A UFC fan believes he has found the exact moment a "switched on and healthy" Conor McGregor beats Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229.
McGregor returned to the Octagon with a stunning 40 second victory against Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 and it appears the Irishman will be in a title fight next.
Dana White revealed that the Irishman will face the winner of Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson next.
'The Notorious' will be seeking for redemption if the Russian comes out victorious following his devastating submission defeat at UFC 229.
And ahead of a potential blockbuster rematch, a UFC fan has reviewed their 2018 lightweight clash and found the exact moment a primed McGregor beats Nurmagomedov.
The 20 second clip from the third round shows McGregor walking down Nurmagomedov and landing a few shots, including his trademark left hand which came very close to landing.
Watch this sequence. I promise you... if you give Conor this exact 20 seconds to do over when @TheNotoriousMMA is switched on & healthy... Khabib would have been dead.- (@NotoriousNoLuv) February 4, 2020

McGregor could have the chance to exact revenge if Nurmagomedov wins at UFC 249.
"Probably the winner of Khabib [Nurmagomedov] and Tony [Ferguson]," the UFC president said when asked who's next for McGregor on The Jim Rome Show.
"Amazing fight. I don't know [who wins] but you've got to give the edge to Khabib.
"Never lost, undefeated, savage, got to give him the edge."
Khabib has blasted Conor McGregor and questioned the UFC's decision to book a rematch between the pair next. :eyes:- SPORTbible (@sportbible) February 5, 2020
Just when you thought he was being quiet, the Russian comes out and rips into everybody. HERE WE GO! :grimacing: https://t.co/lursaKMp7r
However, the lightweight king has questioned UFC's decision to book a rematch.
When a theoretical purse of $100 million was proposed, 'The Eagle' said: "Why do I need that kind of money, there are so many organizations for example (gestures to the room)... There's not only football for the blind, there's Sambo and other sports.
"Let [the UFC] give it to them, if they don't know what to do with the money. But giving me $100m to beat up that idiot again? I don't think that's rational."
Does McGregor deserve another crack at Nurmagomedov? Let us know what you think.
