CONFIRMED: Khabib vs. Conor McGregor Rematch Will Happen In 2019

    Fans waiting for news of the Khabib vs Conor McGregor rematch might be happy to hear this. UFC president Dana White confirms the fight will happen as soon as the two superstars have been dealt with by the Nevada Athletic Commission…

    Think back to October 2018, when Conor McGregor took on Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. Then all of the drama that followed Khabib winning, him jumping the cage, then all hell breaking loose. Well, Dana seems to think we get to see it all over again, maybe with less drama.

    CONFIRMED: Khabib vs. Conor McGregor Rematch Will Happen In 2019

    Dana was speaking with TMZ sports recently where he was asked about 2019, different fights and the things he has planned. One of the things that was obviously brought up was the Conor vs. Khabib rematch.

    Jon Jones following his win on Saturday over Alexander Gustafsson, mentioned that one of the fights he wants to see in 2019 is Conor vs. Khabib 2. Dana obviously had a few things to say regarding that possibility and the others surrounding the 155lbs weight class. We have some things to look forward to…

    Heres what Dana had to say when asked about the rematch…

    “I think a lot of people want to see that fight. Obviously, again, we still haven’t gone through the Nevada State Athletic Commission. That’s gotta happen and when it does we can see how this is all gonna play out”

    When asked if he thinks that the rematch will be in 2019 he simply replied with “Yes, I do”

    Also he didn’t forget to mention the other fighters and fight possibilities we have going for us in 2019 in the Lightweight division. He mentioned the 145lbs Champ Max ‘Blessed’ Holloway moving to 155. Tony Ferguson obviously still being in the mix and waiting for his shot at Khabib.

    However, none of this can be planned and actually be booked until Khabib and/or Conor receive their punishments from the NSAC for their actions after UFC 229. They are dished out in court sessions which Khabib hasn’t actually turned up for yet…

    Do you want to see Khabib vs McGregor 2? Or would you like to see Holloway or Ferguson take one of the two?

    What do you think ?
