Dana White Unveils Timeline For Potential Conor McGregor vs. Khabib Match-Up

Dana White Unveils Timeline For Potential Conor McGregor vs. Khabib Match-Up

The Dagestani native brought his career record to 25-0 after destroying Edson Barboza at UFC 219 on December 30 and he called out McGregor and Ferguson afterwards.

He made a truckload of money previous year 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.

Khabib began his onslaught of abuse on New Year's day calling McGregor a "tap machine" before sending the SBG star a photoshopped image of himself chasing him whilst riding a bear. White also relayed in the interview that it's unfair to other contenders to have a division's title picture put on hold, since "time is your enemy" in fighting.

As much as it would be great to have him come back, defend his title and return to being an active fighter in 2018, I've reached a point where I'm exhausted of talking about whether he's going to come back or not and whom he would fight because right now, it's just a bunch of noise and it drowns out far more important and meaningful conversations. "If Conor McGregor doesn't fight, the UFC is going to go on".

"I need Tony and Conor, same night". I fight for my people. I fight for my legacy. Three rounds? I'm exhausted about this. Or Conor doesn't wanna fight and wants to sit out until - you know - next fall, then we would have to make Khabib vs.

If McGregor fails to defend his lightweight title in search of another lucrative, glamour bout, UFC fans are going to start getting sick of the Notorious One.

"So Conor has some big decisions to make here, really quick", White told Yahoo Sports' Kevin Iole. "He fight with only like 45-years old Floyd Mayweather or marijuana guy who lose 10 times in UFC, Nate Diaz". You know, like this is insane.

From the sound of things, Nurmagomedov won't have to wait long to get one of his requested matchups against either McGregor or Ferguson. Tony or Conor, it doesn't matter.

"I [told] him, 'Hey, today, when I fight, my son is born", Nurmagomedov said.

"He said, 'You deserve everything [that] you want, '" Nurmagomedov recalled.
