Khabib Nurmagomedov's Dad Tells Conor McGregor 'We Are Waiting' For Moscow Rematch

Khabib Nurmagomedov's Dad Tells Conor McGregor 'We Are Waiting' For Moscow Rematch

Khabib Nurmagomedov's dad has laid down the gauntlet to Conor McGregor by telling him a Moscow showdown is his for the taking.

The Russian UFC star's father Abdulmanap appeared on YouTube channel "Zhivina100" and addressed a potential rematch between his son and the Irish star.

After Khabib swept aside Dustin Poirier in Abu Dhabi last month, McGregor wrote on Twitter: "Book my rematch for Moscow".

And Khabib's dad told McGregor that "he is welcome" in Russia for a rematch.

Abdulmanap said: "If McGregor wants it, then Moscow is waiting for him. He said once that he has more fans here than Khabib.

"We want to host him in Moscow, he is welcome - we are waiting."

Khabib came out on top when the pair fought last October at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The 31-year-old submitted McGregor in the fourth round before a mass brawl broke out after the fight.

A rematch between the pair is eagerly anticipated, but Khabib's dad warned that there is another fight on the welterweight champion's radar.

"Before McGregor we should finish our business with Ferguson," he said.

"Because he had 28 fights, and runs a 12-fight winning streak in the UFC, just like Khabib. Such winning streaks and such big fights have never happened in the UFC.

"So I think Madison Square Garden is a good place for this fight, but we won't fight earlier than March."
