Khabib Nurmagomedov to Bypass Anti-Bullying PSA, Serve Full 9-Month NSAC Suspension

But with "Cowboy" in Australia for a fan Q&A, it's no surprise Donald Cerrone offers to replace 'The Reaper'.

This means McGregor could fight twice in 2019.

Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone is known for being ready to fight anyone at any time and if you remember he said yes' to a short notice fight vs. Mike Perry at UFC 226.

After accepting a nine-month ban and $500,000 (£385,000) fine from the Nevada Athletic Commission for his role in a post-fight brawl at UFC 229 last October, Nurmagomedov has vowed to never fight in Las Vegas again. While that was going on, members of Nurmagomedov's team were seen invading the Octagon and exchanging punches with McGregor.

Of course, Floyd's flirted heavily with the idea in the past ... remember, he teased a possible MMA fight with Conor McGregor just a year ago - even stepping into an actual cage!

The UFC chief, talking after the UFC 234 pre-fight press conference in Australia, then admitted he would be open to the possibility of the Irishman facing Cerrone.

White: McGregor could make UFC return against Cerrone

"Those two want to fight each other, they've both earned it", said White.

Just hours ago we got the awful news that 185-pound reigning champion Robert Whittaker forced to withdraw from his title fight with Kelvin Gastelum due to hernia issue.

"I can go get a deal right now from the UFC".

White gave no indication when in the summer he would like McGregor and Cerrone to fight, but the fight could headline that show.

He previously said "a lot of people want to see that fight" and that it should happen this year.
