Justin Gaethje Calls Out Conor McGregor For Mega-Fight In Ireland

Justin Gaethje Calls Out Conor McGregor For Mega-Fight In Ireland

Newly crowned UFC interim lightweight champion Justin Gaethje has detailed his desired two-man fight plan, and it involves the undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov and long-term rival Conor McGregor.

The 31-year-old, who is now 22-2-0, pulled off a masterclass against Tony Ferguson in the behind-closed doors main event at UFC 249 on Saturday night.

And now the American wants a match up against Khabib later this year to decide the undisputed champion of the division.

Gaethje was clear about his intentions during a fascinating press conference following his win, with Khabib firmly in his sights.

"Khabib is the best in the world. I've been working since I was four for challenges like this." he said.

"And I'm happy to represent the United States of America versus Dagestan or Russia's best.

"He's 28-0 and there's no other challenge I want right now. I want to fight him."
