Conor McGregor could be granted his wish of a rematch against UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov if the Irishman beats Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone in his January comeback, says UFC boss Dana White.

McGregor returns to the octagon to face Cerrone on January 18 at UFC 246 in Las Vegas.

It will be first outing for ‘The Notorious’ since he was beaten via fourth-round submission by Khabib in the same city in October of 2018.

The Russian, meanwhile, faces Tony Ferguson in a long-awaited showdown on April 18, most likely at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Provided both McGregor and Khabib come through to win those bouts, UFC boss White says they would meet again “pretty soon.”
