Dana White – “If Conor McGregor Wins This Fight, I would Love To See The Rematch With Khabib”

Last updated

UFC President Dana White has once again stated his intention to get Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov back in the octagon together.

Speaking to the SHOUT! podcast, White would discuss the upcoming UFC 257 bout between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier. ‘When I fly out there, Khabib’s gonna be there, too. So I’m gonna meet with Khabib while I’m there. In a perfect world, if Conor wins this fight, I would love to see the rematch with him and Khabib.’

Khabib of course defeated McGregor back at UFC 229. Nurmagomedov took the win in the 4th round making McGregor submit via a neck crank. After Khabib’s recent fight against Justin Gaethje he announced his intention to retire, following the loss of his father and trainer. In recent months however this stance appears to have changed somewhat, with the 29-0 undefeated Lightweight potentially looking for win number 30.

Dana White would also preview the upcoming fight between McGregor and Poirier. ‘Poirier has wanted this fight again since the first one,’ White revealed. ‘And obviously, neither one of these guys are the same fighters they were the first time they fought. So it’s a very interesting fight.” 

‘Conor’s been out for a while” White continued, “But if you look at his training right now? He looks damn good. He’s in great shape; Poirier’s in great shape. Should be a fun one.’

Conor McGregor is currently favourite against Poirier at 2/5 (according to SkyBet at the time of publication).
