Khabib Nurmagomedov Quotes
Khabib Nurmagomedov was penciled in to defend his title against Dustin Poirier at UFC 242. During the pre-fight press conference, 'The Eagle' announced his plans in his signature style - simple words, spoken with humility, but threatening nonetheless.
Replying to a media spokesperson who asked Khabib what his plans were for the UFC 242 event and beyond, Khabib said "I just want to maul people," causing a huge roar from those in attendance in the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Khabib Nurmagomedov said: "I just wanna maul people, this is what I wanna do. You know, doesn't matter, Dustin, Tony or other opponents. When I go to the cage, I maul my opponents. All my life, 27-0. People talk about his (Poirier) 6-win streak. What about my 27-win streak? And 11 years undefeated. I don't underestimate this guy. I know he's a tough challenge. But he's not on my level."
Ever since the footage of a nine-year-old Khabib wrestling with a bear had surfaced on the internet, he had been associated with the animal. By saying that he wanted to "maul" his opponents, Khabib was personifying a bear too.
