UFC President Dana White managed to convince Khabib Nurmagomedov to return to fighting – if Khabib will be impressed by the performances of potential rivals at UFC 257.

After negotiations with Khabib, White said that the champion can return to fighting assuming he is impressed by the performances of potential opponents at the upcoming UFC 257 tournament. In particular, he is going to watch the McGregor-Poirier and Chandler-Hooker fights.

Khabib also does not exclude the possibility of a fight against Charles Oliveira.  A month ago, the Brazilian dealt with Tony Ferguson, showing an incredible level of stamina and strength.  Also, don’t forget about Khabib’s plans to fight with veteran Georges Saint-Pierre.

Bookmakers believe that the next fight of the Eagle may take place in 2021, and have started to offer odds of 1.71.  The probability of such an outcome is about 55%.

In the case of a rematch with McGregor, Khabib is considered the clear favorite – 1.3 odds are given for his victory, while the Irishman’s success is estimated at 3.55.

Analysts do not expect a win from Saint-Pierre either.  The chance that a veteran who has not entered the octagon for four years will be able to defeat Khabib is 3.47.  You can bet on Khabib’s victory in a battle with Georges with odds of 1.27.
