Khabib Nurmagomedov predicted Monday that Conor McGregor’s career was essentially over after he suffered a leg injury at UFC 264 and that promotion of the UFC star is bad for sport.

Nurmagomedov, one of McGregor’s fiercest critics and who beat him in the Octagon, told ESPN that McGregor has shown his true nature in recent years.

“Money and fame show who you are,” he told ESPN. “All the time we hear that money and fame change people. No. When money and fame come, these two things show who you are. And what has [McGregor] done? He hit an old man [in a bar in 2019]. You can see and understand everything he did, it’s just like Dustin [Poirier] said, “This man is a s–t.”

“I saw a lot of tweets trying to support him. How are you going to support this man? If kids, young generations watch him, watch this sport? If you want to promote your fight, promote. If the MMA community is going to support you these bad people, this sport is going to end badly.”

McGregor lost the fight to Poirier via technical knockout with a doctor’s stoppage.

McGregor has promised to come back big from his injury, and Poirier and Dana White have both teased a fourth fight, but Nurmagomedov downplayed any chance McGregor would compete at a high level again, saying: “This guy is ready, but he’s good for promotion.”

Nurmagomedov has been retired for about a year after beating Justin Gaethje in his last fight.

Nurmagomedov was on the receiving end of insults from McGregor leading up to their 2018 fight. McGregor famously insulted Nurmagomedov’s religion and family. After defeating McGregor, he jumped out of the cage to fight the entire team of McGregor and cause chaos at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
