Conor McGregor is set to return to action on January 18, 2020 in a welterweight fight against Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone at UFC 246.
While the fight is at 170 pounds, “Notorious” still plans to go down to lightweight.
In fact, if he beats Cerrone in Las Vegas in just a few short weeks, Conor wants to go back down to 155 pounds, and he wants his rematch against division champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov.
“What Conor wants to do is, he wants to get this fight under his belt, and if he beats ‘Cowboy,’ he wants to turn around as quickly as possible and fight Khabib,” said Dana on The Jim Rome Show.
“He’s at the point of his career right now where a win is a must and he is taking it very serious. We actually talked yesterday and he is in great shape, ready to roll and every excited about this fight,” ended White.
Book my rematch for Moscow.

Of course, Khabib is currently set to face Tony Ferguson at UFC 249 on April 18, 2020, so if he loses a rematch may not have the same intrigue.
Then again, it may, as “Notorious” just wants to get revenge on “The Eagle.”
He can always try to lobby for a title fight against Tony Ferguson, but it seems “Notorious” still has his sights set on Khabib after Nurmagomedov defeated him at UFC 229 last year.
