A fighter of mixed martial arts Conor McGregor mock the record of his future rival Habiba Nurmagomedova, who signed a personal photo in "Instagram" as "Step by step".

MacGregor placed a message with a signature immediately after Nurmagomedov's publication: "Step by step – and you wipe your feet."

The historic encounter of the two hunters takes place on October 6 in Las Vegas. The tickets were sold out in three minutes. Those who could not get tickets are offered to buy a television broadcast of the fight. At the same time it is not yet known whether the battle in Russia will be shown on a public channel.

Note that Nurmagomedov is the most popular MMA-hunter in Russia, he did not lose a single fight in his career and this year he won the title of UFC lightweight champion. McGregor was the owner of this title since 2016, but lost it because he did not defend this title for a long time.

Nurmagomedov challenged Makregor in 2016: "I want to remain modest, but I have to say, what a strong PR machine the UFC has, this is no chatter, Irish only 6 million, and the Russians – 150. I want to fight with this girl Macgregor, "- he said then.

In response to the upcoming meeting, the English hunter Darren Till called the Irish favorite fight.

"For me, the fight between Conor McGregor and Habib Nurmagomedov is the core of the UFC, I am sure that this fight will be held, I saw that Conor was back in the hall, Habib also wants this fight," – quotes BBC.

In August, McGregor was found guilty of attacking the bus in which Nurmagomedov was stationed. For the escapade, which took place in April, the Irish hunter was sentenced to correctional labor.
