Conor McGregor: Detta gick fel i mötet med Khabib

✅ Den forne UFC-mästaren bryter ner sin titelmatch - och vad som gick snett ✅"Gav honom ingen respekt alls stående"

UFC 229 förblir en av de mest omtalade UFC-galorna på flera år. Utöver kaoset som skedde efter titelmatchen var var det trots allt en av de mest framemotsedda titelmatcherna någonsin och en fruktansvärt underhållande sådan. Både den regerande lättviktsmästaren Khabib Nurmagomedov och den utmanande stjärnan Conor McGregor hade sina stunder i matchen, men i slutändan var det Nurmagomedov som vann två utav de tre första ronderna innan han fick McGregor att klappa ut till en rear naked choke i den fjärde ronden. Nu har McGregor tagit till sociala medier för att förklara var som gick fel under matchen, samt delat med sig av sina egna tankar kring titelmötet.

“Thoughts on my last fight,” skrev McGregor på Instagram. “Round 1. I believe from a sport standpoint, round 1 was his. Top position against the fence. Zero position advancement or damage inflicted. But top position. From a fight standpoint the first round is mine. Actual shots landed and a willingness to engage. Straight left early. Knee to the head on the low shot. Elbows in any and all tie up scenarios. Opponent just holding the legs against the fence for almost the entire round.

“Round 2 he is running away around the cage before being blessed with a right hand that changed the course of the round, and the fight. It was a nice shot. After the shot I bounced back up to engage instantly, but again he dipped under to disengage. That is the sport and it was a smart move that led to a dominant round, so no issue. Well played. If I stay switched on and give his stand up even a little more respect, that right hand never gets close and we are talking completely different now.”

McGregor erkände sedan att han inte hade optimal träning inför mötet. Nurmagomedov är en av de bästa brottarna i UFC och irländaren verkade enbart fokusera på brottning och nertagningsförsvar. Detta visade sig vara ett misstag – något McGregor erkänner.

“I gave his upright fighting no respect in preparation,” sade McGregor. “No specific stand up spars whatsoever. Attacking grapplers/wrestlers only. That won’t happen again. I also gave my attacking grappling no respect. Too defense minded.

“Lessons. Listen to nobody but yourself on your skill set. You are the master of your own universe. I am the master of this. I must take my own advice.”

Trots underläge efter de två första ronderna återhämtade sig McGregor i den tredje. Han förde matchen stående och lyckades med det ingen tidigare åstadkommit tidigare: han vann en rond över obesegrade Nurmagomedov. Därefter begick han dock ett stort misstag som ledde till förlust.

“Round 3. After the worst round of my fighting career, I come back and win this round. Again walking forward, walking him down, and willing to engage,” McGregor explained.

“Round 4. My recovery was not where it could have been here. That is my fault. Although winning the early exchanges in 4, he dips under again and I end up in a bad position with over 3 on the clock. I work to regain position and end up upright, with my back to the fence. A stable position. Here however, I made a critical error of abandoning my over hook at this crucial time, exposing the back, and I end up beaten fair and square. What can I say? It was a great fight and it was my pleasure. I will be back with my confidence high. Fully prepared.”

Det är fortfarande inte klart vem McGregor möter härnäst, men mycket talar för att Tony Ferguson kommer utmana Nurmagomedov om titeln härnäst. Oavsett vad som sker och vem hans ställs mot härnäst så är McGregor redo för vem det än blir.

“If it is not the rematch right away, no problem,” McGregor said. “I will face the next in line. It’s all me always, anyway.”

Det finns flera alternativ för McGregor. Nate Diaz gick miste om en match mot Dustin Poirier, och då McGregor och Diaz mötts två gånger med 1-1 i ställning skulle ett tredje möte säkerligen skapa uppmärksamhet och tilltala bägge herrar. Även Poirier har tidigare mött McGregor men är pånyttfödd i lättviktsklassen – en returmatch mellan dem bäddar för underhållning.

Tror du att McGregor kan vinna en returmatch mot Nurmagomedov?
