Khabib has revealed he will give Conor McGregor rematch on one condition

Posted by

Khabib Nurmagomedov announced his retirement last October after his second title defence and win over Justin Gaethje but has Dana tempted him back into the world of UFC.

Dana White has been fighting recently to get arguably the best fighter of all time back into the UFC fighting again and began negotiations with Khabib in Abu Dhabi on January 15th.

The Mirror is reporting that Khabib has issued his condition for coming out of retirement to fight McGregor.

He has reportedly told McGregor “Impress me if you want a rematch.”

Khabib defeated McGregor with a fourth round submission in 2018 and doesn’t feel that McGregor showed enough to warrant a rematch but maybe the Irishman can change that this weekend.

Khabib’s words to Dana White were ‘I would never tie up the division and hold the belt away from anyone else. These guys have to do something spectacular and make me want to come back’.

Will McGregor or Poirier be able to impress Khabib enough to warrant the Dagestani fighter returning to the octagon?

Dana also told The Mirror “I have a feeling if someone delivers – it could be in the co-main event or the main event – if these guys can do something special, Khabib will fight them.”
