Khabib's Manager Says 0.00% Chance He Rematches Conor McGregor, Gunning for GSP

However, fellow lightweight contender Tony Ferguson was not impressed with "The Eagle" and indicated that he does not profess to the fighting style used by the Dagestani grappler.

Nurmagomedov has also always been open to a fight with St-Pierre, his only stipulation that it should be at 155 pounds. It could be the start of a new rivalry in the lightweight division. "When I see someone pushing against the cage and not really doing much, just kind of putting themselves as a wet blanket". I don't want to fight with a guy who never wins'. It's interesting how Khabib fights but to me it's just boring. He was on a five-fight win streak before landing a title fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 242.

Dustin Poirier seems ready to move on from his disheartening loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov, and he already has a specific opponent in mind for his next Octagon appearance.

'Tony Ferguson gets the next shot, and obviously, if for whatever reason Tony can't take the fight or doesn't want to fight at that time, then we would figure out what's next'.

Nurmagomedev filed his 28th victory out of 28 fights by submitting Dustin Poirier in the third round at UFC 242 on Saturday.

A fight with Nurmagomedov is the only one that St-Pierre has recently talked about as being tempting enough to potentially draw him out of retirement.

'I want to fight real guys - Dustin Poirier, Tony Ferguson, maybe if one of the greatest athletes ever, Georges St-Pierre, wants to fight. The Irishman has been pining for a rematch against the Russian, who beat him via submission during their encounter last October.

"We can fight somewhere like Congo, why not, and all what money we make, we can use on charity on Africa or somewhere".

The rematch may make sense to Poirier but McGregor was quick to remind him that he "fed you to the canvas in 90 seconds". However, he will need to play the waiting game since UFC president Dana White says that Tony Ferguson is the first option.
