Conor Doesn’t Deserve Rematch
… Khabib Destroyed Him!

Luke is Khabib’s teammate — and was in the cage to help restore order after all hell broke loose at UFC 229.
Rockhold explained that Conor and his team crossed a line with all of the offensive trash talk — and the bus attack — leading up to the fight … and he understands why Khabib flipped out after his victory.
“I think some things aren’t for fight promotion,” Rockhold says … “Conor traveled across the world with a gang of people and attacked and broke into an arena to attack Khabib with weapons.”
“So, I think people are over-stepping their boundaries and attacking Khabib on this front. He jumped a cage. One of Conor’s teammates was antagonizing him and yelling at him after a fight, which was, you know … you beat your guy, it’s pretty much time to shut your mouth.”
As for rematch talk, that’s where Luke really went in on Conor …
“The funny thing … a rematch is usually, they’re close fights. It wasn’t really a close fight.”
“If people wanna see it, if the UFC wants to pay for it, I know Khabib will enjoy a record breaking number, like I said before. It’s gotta be record breaking numbers if he wants a rematch.”
McGregor has already said he wants a second crack at Khabib — so, we’re guessing the UFC will step up and make it happen.
