It seems as though Khabib Nurmagomedov doesn’t care who he fights. He makes it sound like GSP or Conor McGregor could be his next opponent, but whoever is put in from of him is who he will fight. Since becoming champion, Khabib has defended his title as many times as Conor McGregor has. The only thing is, Conor had almost a two-year head start.
The good news is that unlike Conor, Khabib plans on defending his title. He gives a return date of sometime right after summer. I know that rumors of GSP dropping to 155 pounds are out there, but I just don’t see that happening.
The fight to make is Conor vs Khabib. Everyone wants to know how that fight will play out and are crossing their fingers and toes for that fight to come to fruition.
