The President of the ultimate fighting championship (UFC) Dana white called, three of them potential rivals of the Russian fighter Habib Nurmagomedov. His words are quoted by ESPN.

“The fight between Nurmagomedov and [Conor] McGregor has broken all possible records. It was incredible! Habib won, and we have the opportunity to arrange for his fight with Tony Ferguson, Dustin Pare or a rematch with Conor,” said the head of the UFC.

According to white, he doesn’t know when there might be a rematch between Nurmagomedov and McGregor. He noted that it was necessary to await the decision of the Athletic Commission of Nevada, as before, it is pointless to plan something. The Commission meeting scheduled for December 10.

The last match of the Dagestan fighter held on 7 October. Nurmagomedov defeated McGregor, forcing the latter to surrender, and defended the title of the champion of UFC in the lightweight division.

After the battle, the Russians came out of the octagon and provoked a mass brawl. The conflict managed to be stopped only with the help of the police. Nurmagomedov was not deprived of the title because of the incident, however, froze payment of the fee. The athletic Commission of Nevada has started the investigation against Nurmagomedov and McGregor. At this time, both fighters suspended from participation in battles.
