There has been talk of a rematch between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov
Khabib defeated his nemesis McGregor at the UFC 229 event in October 2018 via submission
“The only chance that this fight could happen is on the street,” Khabib’s manager told ESPN during Saturday’s UFC 247 event. “(McGregor) should do something spectacular. He’s damn you understand?
“Conor McGregor is one of the biggest stars because he is one of the biggest bastards. Let’s be real, we don’t like this guy. We will never like him.
“We will probably encounter problems every time. He said things about family, things about religion, things about race. He crossed the line … you can’t cross the line. “
The hatred between the couple comes back to their original fight, mainly because of the scenes that took place after the game.
Khabib jumped into the cage to attack one of McGregor’s teammates and the bad blood from before their fight turned into an ugly fight.
Both men received fines and suspensions, but have since taken action again.

McGregor returned to Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone on UFC 246 where he defeated the American in just 40 seconds.
UFC President Dana White has said that the next most likely Irish fight will be the winner of Khabib and Tony Ferguson.
Khabib is ready to fight against Ferguson on April 18, but Abdelaziz said that McGregor should focus on other opponents, even if his client wins.
“He (McGregor) was a champion. He must earn things. Khabib really wants him to earn. It doesn’t matter because what he says.
“We have a very, very tough fight. Everyone forgets Tony and fires him. Khabib has trained for three consecutive months and he has two more months.
‘Listen, there is a lot of money for Khabib if Khabib fights Conor. But it’s not all about money. Especially with Khabib. ”
