UFC supremo Dana White revealed last week that Nurmagomedov would consider a return if he is impressed by a "spectacular performance" this weekend, but McGregor is sceptical over the prospect of the undefeated mauler returning to the octagon. They weren't even the main event. "Conor's team, McGregor Sports and Entertainment, did reach out to my foundation and they are starting the donation to the Good Fight Foundation". In addition, there's a possibility that some big opportunities could be ahead for whoever wins.
However, controversy ensued the following year when, having been stripped of both UFC titles by this point, he attacked a bus containing Khabib Nurmagomedov, who would go on to succeed McGregor as lightweight champion a few days later.

Of course, McGregor has developed as well. Those close to him are saying he's in the best shape of his life.
"I'm very excited to get in and fight". Recently, popular YouTuber Jake Paul has been trying to coax him into a boxing match too. "Both men know the magnitude". Cutting weight to 145lbs was becoming increasingly problematic for Poirier, who moved up to the lightweight division, vowing to remain there for the rest of his career. He was arrested and charged in 2019 after destroying a fan's phone in Florida, and pleaded guilty to assault and fined 1,000 euros for punching a man in a Dublin pub later that year. Each has something to prove too.
McGregor doubled down on that, and though he admitted he had a flaw in what was his first octagon loss to Diaz almost five years ago, he said that it's still held against him is a mistake. The latter fight earned him the interim lightweight belt but he came up short when fighting the fearsome Khabib Nurmagomedov for the full title.
While it is impractical to predict what will happen at UFC 257, but with Khabib not entirely closing the door on a UFC return, and on the other hand Conor making his return and promises to stay more active gives a sense that there is a possibility of a rematch between the two.
