Khabib And Cormier Get Into Hilariously Heated Argument Over Who Paid For Dinner Eight Years Ago

Khabib Nurmagomedov and Daniel Cormier had a full-blown argument over who paid for dinner eight years ago after the UFC heavyweight champion asked him to hook up a training session in Dagestan.

Both fighters are in training camp for their upcoming title bouts and ahead of 'DC's championship contest against Stipe Miocic, he asked Nurmagomedov to sort out training in Dagestan.

However, when the UFC lightweight king asked who was paying it for, all hell broke loose between the two American Kickboxing Academy teammates.

"DC came into AKA and asked Khabib to hook some of his team up with training in Dagestan. Khabib asked who was paying for it. Two seconds later, they're arguing over who paid for lunch eight years ago. This kind of thing happens regularly," Brett Okamoto tweeted accompanied with a brilliant video.

Nurmagomedov, on the other hand, will return to action for the first time since beating Conor McGregor on September 7 at UFC 242.

He faces interim-UFC lightweight champion Dustin Poirier, but a rematch with the Irishman continues to linger in the background.

UFC president Dana White has even said that he could "absolutely" see another meeting between Nurmagomedov and McGregor.

"Conor wants that fight. Conor wants the rematch with Khabib," he said.

"All these guys have been fighting, again, this thing's going to play out this weekend and then Sept. 7 in Abu Dhabi, and then we'll figure out what's next for Conor.

"I could, I absolutely could [see a rematch]," White said when asked about the possibility of Nurmagomedov vs. McGregor 2.

"He's training," the UFC boss said about McGregor. "Obviously we'll sit back and we'll watch how this whole thing plays out with these fights and see where Conor fits in and what he wants to do next."
