As soon as UFC President Dana White officially confirmed McGregor’s next fight against Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone, he also hinted at a rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov if Conor manages to win against Cowboy.
Although MMA fans are happy that Cowboy is finally getting his big money fight after paying his dues at the UFC, he is considered past his prime by many.
Dana White’s claim that McGregor can have his rematch against Khabib “if he gets through Cowboy Cerrone” showed the MMA world that pro-Conor bias is still alive.
White’s comment didn’t sit well with hardcore MMA fans as they know McGregor hasn’t done enough to deserve the Khabib fight.
He looks to be in complete denial of his preferential treatment of Mystic Mac. This will definitely leave a bad taste in the mouths of fighters who have been working their way up the lightweight division.
