Nurmagomedov will fight McGregor for free

Dana White details Conor McGregor, Khabib Nurmagomedov, Tony Ferguson plans Tony Ferguson Vs Khabib Nurmagomedov May Be Next Says Dana White
Cassandra Gardner | 06 January, 2018, 01:33

Recently, Dana White came out and stated he will "never work with Showtime again", after the network released that the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight was the second highest North American pay-per-view event of all time, falling behind the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight that took place in 2015.

"Not only to the sport, but to the other fighters".

He continued on to cite his own figures, insisting that Mayweather vs. McGregor did 6.7 million buys worldwide, and would have done up to 7 million if the streaming service had not crashed right before the fight started.

He made a truckload of money a year ago by stepping into the ring with Floyd Mayweather Jr. and has dedicated a string of social media posts in recent weeks to asking the organization and any potential opponents to beg for his return, knowing full well that all the leverage in any potential fight negotiation rests in his corner.

White added: "Conor has some big decisions to make here, really quick".

As long as Conor is willing to (book a) fight by March, we could do Khabib versus Tony.

Some states in the report, such as NY and MA , have seen the racial mortality gap disappear for whites and blacks over 65. Early detection and treatment has also helped drive declines, the report states.


The 29-year-old Irishman fought last inside the octagon in November 2016 against Eddie Alvarez. "If he waits - I don't think Conor wants to fight until August, but if he waits until August or September, that's around two years since the belt has been defended, and that can't happen".

Ferguson has earned the interim lightweight belt while Nurmagomedov has fought well enough to deserve a title shot of his own, but they can not do much of anything without McGregor.

He then followed it up with another tweet saying that everyone who wants to see him fight again will have to beg him for it or else he won't be coming back.

"Think about this and I don't give a shit about Showtime's fucking full of shit press release they put out - it's the biggest fight ever". That's his choice and his decision. Tony Ferguson claimed the interim title by knocking Kevin Lee out of contention with a triangle choke in the main event of UFC 216. "Or if Conor doesn't want to fight and wants to sit out until next fall, then we would have to make Khabib versus Tony for the title, not the interim title".

"The question is, does he have so much money that he doesn't care anymore and he doesn't really want to fight?"
