It would be surprising that Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor did not have the opportunity to face each other in a rematch. We think the second fight would be bigger than the previous one. But for it to happen, at least one condition has to be met, according to Dana White.
Revenge Khabib vs McGregor
Producer Jed I. Goodman posted this on Twitter:
Dana discussing Conor/Khabib2 on Rich Eisen Show: He’s gotta beat Cowboy Cerrone, which is a very tough fight, especially at 170, w/o Cowboy having to cut weight. Then, Khabib has to beat Tony Ferguson. If both of those things happen, then yeah, I think we can make the rematch.

“Dana (White) discussing Conor vs Khabib 2 on Rich Eisen Show: ‘He has to beat Cowboy Cerrone, that is a very tough fight, especially at 170, without Cowboy having to reduce weight. Then, Khabib has to beat Tony Ferguson. If both things happen, then yes, I think we can do the revenge.”
Presumably, if Khabib loses, he will receive an immediate rematch for the title. And we must not forget that there are other fighters in the equation such as Dustin Poirier or Justin Gaethje, who are also going to want a chance at the UFC World Lightweight Championship.
As we mentioned earlier, the situation in this division is really interesting. What do you think will there be revenge Khabib vs McGregor?
