Conor McGregor stands upon the precipice of greatness – not in the fighting sense, since he’s already accomplished more than most MMA fighters ever do in their lifetimes. No, I’m talking about fiscal greatness, because boxing Floyd Mayweather means he’ll get so much money he can afford to buy actual slaves and indentured servants.
So the idea that McGregor will ever want to come back to the UFC with the common plebs, well, I’ll believe it when I see it.
Dana White believes it will happen, though, and according to him, McGregor wants Khabib Nurmagomedov upon his return.
As per MMAJunkie:
“You know what Conor told me? He said, ‘I want Khabib in Russia,’” White told MMAjunkie on Wednesday at UFC headquarters. “Isn’t he (expletive) awesome? He’s like, ‘I want Khabib, in Russia.’ He’s awesome. Conor McGregor is a (expletive) 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.”
