“He gets what he’s been waiting for,” White said on The Jim Rome Show (via Damon Martin of MMA Fighting). “He gets what he’s been asking for. He has been chomping at the bit for the Khabib rematch. I think it’s no big secret.”
McGregor and Nurmagomedov first met back at UFC 229 and White says the potential rematch could be the biggest UFC pay-per-view event in history.
“If he wins this weekend, he will get that shot at the title and it will be the biggest pay-per-view ever in UFC history,” says White.
UFC 246 takes place tonight from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada with Conor McGregor and Donald Cerrone headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
