The UFC President Dana White has update the possibility of Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Conor McGregor Rematch in 2019.
Khabib and McGregor has clashed last October with Nurmagomedov, who successfully defended his lightweight title with a fourth-round submission.
The Russian then inspired a riot by climbing out of the Octagon to confront one of McGregor’s teammates. McGregor then hit one of Nurmagomedov’s teammates before he hit himself.
But The UFC President Dana White is confident a rematch will take place in the next 12 months.
Dana White told TMZ: “A lot of people want to see that fight, but we haven’t gone before the Nevada State Athletic Commission, that’s got to happen and when it does we can figure how this plays out,”
“Is Max moving to 155? Tony Ferguson is in the mix, so we’ve got to see how it plays out.
“I do (think the fight will happen in 2019), the guys are going to have to win… it depends how long the suspensions are.. but as long as everything goes right this fight shoud happen.” he added.
In the meantime, the manager of Nurmagomedov claimed that Floyd Mayweather ” begins ” to fight the UFC champion.
Ali Abdelaziz said: ” For the last month, he and I wrote each other. He’s begging for struggle.” If he says that he didn’t, I’ll put it all online.
“Floyd, don’t lie! Don’t lie, Floyd! ” Mayweather stopped the Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa on New Year’s Eve.
