“A person can die from a grip like that” – Khabib Nurmagomedov admitted that he could “kill” McGregor if the fight didn’t have a referee
In an interview with RT Sport, The retired lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov revealed that he could have “killed” McGregor if there was no referee stopping their fight back in 2018.
“You saw what happened on October 6th. Remove Herb Dean and you will understand what would’ve happened. A person can die from a grip like that. If you want to, I can choke you behind the curtain and you’ll see what would’ve happened,” said Khabib Nurmagomedov.
“When a person strangles you and has been doing this for 30 years, this is a cold weapon. If there had been no referee, what would’ve happened? Herb Dean removed my hand, he removed my grip. We understand everything. We understand what could have been,” added Khabib Nurmagomedov.
