Dana White Says Khabib Nurmagomedov Is “The Man” Now, Conor McGregor Comments

A change to the culture of the UFC may be coming sooner than one may think and that change has to do with UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

UFC President Dana White recently stated that Nurmagomedov is now “the man” in the UFC.

“Khabib is the man now,” White said to The Boston Globe. “Conor isn’t the man anymore, so Khabib gets to sit back and call the shots.”

One person who wasn’t very happy with what White said about Nurmagomedov is former two division UFC champion Conor McGregor, who said the following through Twitter:


McGregor and Nurmagomedov collided at UFC 229 in October of 2018, with Nurmagomedov scoring a fourth round submission victory in their grudge match. Nurmagomedov has gone onto compete at UFC 242, while McGregor hasn’t competed since that loss and also hasn't picked up a victory in over three years.
