The co-stars, Conor McGregor, and Nurmagomedov’s sweetheart could meet head-on again at UFC 257 in January.

Conor McGregor’s long-awaited return to the UFC cage when he faces superstar Dustin Poirier in the main event of his first UFC major card of 2021.

The show, which takes place on January 23, will be the fighter Omar Nurmagomedov, who will make his UFC debut.

Omar is the cousin of UFC lightweight champion Habib Nurmagomedov. It is very likely that “Eagle” is in his cousin’s corner on the ring, according to journalist Chisanga Malata of the Daily Star.

The last time Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov shared the same card; it ended up in chaos.

Connor and Habib are fighting anarchy

….At UFC 229 in 2018, Connor challenged his opponent Habib for the UFC Lightweight Title and lost Connor with a fourth-round subjugation move.

After the fight, a fight broke out in and outside of the octagon cage, involving the members of the teams, Connor and Habib.

Habib jumped from the cage to confront Connor’s teammate, Dillon Danes, and Connor, who was left in the cage, was attacked by Habib’s team members.

As a result, Connor was suspended for six months and fined $ 50,000, while Habib was suspended for nine months and fined $ 500,000.

Habib has since defended the UFC Lightweight Title twice before announcing his retirement at UFC 254 again in October.

Conor McGregor returned to the cage to defeat Donald Cerrone and committed himself once again to a return to the lightweight division, where he plans to become the defending champion.
