For me, I wish to compete here in Moscow, Russia,” McGregor continued. “We know that, this is known. We know what bout I am seeking here in Mother Russia, the people of Russia deserve this inevitable rematch to take place here in Moscow and it will happen. However, I am not waiting around for that man [Nurmagomedov]. That man is a known pullout; a known fearer of risk – he does not take risk – so for me, I am not waiting around.”

However, in a recent interview with Brett Okamoto of ESPN, the UFC president Dana White said that no deals are in place for McGregor to fight in January.

Yes, we are targeting that date for Conor’s return but no deals are even close to being signed,” White told Okamoto.

Justin Gaethje and Donald Cerrone are the frontrunners to fight McGregor in January with Cerrone being the favourite to take on the Irishmen.
