We know a rematch between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov will be big business.
But will it be $100 million worth of business?
According to a recent statement from Khabib’s manager, his connections in Saudi Arabia have gone as far as to offer $100 million to “The Eagle” to face “notorious on their soil.
”I know some people in Saudi Arabia, right now, they met with me, they want to pay $100 million to Khabib to fight Conor in Saudi Arabia,” Abdelaziz claimed.
“They want to pay Khabib $100 million to fight Floyd [Mayweather] in Saudi Arabia.”
The powers that be in Suadi Arabia have become huge players in the combat sports as of late.
Indeed, Andy Ruiz and Anthony Joshua jut had their rematch there, and Khabib defeated Dustin Poirier in Saudi Arabia last year.
In both instances, all fighters left with millions in their pockets.
That said, Khabib and Conor are keen on having their rematch in Russia.
But in the end, UFC has the final say, and a fight of that magnitude would likely either go down in Las Vegas, Nevada or New York City.
Neanderthals, Khabib first has to defeat Tony Ferguson at UFC 249, while Conor already did his part by knocking out Donald Cerrone.
