Dana White Responds To Khabib's Manager's Stipulation For Conor McGregor

Dana White Responds To Khabib's Manager's Stipulation For Conor McGregor

UFC president Dana White has responded to Ali Abdelaziz's stipulation for Conor McGregor to earn a blockbuster rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Nurmagomedov makes the third defence of his UFC lightweight title against Tony Ferguson at UFC 249 on April 18.

And the undefeated UFC champion could rematch McGregor if he beats Ferguson in Brooklyn.

However, Nurmagomedov's manager insists the Irishman must beat Justin Gaethje to secure another meeting with the Russian.

White has since responded to his suggestion, but he hasn't given much away: "We'll see," he said with a smirk on his face. "We'll see."

Abdelaziz said McGregor will not get a shot at fighting Nurmagomedov until he defeats the No.4 ranked UFC lightweight Gaethje.
