White: McGregor could make UFC return against Cerrone

White: McGregor could make UFC return against Cerrone

However, Khabib has revealed that the Boxing Federation of Russia made him an offer to fight at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow this summer.

Khabib has had a heated rivalry with Floyd Mayweather, who fought Conor McGregor inside a boxing ring, so it would be hardly surprising if the UFC fighter chose to call him out for the match.

"It's definitely gonna be this year", Cerrone said. That time, however, McGregor informed Cerrone he was up for the contest, and since then there's been a lot of speculation that the fight will happen.

A little over a week ago, UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov was given his punishment by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) for his role in the post-fight brawl at UFC 229.

"I think that they will create an interim title". (Expletive) root for whoever you want. I love it, man.

American fighter Cerrone has a 35-11 MMA record and 22-8 in UFC, while Irishman McGregor is 22-4. Names like former interim champion Tony Ferguson and No. 3 Dustin Poirier are clearly at the forefront of potential opponents for Nurmagomedov's next title defense, but it will be a while before we see any of those fights come to fruition.

Nurmagomedov went on to beat late replacement Al Iaquinta at UFC 223 to claim the lightweight title, before defending the belt against Conor McGregor. "I'm not going to try to wrestle him, I'm going to (expletive) stand and give you all what you want to see".
