McGregor hasn't fought since Nurmagomedov beat him by submission for the UFC lightweight title in October last year.

The Irish fighter last month outlined his plan for two fights leading up to a rematch with the Russian.

That's not enough for Nurmagomedov.

"As for a rematch, to fight for a belt in the UFC, I remember I had something like nine or 10 fights. If he wins 10 fights in a row, then that's completely possible," Nurmagomedov said.

Nurmagomedov adds he's in negotiations to fight Tony Ferguson next, but wants it in New York rather than the UFC's preferred venue of Las Vegas.

Ewan McGregor Hated Keeping His Obi Wan Kenobi Show A Secret From 'Star Wars' Fans

  Ewan McGregor Hated Keeping His Obi Wan Kenobi Show A Secret From 'Star Wars' Fans Ewan McGregor doesn't like keeping secrets, especially from "Star Wars" fans.While the Star Wars prequels are pretty much universally panned, it is a truth universally acknowledged that Ewan McGregor's portrayal of young Obi Wan Kenobi is easily the highlight of that particular trilogy. He brings pathos and humor in equal measure and is beloved by Star Wars fans.

He said because there was ‘dispute’ following the fight , a rematch must happen between the two. That being said McGregor did give respect to his bitter rival as well.

UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov says that rival Conor McGregor needs to win 10 more fights before he gives him a rematch . Speaking with reporters during a press conference in Moscow Friday ahead of the UFC Fight Night event there this Saturday, Nurmagomedov revealed

That's because he disagrees with the Nevada State Athletic Commission's decision to fine and suspend him for a post-fight brawl after his bout with McGregor.

"They offered me to fight in Vegas in March, but I told them that if Vegas officially apologizes for wrongly fining me for that incident on October 6, 2018, then I'll fight there," he said.

"If not, then they can assign me to another date. As far as I know, they're planning in April to hold (a fight card) somewhere in New York, so I'm saying I'm ready for April, or March if Las Vegas apologizes."
