Just over two years ago at UFC 229, Khabib Nurmagomedov beat Conor McGregor to retain his UFC lightweight title Nurmagomedov beat McGregor 70-59 in big hitting, knocked down McGregor a times, scored three takedowns, had 12 minutes of ground control and subdued the former two-division world champion with a bare back choke in the fourth round Most people consider the fight to be a dominant performance from Nurmagomedov, but then again, Conor McGregor isn’t most people

On Monday, McGregor took to Twitter and opened up about his fight with Khabib, responding to fans and claiming that he actually beat Khabib until he was submissive

I won the first round Out hit him 3 to 1 here Elbows, knees, slaps He held the whole round Round 2 he won This round had the kimura attempt you are talking about I have it kneeling full force in his orbit here and I broke the grip completely A nice shot! I also won 3 and 4 until the trip

On the mula! Mine from the first inning Withdrawn hit 3-1 Elbow, knees, clicks! He held his 2s but I put several knees One to stand after the top, and one from the bottom in the orbit at the kimura attempt Not a scratch end of the turn also I won rounds 3 and 4 until to travel https: // tco / 0B6T7CbHJO

It should be noted that the knee McGregor appears to be referring to was an illegal knee to the head from the bottom in the second round McGregor was not scored for this shot, but lost the round 10-8 on the scoreboards of the three judges

Speaking of the judges, they didn’t agree with McGregor’s assessment of the bout The three judges scored the first round for Khabib, who controlled McGregor for 4:08 of the five-minute round McGregor backs up however he did more damage and therefore deserves the round (according to UFC stats, McGregor landed six important strikes)

Too bad! Hands back forced him to the fence Knee in neck as he shot, after 15 seconds open the bell Heavy elbow right in his temple as he froze after his shot Repeated banging at temple while he tries his mermaid wrap leg Rd was 1 pitiful on his part Rd 2 saved him https: // tco / Pu39GeE4kQ

This isn’t the first time McGregor has tried to downplay his loss to Nurmagomedov Immediately after the loss McGregor was humble in the loss, but over time McGregor blamed both the loss on one lack of dedication and a foot injury Now McGregor seems to be heading for a Chael Sonnen-esque, « I thought tapping meant I lost the round style position »

Yes, not a scratch I relax before I bounce back and bet his brother and cousin https: // tco / lwlFpof4dD

McGregor has competed once since the loss to Khabib, knocking out Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 in January He is said to be facing Dustin Poirier early next year Khabib, meanwhile, submitted Poirier to the last year and is set to defend his title again this weekend at UFC 254, this time against Justin Gaethje If both men were victorious in their fights, a rematch could be next

Respect Brian Ortega reveals how his past encounter with Alexander Volkanovski made him respect the UFC champion so much

Really upset After winning UFC Fight Island 6, James Krause responds to “clown” Joaquin Buckley: “He can get it too… easy job”

I really can’t believe UFC will allow Cormier to work at UFC 254
