UFC News – Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov dates
Conor McGregor’s proposed fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov will take place at UFC 229, UFC 230 or UFC 232, according to the new lightweight champion’s manager Ali Abdelaziz.
“Conor’s running out of money,” he told TMZ. “This is why he agreed to fight Khabib. It’s okay, we’re gonna contribute of him making some money.
“But at the end of the day, we owe him an a** whooping. He needs to get his a** whooped from Khabib and get it out of the way.
“If this is what Dana want’s we will do it. I know Khabib wanted to fight Georges St-Pierre, but if this what the fans want, what Dana wants, what the UFC wants, we’ll do it.”
UFC News – Kevin Lee explains why he wants Georges St-Pierre fight
Kevin Lee has revealed he’s eyeing a fight with Georges St-Pierre due to the current states of the lightweight and welterweight divisions.
“Right now, [what] makes the most sense is to really correct the divisions,” 25-year-old Lee told The Straits Time.
“The 155-pound and 170-pound [divisions] are so messed up right now. You’ve got three titles between the two divisions already, so they’ve got to add another weight class.
“I think me and Georges [St. Pierre] for the 165-pound title makes the most amount of sense. You do Conor [McGregor] and Khabib [Nurmagomedov] in October, you do me and Georges in November, at Madison Square Garden.
“And maybe you do Tyron [Woodley] and Colby [Covington] to figure out the 170-pound division.”
