He said that under other circumstances, without security staffers and police officers on hand, if anyone said such a thing to his face he'd "slap" his antagonist, but the manager asserted that he did not want to create unnecessary "drama" for his client ahead of the biggest fight of Nurmagomedov's career.

McGregor, who was stripped of the 155lb crown because he had not fought since winning the belt in November 2016, believes their forthcoming showdown will not resolve anything.

Khabib has been saying in various interviews that he plans on making McGregor exhausted and humble, and that is what I expect. "If somebody is late that's his problem".

As if it weren't any more obvious, Nurmagomedov explained that he wanted to get everything started on time because he is focused on his weight cut, which meant he wanted to stick to his "weight cut day".

Conor showed up nearly 30 minutes late to the event in Las Vegas - blaming insane traffic.

After 15 minutes of answering questions while the crowd attempted to drown him out, the native of Russian Federation delivered on his threats to leave when McGregor never showed. I have to make weight. I did not plan this, I tried to get here.

"15 minutes I'm here, this guy didn't come, this is disrespect. have a good night", he said.

Although Nurmagomedov enters the event as champion, McGregor had the belt prior to him and never was dethroned inside the octagon.

"The traffic is heavy, there must be a McGregor fight!"

While no longer the centre of attention following Ronaldo's arrival at the Allianz Stadium, the 24-year-old remains a key part of Massimiliano Allegri's squad.

"I am coming to put a hole in this man's skull", he said.

Nurmagomedov, who is 26-0 and making the first defence of his title on Sunday, believes he's ability to stay composed in the face of McGregor's wild taunting has the former champ anxious.

"I would be interested in an Anderson Silver bout. He thinks whiskey gonna help him?"

McGregor (21-3) was ruthless in how he spoke about both Nurmagomedov ("the little chicken-jawed rat that he is") and his manager Ali Abdelaziz ("he's an informant and a f--ing snitch terrorist and I'd like to fight that rat bastard"). "I always say you should aim for peace, but if you can't aim for peace, aim between the eyes, and that's it".

"I think I'm going to turn him into a bobblehead if I'm honest", he told The Mac Life. "This is never over; never, ever, ever over".

"When a guy makes 100million U.S. dollars you don't know whether he's ever going to fight again", White said.

Nurmagomedov had earlier been given a hostile reception from a largely pro-McGregor crowd and appeared to cut his session short in order to remonstrate with his foe's supporters.

His marketability is nearly unrivalled in the fight game - something further illustrated by his remarkable bout previous year against undefeated champion Floyd Mayweather.
