UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov did not support the plan of UFC honcho Dana White to organize a second duel with Conor McGregor in case they both win in the next fights.
“In the last ten battles, Cerrone lost seven or eight fights. And he also won almost nothing. So let's say: second league. Who will win is not at all interesting. It amazes me that Dana White says that the winner of their pair ... If Conor wins, and I win against Tony Ferguson, there will be a rematch. Who will fight [for the belt] - I make a decision,” said Khabib Nurmagomedov at a press conference in Krasnodar. - To face me, he needs to first cut the weight to 70 kilograms, and, as I did before the belt, to achieve ten fights in the winning streak. Then we’ll think about a rematch, but for now, let him fight with second-rate fighters weighing 77 kilograms and earn a fight for the belt in 70 kilograms ... While I am there, this will not happen, rest assured.”
