Mendes has praised the performance of the Irish Boze. He noted that the Irish managed to win in a unique style — McGregor knocked out his opponent in 40 seconds. The specialist also added that he is not surprised by the desire of the head of the UFC Dana’s p. E. white to organize a second fight McGregor with his team — the 31-year-old Nurmagomedov.
According to American, the second match between the athletes is the largest of those that can be held in modern MMA. “He will break records all the most latest monetary battles,” — says Mendes. However, the coach stressed that Nurmagomedov is primarily focused on the fight with American Tony Ferguson. Their fight for the champion title UFC in lightweight will be held on April 19.
On January 19 UFC 246 McGregor defeated American fighter Donald Serrone. The Irishman sent the opponent to a TKO in 40 seconds of the confrontation.
