Khabib Nurmagomedov Admits He'll 'Gladly' Fight Conor McGregor Again During Latest Press Conference

Khabib Nurmagomedov has revealed he would 'gladly' fight longtime rival Conor McGregor again in the UFC.

The lightweight champion and McGregor have been involved in a bitter feud for years and they faced off at UFC 229 in 2018.

Nurmagomedov came out on top in dominant fashion and has shot down any talk of a rematch since.

However, the Russian admitted in his latest press conference per Alan Dawson: "If [Conor] McGregor returns, I will be glad to fight him.

"All these people are great fighters."

McGregor announced a shock retirement from MMA back in June as 'nothing excited him' at the moment.

Nurmagomedov's next fight will come against Justin Gaethje at UFC 254 in October and should he defeat 'The Highlight', one man he is eager to face is Tony Ferguson.

"After my next fight, I will be glad to fight anyone. Tony [Ferguson] ... anyone," he stressed.

The undefeated Russian's appearance marked his first public event since the death of his father, Abdulmanap, back in July.

Abdulmanap also served as Khabib's trainer and helped mold 'The Eagle' into the fighter he is today.

The 57-year-old tragically died due to complications caused by coronavirus. Khabib fielded multiple questions about his father and he said he still feels the loss.

"It's a very heavy loss," Nurmagomedov continued. "He wasn't just my father, he was my friend, my coach. Of course, I'm thinking about him.
