Khabib Prefers Floyd Mayweather Fight Over All UFC Options


McGregor found himself in legal trouble in April, attacking a bus which contained Nurmagomedov in a auto park within Brooklyn's Barclays Center ahead of UFC 223.

"Our fight will be twice as interesting". He's never lost. 50 bouts and 50 wins.

McGregor made his long-awaited return to the mixed martial arts world last month in the main event of UFC 229, where he challenged Khabib Nurmagomedob for the lightweight title. "Some people root for him and some people root against him", Nurmagomedov said. "Absolutely not true. Obviously that's the fight that "Cowboy" Cerrone wants but that's not true".

Despite many - including UFC chief Dana White - expressing a preference for Khabib to next face lightweight division rival Tony Ferguson in the octagon, the Makhachkala-based fighter himself said he has other plans when asked about that possibility at the presser.

Nurmagomedov, the UFC lightweight champion, has been linked with a fight against jiu-jitsu expert Tony Ferguson and a rematch against Irish striker Conor McGregor. That would be very interesting.

"I think it's always very interesting when a person keeps winning". Whether or not, McGregor returns to the UFC or to the Boxing Ring is to be seen.

Before the UFC brass can contemplate booking Nurmagomedov vs McGregor 2, they must wait for both men to be punished for their respective parts in the brawl which followed their Las Vegas grudge match.

Mayweather has said he will only face Nurmagomedov under boxing rules, which the Russian fighter is willing to do - naming Moscow's 80,000-capacity Luzhniki Stadium as a potential venue next summer.

McGregor, who despite sharing no further details regarding his future in the Octagon, has provided a very fresh update on social media regarding what the future holds for him in the fight business. 'But, right now, not even worth thinking about until we find out what happens in Nevada.' McGregor and Nurmagomedov are both serving temporary suspensions and are due to appear before the commission on December 10.

"But first we will need to await the commission to give their verdict and then we will talk about the next fight".

The power, size and speed of the blaze at Deepwater came as a surprise to locals who say they have seen nothing like it before. All residents north of Pacific Drive, near Wartburg, were told to leave and remain outside of the area.
