A few days ago, Dana White commented on the Khabib-McGregor rematch, indicating that it could happen, but without stating it, saying that “he thinks it could happen”:
“Dana (White) discussing Conor vs Khabib 2 on Rich Eisen Show: ‘He has to beat Cowboy Cerrone, which 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.”
Conor vs Cowboy = Done ✔️
Khabib vs Tony = Done ✔️@danawhite confirms two monster fights and there’s a clear plan for THAT rematch too 😱

Now, speaking with BT Sport, the UFC president was even clear.
“If Conor beats the Cowboy [Donald Cerrone] and Khabib Nurmagomedov beats Tony Ferguson, then we would make the rematch very soon.”
