McGregor wants an immediate rematch with Nurmagomedov

McGregor wants an immediate rematch with Nurmagomedov

McGregor's rivalry with Nurmagomedov was sparked when the Russian was seen on video slapping McGregor's teammate Artem Lobov in April, which led to McGregor attacking a bus full of UFC athletes and staff.

The exciting nature of the fight, and the fact that Ferguson has been on Khabib's radar for so long - including the ill-fated UFC 223 match-up that fell through due to Ferguson's injury - could finally come to fruition, assuming Khabib is not kept out of action for too long through suspension.

Though trending data ahead of UFC 229: Khabib vs. McGregor pointed to 3-million-plus pay-per-view buys, UFC president Dana White admitted on Monday that it didn't live up to that magic mark.

"I don't know when things started turning into some kind of s- show? He talked about my religion, he talked about my country, he talked about my father", he said in the post-fight conference, without answering any questions before leaving. "The biggest night of the year, and I'm disgusted". Even if you were the biggest Conor fan ever, you would at least have to respect him.




Khabib puts on the rear choke hold that won him the fight. He looked great doing it. Shortly after Khabib incited his brawl, two men presumably involved with Khabib entered the Octagon and attacked McGregor, sparking a second melee. White said he was concerned if he did, the pro-McGregor crowd would've showered the octagon and fans below with debris.

"[Nurmagomedov] has to go before the Nevada commission, and we have to see what's going to happen with Khabib and this whole mess", said White.

Nurmagomedov touched down in Russian Federation on Monday evening and was mobbed by his supporters, who got a glimpse of the man who emerged victorious in the battle for the UFC lightweight title on the weekend.

McGregor's coach John Kavanagh echoed that statement during an interview with Joe Rogan today, saying that McGregor was talking rematch immediately after the conclusion of UFC 229.
