Dana White Makes Interesting Proposition To Khabib Nurmagomedov Involving Conor McGregor

Dana White Makes Interesting Proposition To Khabib Nurmagomedov Involving Conor McGregor

Dana White has proposed that Khabib Nurmagomedov appears on The Ultimate Fighter series alongside fierce rival Conor McGregor should he beat Justin Gaethje.

That's according to Khabib's manager, Ali Abdelaziz, who revealed that the UFC president contacted him directly over the 32-year-old Russian star appearing as a coach.

The 42-year-old Egyptian told TMZ: "Last week, Dana White called me. And he said, 'Ali, what do you think about Khabib and Conor doing The Ultimate Fighter on ESPN?'

"One, this is breaking news. And I said, 'Man, you know what? I don't know. I'll think about it' and he said, 'Of course, vice versa if Justin wins, right?'

"Khabib vs Conor on The Ultimate Fighter, coach, he would have probably went to the hospital because we'd beat his a**e in front of his whole team. Or Justin Gaethje versus him, right?"

Abdelaziz went on to say that Khabib slated McGregor and called him "human trash" and "garbage."

Khabib's manager continued: "I talked to Khabib yesterday and he said, 'This man is human trash, he's like garbage.'

"He said, 'When you touch s**t, you smell s**t.' He said, '[McGregor] hasn't earned to fight me. He hasn't earned to fight me.'

"You can f*****g forget about doing The Ultimate Fighter with Khabib.

Khabib clashed with McGregor in their blockbuster UFC 229 super-fight in 2018 and successfully defended his championship on the night.

However, the lightweight champ and the 'Notorious' have continued to share verbal blows even two years after their memorable clash in the octagon.

The 'Eagle' is scheduled to make his long-awaited MMA return in a unification bout against Gaethje at UFC 254 on 24th October.

Abdelaziz has suggested that other UFC fighters who have had a rivalry with McGregor are ready to do The Ultimate Fighter with the Irish superstar.

"Hey, if you want to do The Ultimate Fighter against Kamaru Usman, you can," he explained.

"If you want to do it with Khamzat Chimaev you can. And if Justin choose to, you can to. You can forget about Khabib, you can forget about the rematch. It's done, dead, never."
