Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Uncle uncle Alex Nurmagomedov revealed that Khabib has turned down a $15 million offer to rematch Conor McGregor, and Khabib declined. He said, ” let Conor stand in line, let him fight with others. Khabib wants to fight Tony Ferguson next and then finish his career and retire.
We planned [a Ferguson fight], but it can pass only if Khabib remains in hte UFC. Many organizations with large prize funds offered him to sign a contract. If Khabib remains in the UFC, then in April or May there will be a battle with Ferguson. For $2 Million [from Bellator], Khabib will not fight. Now he is ready to go into battle for no less than $5 million. In Bellator, we were told to name our amount and they are ready to sign a contract. If Khabib leaves the UFC, another eight people can leave with him.
I cannot list them all, but they are powerful, good fighters. I will not yet call their names. The UFC asked Kahbib not to hurry, because they have not yet made a final decision.
What do you think of Khabib wanting to retire from the UFC and maybe sign with a new organization? Over the years, I have seen him become more and more disenfranchised with the UFC [ Dana White] and more outspoken about his unhappiness.
