However, the 'Highlight' has ruled out a showdown with Khabib in July and insisted that he would most likely fight in August or September.

"I'm not fighting in July. F**k that!" Gaethje said in his post-fight interview.

"[I will] probably [fight] in August, September. Something like that."

And he recently revealed that UFC would book Gaethje's clash with Khabib on Fight Island next month.

"I don't know if it will be the first one, but it will be on Fight Island, unless miraculously the world comes back together faster than I think it's gonna," White told ESPN 1000 Chicago.

"Hopefully it [Fight Island] will be done by mid-June, and I could put on a fight that weekend that it's done or end of June."

Ferguson, 36, saw his 12-fight winning streak come to an end last Saturday after Gaethje stopped him in the fifth.
