UFC Chief Confirms McGregor vs Khabib Set For 2019 Rematch!

UFC Chief Dana White has said he is confident he can arrange a rematch between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor in 2019.

White is keen to get the two legends of boxing in the ring again after the controversial end to their last bout.

Both fighters are still serving suspension for their involvement in a post-match brawl which happened in Las Vegas.

Khabib defeat McGregor in the fourth round of the fight to seal his place at the top of the sport - and then launched himself into the crowd to front up the Irishman's team.

The incident led to widespread criticism on their behavior but also set a huge interest for their reunion in 2019.

And UFC Chief Dana White has confirmed 2019 is the year when they both face off again.

He told TMZ: "As long as everything goes right, this fight should happen."

However, Khabib's manager Ali Abdelaziz claims Floyd Mayweather has been constantly on the phone trying to organise a date.

Abdelezaiz said: “Me and him have been texting each other for the last month and if he says he did not, I’m gonna put everything on line. Do not lie, Floyd.

"People think I’m crazy but I think Khabib would beat his ass.

"He thinks Khabib is easy money but Khabib is much younger, much stronger, more tougher than Conor, a guy that went to the eleventh round with him.

"And Conor gave up, he’s a quitter. Khabib is no quitter.”
