– Last October, Khabib Nurmagomedov defeated Conor McGregor to retain the UFC Lightweight Title. Neither man has fought since their clash last fall, but Khabib is scheduled to defend his title against Dustin Poirier on Sept. 7. If he gets by Poirier, he wants McGregor to pick up a victory of his own before the two meet again.

“This guy have to come back and make 9-or-10 fight win streak,” Khabib told ESPN (via WrestlingINC). “Then we gonna fight. Come back and show who you are. When he win last time? Three years ago?”

Earlier in the interview Khabib stated, “Even this fight finish, not everything is finished. Just smash people it’s not enough. We have to smash all his team. This is what I say to my team. It will never be finished. Ever. Even if we see (each other) somewhere, we’re going to fight, 100 percent. It doesn’t matter if someone go to jail. If someone has to go to jail, they go to jail. They go to hospital and we’ll go to police. That’s it.”
