Dana White Unsure If Nurmagomedov vs. McGregor II Happens


UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov defeated Conor McGregor in the main event of UFC 229, but would then hop the cage and instigate a huge brawl.

While a Nurmagomedov versus McGregor rematch seems like a sure thing in most peoples minds, it may not happen according to UFC President Dana White.

“We have to see what happens with the Nevada State Athletic Commission (before discussing a rematch),” White told MMA Junkie. “Not just the commission – there’s going to be fines and God knows what else. Can these guys get visas and get back in the country? And I mean Khabib. We’ll see how this thing plans out.”

Nurmagomedov could be facing a lot of punishment for instigating the brawl, but nothing has been announced at this time.

White, in the end, is just like a parent right now, who isn’t angry, but disappointed in what happened between his two UFC stars.

“I’ve been doing this for 18 years and on the biggest night ever, I couldn’t be more disappointed,” White said. “You know me, I’m always mad at everything. I’m not even mad. I’m just disappointed.”

If a rematch were to come together, it would be the second for McGregor and the first for Nurmagomedov in their respective UFC tenures.
