White met Nurmagomedov during the build-up to Conor McGregor's comeback with hopes of making a blockbuster rematch.

And 'The Eagle' has now appeared to suggest he could return to action after tweeting a cryptic message on social media.

He shared a picture of himself with former UFC chief Lorenzo Fertitta, accompanied with the caption: "It was good to see you Lorenzo," while adding: "Dana White send me location."

White has been trying to lure Nurmagomedov out of retirement since his shock decision.

"I think a lot of these fights have to play out in that division. From [number nine] all the way up to number one, they're incredible fights," he explained.

"You can mix or match them any way you want and they're really good fights.

"Let some of these play out to see who will fight next for the title. I think if Khabib is interested, he'll take the fight.

"You don't see Khabib saying, 'Leave me alone. Stop asking me.'

"So, there's still a chance. That's the way I look at it."

Nurmagomedov, 32, is still the UFC lightweight champion despite his retirement stance.

He won the vacant title against Al Iaquinta at UFC 223 back in April 2018 and has defended his championship against McGregor, Dustin Poirier and Gaethje.
