Conor McGregor already has his sights set on his next UFC fight in the lead up to his boxing bout with Floyd Mayweather.

In an interview with Dana White by MMA Junkie, White stated that following the Mayweather super-fight, the UFC lightweight champion wants to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov in Russia.

“You know what Conor told me? He said, ‘I want Khabib in Russia,’” White told MMAjunkie on Wednesday at UFC headquarters. “Isn’t he (expletive) awesome? He’s like, ‘I want Khabib, in Russia.’ He’s awesome. Conor McGregor is a fucking unicorn. There’s nothing like him. He’s working on boxing Floyd Mayweather and then he’s talking about fighting Khabib in Russia right after.” – Quote from MMAJunkie
