Conor McGregor Wants Khabib Nurmagomedov Rematch In Moscow

After watching as Khabib Nurmagomedov unified the lightweight titles at UFC 242, Conor McGregor took to social media to discuss a rematch.

Former UFC champion Conor McGregor wants Khabib Nurmagomedov.

After seeing Nurmagomedov unify the lightweight titles with a submission win over Dustin Poirier at UFC 242 Saturday, “Notorious” asked for a rematch.

And he’s willing to compete on enemy soil for it.

Nurmagomedov earned a submission win over McGregor last year in his first title defense. Both fighters were suspended for post-fight actions, with the unbeaten “Eagle” returning in Abu Dhabi.

The likelihood of a rematch taking place is still a bit off, as McGregor continues to face issues outside the Octagon. Nurmagomedov has stated he has no desire to ever compete in Las Vegas again, the site for the first encounter with the Irish fighter.
