In the latest edition of his Joe Rogan Experience podcast, UFC color commentator Joe Rogan said that he has no interest in another fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor right away. Here are highlights:

On a possible Khabib vs. McGregor 2: “There’s all this talk about a Conor rematch, because financially that would be a fantastic fight. Financially. But if you look at what happened, that was a dominant victory. There was one round where Conor did pretty good, the third round. Other than that, Khabib just sort of dominated him. I mean, he dropped him in the second, beat the f*cking shit out of him in the fourth. The third was a round where Conor did pretty good, because most of it was standing up.”

On why he thinks people want the rematch: “I guess you could say that’s the same thing that sort of happened in the Nate Diaz fight [with McGregor] and then Conor came back and won the rematch,” Rogan said. “So, this is the argument. The argument is Conor was rusty, he’s out of the cage for two years, he gets back in, let’s do a rematch. Then, financially — Jesus Christ. It was the biggest [UFC] fight of all time. They’re saying it was above 2.4 million pay-per-view buys, which is f*cking bananas. That’s huge.”

On what he wants to see: “If they could talk people into a rematch, I get it. But I don’t want to see that. I want to see Tony. I want to see Tony and Khabib.”
