The Russian taunted Michael Johnson, telling him he deserved a title shot
Khabib Nurmagomedov is one of the most frightening fighters in the UFC.
The Dagestani fighter defeated Michael Johnson at UFC 205 in one of the most dominating performances of the event. Nurmagomedov is hoping to fight Conor McGregor next for the UFC's lightweight title. He is now the #1 lightweight in the division.
During the event, the UFC recorded a programme named; "UFC 205: The Thrill and the Agony", which had ringside footage of the event.
In the preview for the programme, Nurmagomedov can easily be heard speaking to UFC President Dana White in between rounds, looking for a fight against "your boy" McGregor.
He is also heard, almost begging opponent Michael Johnson to give up in their fight. "You have to give up" he tells the American.
"I need to fight for the title. You know this. I deserve it". He sounds like a man possessed.
Even after his win, 'The Eagle' took to his twitter account, to try and push for the fight against the Dubliner.
You Don't have to love me but you need to respect me. 24-0. Conor I know you are loosing sleep already @danawhite— khabib nurmagomedov (@TeamKhabib) November 15, 2016
Khabib has his eyes set on a prize, with determination not seen since Conor McGregor chased Jose Aldo for the featherweight belt. We know how that ended.
