Dana White Teases Conor McGregor Vs Khabib Nurmagomedov Rematch Could Happen Within 'The Next Year'

Dana White Teases Conor McGregor Vs Khabib Nurmagomedov Rematch Could Happen Within 'The Next Year'

UFC president Dana White has refused to rule out the possibility that a blockbuster rematch between fierce rivals Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov could happen.

Khabib, 32, walked away with the ultimate bragging rights in 2018 after beating McGregor by submission at UFC 229 in Las Vegas.

And the 'Eagle' has since announced his retirement from MMA after he sealed a sensational victory over Justin Gaethje at UFC 254 last October, notching up an unblemished 29-0 record.

Khabib has been linked with a return to the octagon, with White recently admitting that he plans to 'press him hard' for one more fight when the pair meet at 'Fight Island' this month.

published at18 days ago

Speaking ahead of UFC 257, White praised McGregor as "not only one of the best in the world, but [also] one of the best to ever do it."

And the UFC chief believes that a second showdown between McGregor and Khabib could happen should the 'Notorious' stick "around for the next year."

White told ESPN: "No matter what you think of Conor personally, Conor McGregor is not only one of the best in the world, but one of the best to ever do it.

"And right now, he's as focused as he's ever been. I don't know if this is going to be the same Conor after the Poirier fight, but if this Conor sticks around for the next year, how do you not do Khabib vs Conor again?"
