UFC legend Khabib Nurmagomedov has declared his victory against Conor McGregor was the best of his career.
The 33-year-old, who has recently been inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame, beat his rival in October 2018 via a fourth round submission.
In what was the most eagerly-anticipated UFC fight in history, McGregor hurled a metal trolley through the window of a bus transporting Khabib just months prior.
The duo's dust-up at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas remains the highest-selling pay-per-view show in the company's history.
And Khabib, who retired in 2021 with a perfect 29-0 record, has stated no victory was as sweet as when he forced the Irishman to tap out in their lightweight title fight.
Appearing back at the venue for his Hall of Fame induction, the Russian recalled his win over McGregor.
