He is a professional fighter. He should come back, win, earn his place and get in line.”

Khabib’ Dad Statement

Khabib’s father, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov stated on the YouTube channel that Conor McGregor vs Khabib rematch may happen on Russian soil, in Moscow.

“If Conor McGregor wants it, then Moscow is waiting for him. He said once that he has more fans here than Khabib,” Khabib’s father, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov said. “We want to host him in Moscow, he is welcome – we are waiting.”

Now, when will Tony Ferguson gets a chance? Ferguson has a long 12 match winning streak. He is a deserving opponent. Also, Khabib said that his next fight will be against either with Tony Ferguson or GSP. However, Khabib’s father admitted that Tony Ferguson is a deserving opponent.

“But before McGregor, we should finish our business with Ferguson. Because he had 28 fights, and runs a 12-fight winning streak in the UFC, just like Khabib,” Khabib’ dad added. “Such winning streaks and such big fights have never happened in the UFC.

“So I think Madison Square Garden is a good place for this fight, but we won’t fight earlier than March.”
