UFC President Dana White recently spoke to TMZ Sports and said that he is still hoping for a rematch between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov. He also responded to Nurmagomedov’s claims that McGregor handpicks his opponents.

He said: “First of all, Conor does not handpick his opponents. Conor McGregor has fought anybody that we’ve asked him to fight and who’s been available. I mean, guys have pulled out on Conor two or three times. Conor literally went to the gym and said ‘tell me who I’m fighting.’ They hate each other. They hate each other. If you think you’re gonna do an interview with Khabib and he’s gonna say great things about Conor McGregor, it’s never gonna happen. And if you interview McGregor, he’s never gonna say great things about Khabib. They hate each other.

He then added that he still wants McGregor’s next fight to be Nurmagomedov: “Yeah, Khabib if he wins, but I don’t know if Conor wants to wait for him. We’ll see what happens. Khabib has other fights that he needs to focus on right now instead of Floyd Mayweather.
