Nurmagomedov will make more than three times the amount of money from fighting Dustin Poirier at UFC 242 than he did against Conor McGregor at UFC 229. The pair meet in Abu Dhabi on Saturday in a bid to find out who is the true UFC lightweight champion. It will be the Russian’s first time in the octagon since his comprehensive victory over Conor McGregor last November in Las Vegas. Speaking to TASS, Khabib’s father, Abdulmanap, revealed his son will make more than three times the $2million he took home from UFC 229 where he forced McGregor to submit. "We’ll make 3 to 3.5 [times] more [than the last time],” he explained. “We aren’t fighting for a small change, we know what we’re worth."
