Undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov shocked the world with a dominant performance over mixed martial arts megastar Conor McGregor back at UFC 229 on Oct. 6. Within the fourth round, the reigning title holder earned a submission victory over his opponent.
Nurmagomedov entered the event with the promise of a $2 million payday, while Conor McGregor was estimated to profit upwards of $50 million from the event. Speaking to Russian media in a recent interview, Khabib Nurmagomedov’s uncle revealed that the Dagestan native has been offered $15 million for a rematch against Conor McGregor. However, Nurmagomedov is not interested in the match up.
Check out a translation of the statement down 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.”
