For UFC president, Dana White, the rematch against Khabib Nurmagomedov is the obvious fight to make next if Khabib gets past Tony Ferguson. However, with an impressive win at the welterweight division, Conor is eyeing for the welterweight title too. Besides that Conor has two intriguing super fights at 170, the BMF title fight with Jorge Masvidal and the third fight with Nate Diaz.
