Tony Ferguson Vs Khabib Nurmagomedov May Be Next Says Dana White

Showtime Sports Prez To White: We Can't Release Fake Numbers!

Tony is the interim champ while McGregor's return is still uncertain and he feels he is disrespected when the focus is on Khabib and Conor and not him.

White questioned the domestic figure released by Showtime and added, "the way that they handled that press release, and what they did - I didn't trust them before, and now I despise those (expletive) guys".

Meanwhile, if Ferguson Vs Nurmagomedov does go ahead then it would be an incredible fight, with both men now riding 10-fight winning streaks, but the stakes would be enormous given that the loser would miss out on the money-spinning title unification bout with McGregor that would surely follow on from it. Sports on Thursday. "Ever in combat sports history. Tony ... and then the victor fights Conor for the title", White told Yahoo! "This is a game of time ... we can't let this thing go on forever and not give other guys the opportunity".

When examined in that light, it seems like White was looking for some inflated numbers to tout publicly as UFC owners Endeavor look to pay back the loans outstanding on their July 2016 purchase of the MMA leader, which is now floundering without any true stars outside of McGregor, whom they let compete in a boxing ring for his only fight of 2017.

His multi-million dollar boxing match against Floyd Mayweather Jr in August 2017 gave him the biggest payday of his life.and his UFC career also came to a sudden halt.

"Tony Ferguson has been around for a long time and has earned his dues, Khabib [Nurmagomedov] has earned his dues and the list goes on and on".

He explained: "So, Conor has done very well, he's made a lot of money, and if he decides that he doesn't want to fight again for another, however long, that's up to him".

Ferguson has earned the interim lightweight belt while Nurmagomedov has fought well enough to deserve a title shot of his own, but they can't do much of anything without McGregor. That's his choice and his decision but, the belt has to move on.

"Conor wants that fight again really bad", White said. I need only real fight.

"We could do Khabib versus Tony, and then the victor fights Conor for the title".
