Of course, Nurmagomedov's promoter is White who signed the Russian in late 2011, and the unbeaten fighter is managed by Abdelaziz, who also takes care of Justin Gaethje, among other UFC stars.

Abdelaziz's two clients, meanwhile, will clash for the undisputed UFC lightweight title following Gaethje's victory over Tony Ferguson at UFC 249.

And the UFC boss is "excited" about the championship contest.

"What I am excited about is I want to see what is going to happen between Justin Gaethje and Khabib," White said.

As for Nurmagomedov's long-time rival McGregor, White revealed that he has not spoken to the Irishman about fighting.

"Conor and I have not talked about fighting," he added.

"If you're Conor and you're sitting home - I mean everybody's calling you out in every weight division. Who's next?

"I'm waiting. Who's going to call him out next? It's crazy.

"You know Conor and his personality. He's going to respond to you. Conor and I have not talked about a fight.

"I think what Conor needs to do is sit back, let a lot of these fights start rolling - and obviously the most important division, the 55-pound division - and see what plays out for him."

Nurmagomedov hasn't fought since September 2019 when he defended his UFC title against Dustin Poirier.

He was set to face Ferguson at UFC 249 until the coronavirus crisis stopped him from leaving Russia to enter America.
