Conor McGregor is all set to make his return at UFC 246 when he fights Donald Cerrone. The Welterweight showdown will mark an end to a long layoff for McGregor and he seems focussed on having more fights this year.

One name in particular that McGregor wants to settle the score with is Khabib Nurmagomedov. Conor McGregor vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov happened back in October 2018 with Khabib taking home the win via a fourth-round submission.

In his recent interview with MacLife, Conor noted that he was winning the fight in his book.

“In my mind, round 1, I won round 1. I outstruck him 3-to-1. He had position on the mat but I outstruck him 3-to-1. What did he do in that first round? Second round, look at the lackadaisical approach I had, he was just running around the outside of the cage and he caught that lucky shot and he had a great second round. What happened after that? I win the third round. Even the opening exchanges in the fourth round. I was winning the fourth round up until that trip,” he said.

The Irishman also went on to add that he had a forgettable camp ahead of the fight.

“That was after a horrendous camp where I was so disrespectful to the people that believe in me. So disrespectful to my team with my lack of commitment and I still went out and done that. Then I also landed the final blow of the night on his blood brother and his cousin,” he added.

Regarding Khabib, Conor concluded saying that the Russian can run but cannot hide.

“We’ll come back to him. Like I said, he can run but he cannot hide,” he concluded.
