McGregor reveals what it took for him to fight Nurmagomedov
Irish professional mixed martial arts fighter Conor McGregor said he suffered a fracture in his foot three weeks before his fight with Russia’s Khabib Nurmagomedov in October 2018.
"I broke my foot 3 weeks out from the bout," McGregor wrote on his Twitter account. "I still marched forward however, and also landed the final blows of the night. On his blood brother."
"I am happy with how the contest went and the lessons learned. In my fighting and more importantly my preparation. Time will reveal all," McGregor tweeted.
On the night of October 6, 2018, Reigning UFC Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov of Russia defeated McGregor during the UFC 229 tournament in Las Vegas, defending his lightweight title with a choke in the 4th round of the fight.
