Undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov put on a dominant performance on Saturday, Oct. 6. For the main event of UFC 229, the Dagestan native submitted UFC megastar Conor McGregor within the fourth round of their highly anticipated title fight.
Nurmagomedov’s uncle has since spoken to Russian media, claiming that the reigning UFC lightweight champion has been offered $15 million from the UFC for a potential Conor McGregor rematch. A translation of the individual’s statement may be seen below.
“He will not fight him for any money. Yes, I know that they are offering him a rematch. From the start, they offered him 15 million, if he agrees. But Habib said no. Let Conor stand in line, let him fight with others. But Habib wants to fight Ferguson, and then finish his career.”
