“There’s been a lot of talk about this Khabib fight and it seems to be brewing towards this one,” said Roddy on The BBC MMA Show. “You earn the chance to fight Conor. You have to be worthy to fight him. Khabib is doing very well fighting-wise. I see holes in his game but he’s building a big ruckus. He’s calling [Conor out] now and people are getting behind him and it’s starting to build, and once it gets to that tipping point, I’m sure we’ll see that fight.”
Roddy even claims that McGregor is willing to fight Nurmagomedov in his home country of Russia.
“Conor’s a mad thing,” Roddy said. “Conor turned around to me just after the Mayweather fight and said, ‘There’s talk of me fighting Khabib. I might do it in Russia.’ Then he says to me, ‘We’ll do it like Rocky. We’ll go to Siberia and we’ll train in the snow. I’ll get one of those yokes to put on my shoulders to get the lats’. I was crying with laughter. He was serious. Dead serious. Conor does mad things. That’s what we love him for. There’s not many people who would do that. It would be an exciting fight. I don’t know what’s going to happen next but I would like to see it.”
If the super fight were to come together in Russia, it would mark the first ever UFC event in that country.
