Conor McGregor – UFC President, Dana White is still opening up the potential for a rematch of Khabib Nurmagomedov versus him. It could happen, if ‘The Notorious’ could win again.
One of the UFC’s all-time best fights is Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Conor McGregor at UFC 229 in October 2018 in the lightweight title race.
Before entering the octagon, both camps were already hot. Conor McGregor spoke harsh words to Khabib, who alluded to his religion and country. To the point that, McGregor attacked the bus carrying Khabib.
UFC noted, Khabib Nurmagomedov was so dominant over Conor McGregor. Khabib’s significant strikes, which is 70 out of 119 attacks. Most to Conor McGregor’s head, 58 successful strikes.
In the fourth round, Khabib finishes McGregor with a neck lock. Khabib won which afterwards the situation became chaotic as he jumped the net and attacked Conor McGregor’s team!
Khabib was sanctioned. But of course, finally ‘The Eagle’ can establish itself as the best fighter in the light class.
In 2020, Khabib Nurmagomedov retired after defeating Justin Gaethje at the end of October. His winning record is flawless, 29-0, never losing.
Khabib also decided to quit the UFC, because of his mother’s request, who did not want to see himself fighting again after his father Abdulmanap died in July.
On the other hand, the beginning of 2021, Conor McGregor returns to the octagon. Precisely on 23 January, he will face Dustin Poirier in light class.
Conor McGregor seems to want to restore his heyday. The Irish fighter himself is a former light and middle class champion.
President of the UFC, Dana White again said that Khabib Nurmagomedov could fight again. In particular the rematch against Conor McGregor.
“Conor is now focused on fighting again. If he can be champion again, why doesn’t Khabib rematch him?” he said as reported by ESPN.
Dana White also said that he would encourage Khabib to return to fighting. Of course Dana White knows, his late father Khabib wants ‘The Eagle’ to complete his 30-0 victory.
“I will push as much as possible to fight again. He is still at his golden age, he is still the best,” said Dana.
