Khabib Nurmagomedov says Justin Gaethje punched and kicked him harder than anyone else, including rival Conor McGregor

Despite a convincing win for Khabib Nurmagomedov against Justin Gaethje last year, the Russian still felt the force of his challenger.
UFC president Dana White recently revealed the extent of the lightweight’s trash talking before they fought each other at UFC 254 in October, but Gaethje definitely left a lasting impression on the unbeaten champion.

Khabib won with a triangle choke in the second round, though his respect was clear as he told talkSPORT he’s never been hit or kicked harder in a fight than by Gaethje.
This will sting Conor McGregor, who took Khabib a lot further in their fight at UFC 229 in October 2018.
Regardless, if the Irishman does what he has been promising and beats Dustin Poirier in devastating fashion at UFC 257, then talk will inevitably turn to a rematch.
McGregor is desperate to avenge his defeat by Khabib over two years ago
McGregor has been desperate to right what he sees as a wrong against Khabib and White says there’s only one way Khabib will be convinced to come out of retirement.
The boss revealed Khabib told him: “I’m going to watch the two lightweight fights at 257. If these guys do something spectacular and make me want to come back and fight I’ll fight.”
White then talked up the rematch after Max Holloway’s impressive win against Calvin Kattar.
“You can say whatever you want, but Conor McGregor vs Khabib is a massive fight.
“And if Conor wins in spectacular fashion, it would be harder to say he doesn’t deserve the shot.”
McGregor and Khabib are likely to come into contact over the next few days now that McGregor has arrived at the fighter’s hotel in Abu Dhabi.
Any fight between the two of them is likely to make a lot of money, both for the company and each other.
McGregor reportedly earned about £2.3m from the first fight and research suggests calculates that equated to £24,063 per strike landed, compared to £14,808 the Russian earned per striker, despite throwing 64 more.
