The UFC on FOX cards is being seen by fewer and fewer people. People seem to love to claim that MMA is the fastest growing sport, but simply put, it’s not true.

Dana White: "The next fight could be Conor vs. Khabib."

And just like that the lightweight title picture got even more interesting. Over the past few days there was talk from Jose Aldo about being offered an interim lightweight title match and current champ Conor McGregor maintaining that he’s not relinquishing his title anytime soon. Then there’s #1 contender Khabib Nurmagomedov practically pleading for a fight with Conor while allegedly turning one down with Aldo. Well, add another wrinkle to that equation.

While speaking with FOX5 in New York promoting UFC 208, UFC president Dana White discussed the company’s interest in putting on an invent in Russia. “We’re focused very heavily on Russia right now. There’s tons of talent coming out of Russia, and a lot of fans. There’s a fighter named Khabib who’s from Russia, and he’s insanely popular. The next fight could be Conor vs. Khabib.”

Could be is the integral phrase there. As we’ve seen with the UFC anything can or cannot happen, no matter how much it is being talked about. A match bewteen Conor and #1 ranked lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov has been talked about heavily ever since Conor claimed the title at UFC 205.

Paige VanZant vs. Ronda Rousey?

Well not exactly. TMZ recently caught up with this Saturday’s UFC on Fox headliner Paige VanZant and asked her about the probability of a fight between her and the former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. Paige was game but with one catch, that of a catchweight.

“If she want’s to meet me at 125 (I’d fight her),” VanZant said. “I’d have to go up. I would consider going up to 125. It’s not that big of a weight gain for me. We’ll see if we meet at 125,” she continued.
