Dana White resumes comeback negotiations with Khabib Nurmagomedov – MMA Sports

UFC President Dana White seems determined to return Habib Nurmagomedov to an octagon, but if the current UFC lightweight champion chooses not to make a comeback, he will certainly be in the lightweight division. It says it will not be maintained.

UFC President, who spoke with Jim Rome at , will follow Saturday’s UFC 257 PPV with another meeting in Las Vegas this time to discuss the status of the lightweight division and see if there is one. I made it clear that I am. In 2021, there will be an option to convince the lightweight champion to return to the cage.

“He’s coming to Las Vegas and he and I’re going to dinner,” White said. “He said,’The only thing I don’t do is that I never endure the division, so if I decide I’m not going to fight one of these guys, I’ll retire ( And) the belt can move forward. “

White explained that he was thinking about his surroundings. Nurmagomedov defeats Justin Gaethje in UFC 254 Last October, I hurriedly decided to leave sports.

“I feel like he decided to retire under a lot of pressure. His dad just died, he was in the camp so he didn’t spend time with his family. He got injured and had a hard time losing weight because of the injury. He went in, fought the fight and I think he made an emotional decision, so which one this weekend Let’s see how it is done. “

White seems to think that if undefeated Nurmagomedov presents the right challenge, he is likely to change his mind. Prior to UFC257, UFC Chairman details that lightweight Dustin Poirier, Conor McGregor, Michael Chandler and Dan Hooker will destroy the house. And give Habib good reason to get out of retirement to protect his world title.

“He still wants to fight,” White said. “He’s watching” I defeated all these guys. What is your next challenge for me? Let’s see what happens this weekend and if anyone looks really good. “(((Transcription by MMA junkie)
