For the most part, Khabib Nurmagomedov let Conor McGregor do all the talking in the build-up to UFC 229. The UFC lightweight champion ended up doing his talking inside the cage - and not just with his dominant performance, either.

Check out this video from Round 2 in which Nurmagomedov is heard taunting McGregor while he pummels him with ground-and-pound (via Twitter):

We're talking!

Let's talk now!

Let's talk!

Let's talk now!

Let's talk!

That's actually pretty scary.

At the end of the round, you can hear McGregor tell Nurmagomedov, "It's only business." As if McGregor is trying to level with him to not take the fight too seriously? But it was too late by then. Given the bus attack and all the trash talk Nurmagomedov had to deal with leading up to the fight, he was past the point of no return.

Nurmagomedov would go on to submit Mcgregor in the fourth round with a neck crank and then start a melee immediately afterward by jumping the cage fence and going after McGregor's cornermen.
