    Dana White is finally warming to the idea of a possible superfight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Georges St-Pierre.

    First, though, the UFC president would like to see Nurmagomedov defend his lightweight title against former interim champ Tony Ferguson, who is teased to challenge ‘The Eagle’ in the new year.

    After that, White says Khabib vs. St-Pierre could be a ‘fun fight to make’.

    “Tony fight has to happen first,” White said on Instagram Live, via MMA Fighting’s Jed Meshew. “Tony Ferguson vs. Khabib and obviously if Khabib wins that fight, the GSP fight would be a fun fight to make for sure.”

    White also commented on…

    At least he isn't backing down from Tony has to get the next crack. It would be criminal if he didn't.

    Lmao! Dana White is so full of shit..

    Just back in July:

    “Well there’s two things — first of all, who doesn’t love Georges St-Pierre? Love Georges St-Pierre, the best ever as far as human beings, great guy, love him. Georges St-Pierre and I had a deal, he was going to fight Bisping at 185 pounds and if he won, he would defend the title. He bailed on that. Didn’t do it. So you can’t just come out and hand pick fights that you want for titles.

    Surprised?

    "We will never have women fighting in the UFC."

    "Jon Jones will never main event again, ever."

    "The UFC is not for sale."

    "GSP is on his way to the hospital" etc...

    Hopefully Dana is speaking for the UFC right now and it sounds like they have their priorities right. Tony should come first. Then GSP can challenge whomever wins for the LW belt later. Definitely Tony first though.

    I don't even consider McGregor in the picture any more. He needs to come back and win a fight first and then he should get consideration. Maybe McGregor can fight the winner of Nate/Jorge first?
