The President of UFC, Dana White made the day for fans who have been in anticipation for the long awaited battle, when he indirectly talked about the high possibility of McGregor having a rematch with Nurmagomedov, throwing more light on that he said the rematch is likely to take place after the fight between Poirier and Nurmagomedov at the UFC 242.
Justin Gaethje a past Champion of the World Series Fighting, happens to be unconvinced that McGregor deserves an opportunity anywhere close to the _ this for Gaethje can only be possible if McGregor is able to defeat one of UFC contending fighter.
After McGregor showed passionate anxiety for another fight on Twitter and he received a message from Gaethje.
“Boxing is great, I am going to relish another go,” McGregor wrote on Saturday amid Katie Taylor and Andy Ruiz Jr’s big wins. “I challenge Juan Manuel Mayweather to a rematch. Under the tutelage of my old club. We’ll see then mate.”
“Do it the right way pussy,” a fired up Gaethje replied. “Stop shitting on the integrity of the sport. You want [Khabib Nurmagomedov] again you fight me, or the winner of [Donald] “Cowboy” [Cerrone] and [Tony] Ferguson or get the fuck out of here and enjoy all that money.”
Before now, McGregor has received lots of replies from Gaethje, so this happens not to be the first of its kind. A similar message by Gaethje was communicated to McGregor recently during an interview Gaethje had with ESPN.
“I’m ranked No. 5 right now,” he said. “There are four guys and the champion in front of me. I’m looking for one of those guys, and I’m looking for a big fight this summer. I don’t want to fight guys ranked behind me. I’ve got two knockouts in a row. James Vick was ranked behind me. I feel I deserve someone in front of me… Looking at the landscape, Conor McGregor is No. 3 right now. If it’s not him, there’s not an open fight right now. So, that’s the fight I want. He’s No. 3. If he’s not going to fight, take him out of the rankings. I’d be cool with that, too, and we can move on from there.”
