Khabib Nurmagomedov slams Conor McGregor for assaulting an elderly gentleman

UFC 229: Khabib v McGregor Press Conference

Khabib Nurmagomedov has made his feelings known on the latest fracas involving Conor McGregor.

He’s without doubt certain that the Irishman should be in prison for striking a blow between the victim’s forehead and ear.

The video is watchable online now, which makes it likely that most sports fans have probably already viewed the clip. Notorious unleashed a brutal punch that connected with the temple of the elderly man at the bar of a pub in Dublin.

You won't believe what enraged McGregor and provoked him to behave in such a disgraceful fashion.

The ageing chap turned down his offer to drink a shot of Proper Twelve whiskey.

Khabib, who’s currently getting himself in peak physical condition for his titanic UFC 242 showdown against Dustin Poirier, had this to say about the incident: "These people, they have to go to jail. I told you, this guy have no class. No respect.

"This is very bad for sport. Some things he doing good for sport, but right now he without his mind. He lose his mind. It's crazy.

"Government have to smash him. This is my opinion. 'Cause I'm really, really mad about this video. I don't understand how you can punch old man."

What makes this shameful attack on the frail man all the more disappointing is that McGregor has form. 

His record of violence outside the Octagon speaks for itself; this fresh episode in a catalogue of horrors is simply another example of McGregor’s brainless behaviour. 

In addition, the Eagle pondered out loud what carnage McGregor is capable of causing the next time he loses his temper. 

”Today he punches, like, old guy. What's gonna happen tomorrow?"
