Connor McGregor will go head to head in highly anticipated match against Floyd Mayweather on August 26. The UFC legend will fight one of the greatest boxers of all time who currently is 49-0.
And now, according to UFC president Dana White, McGregor wants to fight Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov next after Mayweather.
In an interview, Dana White said that ‘Notorious’ wants to fight the No. 2-ranked Nurmagomedov in his homeland Russia:
“You know what Conor told me? He said, ‘I want Khabib in Russia.’
“Isn’t he f****** awesome? He’s like, ‘I want Khabib, in Russia.’ He’s awesome. Conor McGregor is a f****** unicorn. There’s nothing like him.
“He’s working on boxing Floyd Mayweather and then he’s talking about fighting Khabib in Russia right after.”
During its 24-year existence, UFC never held a fighting event in Russia but that could change soon.
Khabib is 24-0 in MMA and 8-0 in UFC and is set to fight Tony Ferguson at UFC 209 in March. //Actuates//
