At the official press conference of UFC 257, Conor McGregor madez Dana White stop in between to give an answer about Khabib Nurmagomedov.
In the week gone by Khabib Nurmagomedov and UFC president, Dana White met each other to discuss the future prospects of Nurmagomedov. The meeting though did not bring out any clarity regarding the real plans of Khabib, however, it did put the onus on the feature fighters of UFC 257, when he apparently said he will come back if he sees anything extraordinary in the forthcoming event.
It is a coincidence or not but UFC 257 features Khabib’s biggest foe, Conor McGregor, in the main event. So, what if the spectacular that Khabib wishes to see comes from the Notorious One. While it is impractical to predict what will happen at UFC 257, but with Khabib not entirely closing the door on a UFC return, and on the other hand Conor making his return and promises to stay more active gives a sense that there is a possibility of a rematch between the two.

In the wake of that, at the official press conference of UFC 257, Dana White was asked about Khabib’s potential return. White, who earlier implied that Nurmagomedov’s return is directly related to how UFC 257 pans out, was starting to reiterate his prior statement, but before he could have formed the sentence, Conor McGregor forced himself into the conversation and did put forward a solid assertion.
At the presser, the reporter indirectly asked if there is any update on Khabib’s return, to which Conor said, “We’ll get him.”
When @danawhite was asked about Khabib’s potential return, @TheNotoriousMMA interrupted to say, “We’ll get him. We’ll get him. “We’ll get him. We’ll get him. What do you think? will Khabib and Conor go for round-2?, It is a matter of future. What’s in hand is UFC 257. UFC 257 is on Saturday. The co-main of the card is also a big one. Michael Chandler will make his debut. He will be up against Dan Hooker. It is a blockbuster on the way.” ” 👀 #UFC257 pic.twitter.com/ztrS8a2ITM
