A clash with McGregor has been mooted with the pair of fighters exchanging verbal jabs on social media ahead of a potential showdown in the UFC.

And if the fight does come to fruition, it'll be a bout 'The Highlight' has been campaigning for following his direct message to 'The Notorious' in March 2019.

The newly minted interim-UFC lightweight champion is ready to face UFC lightweight king Khabib Nurmagomedov next NOT McGregor.

"I tweeted that he [Conor] is losing his clout," he told Brett Okamoto via Essentially Sports. "I don't mean [that] in general, like with the general public. But with fighters, man? This guy, he's losing so much respect in the game, [about] which he probably doesn't care. But to someone like me, and even him, I would assume that that matters a little bit.

"He doesn't hold the cards right now! I put myself in a great position! I asked for a say in my destiny, and I went out there. And I showed up. I'm in a spot where I can pick between Khabib and Conor.

"If I wanna fight Conor, I can fight Conor. Believe me. Of course, why wouldn't Dana put [that fight] together? But that's not the fight I want! His only [play] is he's 'Mr. Red Panty-Night'. Not everybody's a greedy motherf**ker like him. I think, for one, whenever I beat Khabib and then I beat Conor, in these times, under this microscope, [that is] legendary."
