Undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov earned a stunning submission victory over mixed martial arts megastar Conor McGregor on Saturday for the main event of UFC 229. Now it would appear that it will take quite a lot for the Dagestan native to step inside the octagon with “Notorious” again.
Speaking on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show, Khabib Nurmagomedov’s teammate Luke Rockhold broke the news.
“If you want a rematch, if the people want a rematch, if they are going to buy into a rematch, they are going to have to pay Khabib.”
“Khabib doesn’t need anything at this point in his life. So they are going to have to give him a very, very hefty paycheck. Probably the biggest paycheck in the world, in the history of MMA guaranteed on his side.”
“I know Khabib, I have talked with Khabib and if you want a rematch, he will demand a record-breaking number.”
