White: ‘Khabib vs. McGregor rematch should happen in 2019′
The UFC president expects to book a second fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor this year, should everything be allright.
“I think a lot of people want to see that fight,” White said. “Obviously, again, we still haven’t gone before the Nevada State Athletic Commission. That’s gotta happen, and when that does we can figure out how this whole thing plays out.
“Is Max [Holloway] moving to 155? Tony Ferguson is obviously in the mix, so we gotta see how this thing plays out,” He added.
“Obviously guys are going to have to win. It depends on how long the suspensions are and things like that, but yeah. As long as everything goes right, this fight should happen.”
