McGregor not only wants to win the title at UFC 229, but would also like to turn Nurmagomedov into a human bobble head.
“I think I’m going to turn him into a bobble head to be honest,” McGregor told the Mac Life. “I mean it’s personal but it’s the same. It’s always a little personal but in there it’s just a blank face and a new body. I see him turning into a bobble head when I hit him. I feel his brain is going to rattle when he gets a clatter off me. That’s what I’m keeping in my head.”
The Irishman has picked up eighteen professional MMA wins by KO/TKO, while Nurmagomedov has yet to be defeated.
Whether McGregor turns Nurmagomedov into a human bobble head has yet to be seen, but McGregor is also ready for a five round war at UFC 229.
“I am a veteran now. I will be prepared for five rounds,” McGregor said. “I will be prepared for any scenario and that’s it. I’m well trained, I’ve put in the work and we’re confident going in no matter where it goes.”
UFC 229 takes place on Saturday, October 6 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada with Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
