And Rogan reacted to the showdown by hyping up the lightweight clash. On Instagram, he wrote: "It would be impossible for me to be more excited about this fight.

"The return of the GOAT lightweight king, @khabib_nurmagomedov vs his most dangerous challenger, @justin_gaethje. I CAN'T F**KING WAIT."

His post sent social media wild with both McGregor and Nurmagomedov leaving a comment.

McGregor has been linked with a rematch against Nurmagomedov ever since his crushing defeat back at UFC 229 in October 2018.

While Nurmagomedov is eyeing a blockbuster fight with UFC legend Georges St-Pierre in April 2021 if he gets past Gaethje.

"At the end of the day, the Conor McGregor [rematch], I know Conor has wanted that fight since the last one [in October 2018]," he explained.

"That's a fight to make, but I don't know. We'll see how this plays out. Sure, [I would be open to St-Pierre] if it's his last fight. This guy's been great to the company, great to the sport. I like Khabib a lot. I would do anything Khabib wanted to do."

St-Pierre, who had one of the most dominant title reigns in UFC history, then responded to the UFC president's claim.

"Damn! Just when I thought I'd have peace of mind," he told ESPN. "I look forward to watching Khabib and Gaethje in October. Best of luck to them."
