McGregor and Nurmagomedov will not be fighting in Russian Federation

Conor McGregor GETTYConor McGregor UFC lightweight champion

"If you do a fight that big, you gotta do it in Vegas", White told TMZ Sports.

In the wake of this violent attack, everyone speculating just how UFC and president Dana White plan to handle their cash cow, White recently offered up the politically correct answer of letting the court handle its business with the Conor Mcgregor first.

The end result was McGregor throwing a moving dolly through a bus window that injured both Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg, knocking them out of UFC 223, with another UFC employee suffering several injuries.

Irish athlete Conor McGregor is now considered one of the most popular fighters in the UFC. "Well he's gotta be punished by the law first". "Back in August of 2017, Diaz's boxing coach Richard Perez said that Diaz will needs "$20-30 million" for the McGregor trilogy. There are five levels of felonies in NY, he's charged with the two lowest, D and E (note: "NY classifies felonies on an A through E basis, in order of severity)".

If Nurmagomedov is still champion by the time the dust settles on the McGregor situation, one would expect that the UFC would immediately book a fight between the undefeated champion and McGregor.

White would also like to see McGregor return to action and fight Nurmagomedov, but he also wants the bout to happen in Las Vegas. There was an initial thought that the fight could take place in Nurmagomedov's home country of Russian Federation. "Khabib will fight in Russian Federation at some point, but it wont be that fight".

One thing White said for certain regarding that fight is that it won't take place in Russian Federation despite rumors to the contrary.

"Khabib will fight in Russian Federation at some point, but it wont be that fight".

Following up, Ariel Helwani of MMA Fighting claims that neither McGregor nor lightweight king Khabib Nurmagomedov were mooted as potential opponents, leaving the likely suspects of Eddie Alvarez, Dustin Poirier and Kevin Lee.

"If you do a fight that big, you gotta do it in Vegas", said White.
