Lomachenko criticizes MacGregor

WBA lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko said that he did not like the provocative behavior of the former UFC champion in two divisions Conor MacGregor before his last fight. At the same time, the Ukrainian noted that it was difficult for immigrants from Ukraine and Russia to take part in the promotion of fights due to poor knowledge of English.

“I never personally met with McGregor and did not talk to him. Is he a funny guy? Yes, but he talks too much. He talks too much before the fights, I don't like it. Nate Diaz? I like this guy, he is a true warrior and does his job.

“Ukrainian and Russian athletes have certain problems with the language. This is similar to the situation of Khabib. He could not speak much, because he did not understand the accent and all the words of Conor,” said Lomachenko.

On October 6 Nurmagomedov stopped McGregor in the fourth round. Before the fight, the Irishman allowed himself insulting remarks about Khabib and his closest associates.
