    Khabib spoke today at the forum in Moscow that they are negotiating with the UFC about two potential fights: on September 7 and December 21st as well: https://khabibmcgregor.com/khabib-to-fight-september-7-2019/

    Do you think it will be a winner of Max vs Dustin in September and Conor in December? Pretty quick turnaround for him isn’t?

    I doubt he could go through the 155 cut twice in such little time

    He has said (directly or via friends/ team) that he won't fight in Vegas anymore, so its likely they'll be looking at California or NYC or somewhere (like he said) like Abu Dhabi or Dubai. He is really well-known internationally now in fight circles and I think his PPV sales will be very interesting and I think a bit higher than people think.

    WME purchased back the 10% stake Flash Entertainment owned in 2018, thus they no longer have any connection to Abu Dhabi.

    Considering WME also returned nearly half a billion dollars of investment from Saudi Arabia recently, I have a hard time believing they are headed to the Middle East any time soon.

    Endeavor setup their deal with ESPN to put a lot less emphasis on the success of PPV, particularly in the short term. Khabib will only be fighting in a PPV friendly commission and time zone.

    He can already sign a contract for another fight because if I am not mistaken he only has one left under his current agreement with the UFC.

    That kinda alarms me, but if he's a guy that typically balloons up between camps all he has to do is stay in shape and he should be ok. Hopefully.

    Correct, though from what we know Khabib can get pretty big in the off season, going through such a weight loss twice could be difficult though if he keeps in shape certainly possible

    Khabib should be sure to negotiate for as much as possible for the 2 fight deal, because if one is against Tony then that's it for him as champion. Tony will beat the tiramisu out of him.
