Almost one month private from Khabib Nurmagomedov’s acquiescence win over Conor McGregor and a indirect m�lange that pennyless out during UFC 229, Dana White still doesn’t have any answers about what is subsequent for a UFC lightweight multiplication or a dual biggest stars.
Speaking during a UFC 230 post-fight press conference this weekend, White addressed a UFC lightweight pretension design and what a destiny hold for Nurmagomedov and McGregor, observant that both Khabib and Conor were stranded in dilapidation until a conditions with a Nevada State Athletic Commission can be resolved.
“We’re on a Nevada State Athletic Commission’s time now,” White said. “We’re watchful until Nov or Dec – whenever that thing is – and afterwards when that thing plays out we’ll know where we sit, afterwards we’ll know what’s next.”
Nurmagomedov and McGregor were both handed provisional suspensions following a quarrel that pennyless out during UFC 229 when Nurmagomedov jumped into a throng to conflict members of McGregor’s group after his victory. The NAC is also self-denial half of Nurmagomedov’s $2M quarrel purse until a elect meets again on Dec. 10 to order on a situation. Both Nurmagomedov and McGregor could be looking during estimable suspensions or serve sanctions depending on a NAC’s ruling. If that doesn’t occur though, White says that McGregor, for one, is prepared to get right behind to work.
“Conor and we talked for an hour final week,” pronounced White. “Typical Conor. ‘I would adore an evident rematch. we wish to quarrel him again yet I’ll quarrel whoever we gotta quarrel to get behind to him if that’s not a case.’”
White did not discuss possibly a UFC was indeed deliberation extenuation McGregor a rematch, yet a probability positively exists. After Nate Diaz submitted him in their initial quarrel during UFC 196, McGregor was given an evident rematch and a eventuality was a biggest UFC pay-per-view eventuality in story until UFC 229. A rematch with Nurmagomedov, generally after a courtesy a post-fight quarrel received, is expected a biggest quarrel a UFC can put on right now.
If a UFC opts not to though, McGregor could find himself with a rematch of another arrange to get behind in a pretension picture: possibly opposite Nate Diaz or Dustin Poirier. Diaz and Poirier were ostensible to contest during UFC 230 with a shot during a leader of a reputed Khabib vs. Tony Ferguson lightweight pretension quarrel on a line. Instead, and damage forced Poirier off a label and now both group are giveaway to face off with McGregor early subsequent year.
That could come in accessible too given a UFC might shortly be during contingency with Nurmagomedov over pay. Khabib’s group recently announced that they want $50 million for his subsequent fight (McGregor’s rumored take home from UFC 229) and that’s a cost tab White does not seem peaceful to pay.
“Sure. [Laughing] Come on! They know what’s picturesque for them,” pronounced White. “They know a answer to that question. It’s fun to contend though, $50 million.”
If Nurmagomedov binds out for some-more money, we could be saying McGregor behind in a pretension design earlier rather than later.

Mad honour for this.
2005: Diego Sanchez degraded Nick Diaz during The Ultimate Fighter 2 Finale. Also that evening, Rashad Evans done his UFC debut, winning a separate preference over Brad Imes to win a TUF heavyweight tournament.
2006: At Pride Bushido 13, Kazuo Misaki won a 2006 Pride welterweight grand prix with a separate preference over Denis Kang in a finals. Earlier that evening, Misaki was submitted by Paulo Filho yet Filho withdrew from a finals and Misaki was tapped to quarrel in his stead. Also that evening, Takanori Gomi won a separate preference over Marcus Aurelio to keep his lightweight title.
2008: Mike Thomas Brown knocked out Urijah Faber to win a WEC featherweight championship during WEC 36. In a co-main eventuality that evening, Chael Sonnen degraded middleweight champion Paulo Filho, yet did not win a pretension as Filho had missed weight, forcing a hitch to be contested during a catchweight.
2016: Tony Ferguson outworked Rafael dos Anjos to acquire a unanimous preference during The Ultimate Fighter Latin America 3 Finale.
This Floyd news is furious yet here is what’s gonna happen: They’ll provoke mutated manners set and things like that, yet eventually it will be a fighting match. Probably like an 8 rounder even. Floyd wins yet gets a balance adult before rematching Pacquiao subsequent May.
Thanks for reading and see y’all tomorrow!
