Dana White: Khabib will not attend McGregor's fight at UFC 257, we will meet again in Las Vegas
Khabib Nurmagomedov is able to decide for himself what to do, and the head of the UFC seems more than willing to give him what he wants.

Khabib, who announced his retirement from the sport back in October, spoke to UFC president Dana White earlier this week about his potential return. White spoke about Khabib's decision during the UFC Fight Island 7 broadcast on ABC earlier today, but it wasn't exactly what fans were expecting.

Rather than confirm his current retirement or return, White announced that Khabib wants to sit back and wait for UFC 257 to take place next weekend on “fight island.""The event will be headlined by Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier 2, while Dan Hooker vs. Michael Chandler will be one of the main events. All four of these lightweights are in the race for the title to bring Khabib back from retirement. It is enough for one of them to impress Nurmagomedov, and he will return to the game.

While the outcome of UFC 257 will be the biggest factor in Khabib's decision to return, the undefeated UFC lightweight champion will not be attending the tournament in person. White confirmed that” Eagle will leave Fight Island after supporting a teammate on Wednesday and meeting with the UFC president in Las Vegas next week.

Dana White Tries to Remove Jon Jones ' Loss from UFC Record
If it hadn't been for the controversial decision to disqualify Jon Jones for elbowing Matt Hamill back in 2009, Jon Jones would have been undefeated, and the talk of “the greatest of all time” would have intensified further. Instead, his record is 26-1-1. But it seems that UFC president Dana White tried to undo this defeat, although he did not achieve much success ...

“I tried my best to get this off the back of his record, which is almost impossible to do. It's crazy, " White said in an interview with ESPN (via BJPenn.com).

- At that time, the Nevada State Athletic Commission was the weakest, the guy who ran it was weak, the people who were involved were weak. At that time, everyone was weak. You should be able to look back and say, OK, let's do this right. So far, nothing good, I've worked really hard to try and take this loss off his record. But it doesn't look right.”

Conor McGregor at UFC 257 — ‘I'll Knock Out Dustin in 60 Seconds"
Former UFC two-division champion Conor McGregor, who often refers to himself as "the mystic mac, “ announces his performance ahead of UFC 257, which will take place on January 23 at Fight Island in Abu Dhabi.

And fans of Dustin Poirier will clearly not like it.

“I like Dustin, I think he's a good fighter” "McGregor said in the upcoming “Countdown to UFC 257" special video, which will air next Sunday on YouTube. “He's even a great fighter. But still a few levels below me. I'll knock out Dustin in 60 seconds.”

McGregor also predicted a first-round knockout when they went to war at UFC 178 back in 2014, and fulfilled that promise with relative ease. Poirier later claimed that he has the toughest hands he has ever felt, although Dustin also insists that he has changed a lot since their first fight.
