UFC president Dana White once again fueled the curiosity of the fans stating that a rematch between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor is “absolutely possible”.
Last October The Eagle won via submission, whilst the fight itself become one of the most watched events in UFC’s history. Talking with journalist Rich Eisen, White implicated that MMA fans might get their dream fight.
“It’s a very interesting division because you have Khabib, you have Tony Ferguson, Conor McGregor, Donald Cerrone’s in the mix, Justin Gaethje – there’s just so many unbelievable fights in that weight class and Khabib keeps talking about fighting Georges St. Pierre again. St-Pierre retired but when St-Pierre retired, he retired basically saying I won’t if I can fight Khabib. So there’s so many different, crazy, interesting things that we can do at that weight class. It would be a massive fight and it’s absolutely possible, yes. I think McGregor is gonna come back at the beginning of next year. So, realistically, all these guys are looking at September to see what happens with Khabib and Poirier. After that fight plays out, I think there’s gonna be a lot of movement going on. Any time there’s too much money involved, Rich, bet on it happening,” White said.
