Khabib Nurmagomedov defeated Dustin Poirier at UFC 242 in Abu Dhabi via submission in the third round. Conor McGregor immediately calls out Khabib for a rematch.
At the UFC 242 post fight press conference reporter asked Dana who is next for Khabib and he said:
“I mean Tony Ferguson is next in line for the fight if he accepts the fight. You know we’ll see how this thing plays out, when Khabib will fight again and if Tony wants to fight he’s next. Tony Ferguson gets the next shot and obviously if for whatever reason Tony Ferguson can’t take the fight or doesn’t want to fight at then time then we would figure out what was next. Conor McGregor wants to fight Khabib really badly and I’m sure the fans would want to see it. We’ll see how this whole thing plays out.”
Khabib Nurmagomedov is still undefeated with 28 wins and 0 losses. He has 12 fight win streak in UFC. Tony Ferguson has also 12 fight win streak in UFC but he has 3 losses in his MMA career. Conor McGregor has three losses in his last four fights and he lost to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229.
Who should Khabib fight next, Conor McGregor or Tony Ferguson?
