Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov II is something that everyone in the world of MMA is looking forward to. Not just the fans, not just the fighters, but McGregor himself is eager to face off against Khabib one more time. However, the Russian would have none of it. He hasn’t agreed to face off McGregor for a rematch – and that’s how things remain for now.
Having failed to secure a rematch with the Russian, McGregor ‘retired’ a couple of months ago. However, he has since been hinting of a comeback but nothing is official. As of now, the only thing that can officially bring ‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor out of retirement is a rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov.
