What have the fighters said?
McGregor: “I came back for the love of this to come and shut this man up—a little rat, a little weasel, a little man in groups.
“I have met many of them during the years but when it gets hot, he scours away. I came back for the love of war and I am going to truly, truly love putting a bad beating on this little glass jaw rat.”
Nurmagomedov: “How is he going to fight with me for 25 minutes? This is not Nate Diaz, this is not Eddie Alvarez or Jose Aldo.
“This is a completely different fighter. If you want to stop me, you have to kill me. This guy will have to kill me.”
