Artem Lobov says Conor McGregor deserves rematch with Khabib

SBG Ireland’s Artem Lobov wants to see Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov rematch.

McGregor was dominated and submitted by Nurmagomedov at the blockbuster UFC 229 pay-per-view at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas earlier this month.

“I think that’s the fight that makes sense,” Lobov said during Thursday’s media day for UFC Fight Night 138. “He’s made everyone in the UFC, including Khabib, a lot more money than they ever have made, so why not give him this?

“He’s been the guy that always took everybody on. There’s been many changes of opponents for him. He never blinked an eyelid – just took the fights, no problem. Never pulled out in his life. A true fighter. A fighter’s fighter. A real man. So give him the fight.

“And of course, it requires a good camp,” he said. “It’s not an easy opponent. There were a lot of mistakes made. Many things need to be corrected. So there’s no need to rush.”
