Dana White Says Things Are Good With Khabib Now

At UFC 230, lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov roughed up superstar Conor McGregor in the cage, then jumped out of the cage and into the audience to fight McGregor’s teammates.

It was… pretty ugly.

It’s expected that ol’ Khabib is going to face some form of punishment at the hands of the Nevada State Athletic Commission. In fact, the Commission held onto Nurmagomedov’s paycheck in anticipation of the fines he’ll be hit with.

The UFC, on the other hand, wasted no time dropping the hammer on Khabib’s teammates who participated in the extracurricular fracas. In particular, they pulled UFC Fight Night 138 headliner Zubaira Tukhugov from his fight, and replaced him with Michael Johnson.

This left Khabib pretty heated, and he threatened to quit the UFC.

But UFC boss Dana White says Khabib has calmed down, and everything is good now. As per TMZ Sports:

Dana White tells TMZ Sports … he and Khabib Nurmagomedov have worked out their issues and “The Eagle” will not be leaving the UFC.

“We’re good with Khabib,” Dana said … “He’s staying. This will all work out.”

“We worked it out. We’re gonna get everything worked out. Obviously, he was a little upset and a little fired up.”

He continued, “Listen, guys get very emotional man and that was a very emotional fight for him. At the end of the day, Khabib is a great guy and we’ve always had a great relationship with him.”

The other question … does this mean Khabib AND Zubaira will remain on the UFC roster?

“Well, [Khabib’s] staying in the UFC,” Dana said … telling us he’s not 100% sure about Zubaira’s future.

He did assure us that Khabib is happy and “this will all work out.”

Of course everything is good now. The UFC’s pay-per-view stars are dwindling big time, so they need Khabib.

White: GSP Needs Win Over Contender For Khabib Title Shot

Not even the ex-pay-per-view “King” has that kind of clout.

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, who also held gold at 185 pounds before taking another retirement hiatus from mixed martial arts (MMA), does not have the luxury of just showing up and demanding a lightweight title shot.

That’s according to promotion president Dana White, who probably feels like he got burned by “Rush” when the French-Canadian phenom captured the middleweight crown, then handed it back in when guys like Yoel Romero were looking for a title shot.

Shame me once, and all that jazz.

“How does Georges St-Pierre jump over all the guys fighting in that division to face Khabib (Nurmagomedov)?” White told ESPN. “Just because all of a sudden he wants to come out and fight this guy — he doesn’t get to do that. If Georges St-Pierre is serious, listen, I’ll give you a fight with one of these guys in the top five. If you win, you’ll be in position for a title shot. We don’t even know if Georges St-Pierre can make 155 pounds. You know what I mean?”

We know what happened the last time he jumped weight classes.

It’s tough to say when Nurmagomedov will fight next. “The Eagle” is expected to serve a disciplinary suspension for his role in the UFC 229 post-fight brawl, which could leave him on the shelf for an undetermined amount of time.

Aside from that, it would be very difficult to leapfrog Tony Ferguson, who is the winner of 11 straight and a legitimate threat to the Dagestani’s crown. Though all things considered, that would afford St-Pierre enough time to fight a top contender.

I hear this guy is looking for a new opponent.
