Dana White spoke with TMZ revealing that Conor McGregor's next fight will most likely be a rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov.
TMZ Sports talked to Dana White outside T-Mobile Arena in Vegas after McGregor DOMINATED Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone on January 19th 2020, and asked him who the Irish celebrity wants next. What came next is a not so shocking comment from Dana White:
“Conor wants Khabib. Conor always has a lot of options. He wants Khabib, that’s the fight he wants, and we’ll see what happens.”
When asked who he wants Conor to fight, Dana Replies:
“I think Khabib makes sense, too.”
Khabib is scheduled to fight Tony Ferguson in April and if he wins, it may set up the Nurmagomedov-McGregor rematch, the fight we’ve all been fantasizing about.
There is a potential issue with the Nurmagomedov-McGregor rematch. Khabib and his manager Ali Abdelaziz have spared no chance to say that the the Dagestani star will NOT rematch Conor.
Dana White and Conor know what they want, and they always seem to get it. Will Khabib hold out and deny the UFC world fans their desire?
