Khabib may share one of the most heated feuds in MMA history with Conor McGregor but even still, he will not rule out the possibility of making up with him.
Speaking to the media in a recent press conference (via Indian Express), Khabib explained how he could still imagine a future where he and McGregor have squashed their beef – no matter how unlikely that might seem.
“Everything is possible. Just as McGregor and I feuded, so we could reconcile.
“Who are we not to forgive one another when the Almighty forgives us?”
Right now, neither man has been scheduled for a fight – with both expected to know a lot more about their current status after the Nevada State Athletic Commission make a decision on their future.
Of course, the UFC 229 post-fight melee seemed as though it would detract somewhat from the dominant performance Khabib was able to turn in just before that. But as time has gone on, the victory that stood as the first defense of his UFC lightweight title has well and truly came to the fore.
Whether or not we’ll see Khabib vs. McGregor II is unclear at this point.
