UFC president Dana White says Conor McGregor has already called him, asking for an immediate rematch against Khabib Nurmagomedov.
McGregor wrote on social media he is “looking forward to the rematch.” White told “First Take” on Monday that McGregor has also brought it up to him directly.
Good knock. Looking forward to the rematch.

“[Nurmagomedov] has to go before the Nevada commission, and we have to see what’s going to happen with Khabib and this whole mess,” White said.
“That’s what Conor has asked for. We’ll see what happens with Khabib and what’s next. Tony Ferguson looked amazing. Those two have been lined up three different times to fight and it hasn’t happened. We’ll see how things play out.”
We know for everyone pretending to be upset about the post fight craziness, it’s all good for business, and helps everyone make more money.
"The Nevada State Athletic Commission pulled the footage from us, and there's an investigation going on."

The rematch will most certainly take place.
