, but few have captivated the world quite like the feud between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov. These two larger-than-life figures in the UFC have engaged in a bitter rivalry, both inside and outside the Octagon. However, as time passes, some fans are expressing their desire to witness a truce between the two fighters and see them put their differences aside.
The rivalry between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov dates back to April 2018 when Nurmagomedov and his team confronted McGregor’s close friend and teammate, Artem Lobov. This confrontation led to a series of events that included McGregor attacking a bus carrying Nurmagomedov and other fighters, resulting in legal consequences for the Irish fighter.
The culmination of their rivalry came in October 2018 when they faced off in a highly anticipated bout at UFC 229. Nurmagomedov dominated the fight, ultimately forcing McGregor to submit in the fourth round via a rear-naked chokehold.
Fans who long for a resolution between McGregor and Nurmagomedov draw inspiration from other legendary rivalries in combat sports history. One notable example is the fierce rivalry between Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen.
Their intense feud captivated the UFC middleweight division and is widely regarded as one of the greatest rivalries in the sport. Despite their heated exchanges and personal animosity, Silva and Sonnen eventually buried the hatchet and now maintain a cordial relationship. And recently Sonnen even tattooed Sivla’s face on his arm.
