White: McGregor could make UFC return against Cerrone

Leonardo Di Caprio and Khabib Nurmagomedov

Cerrone now does not have a fight booked, but he has his eyes set on former two-division champion Conor McGregor.

However, Khabib has revealed that the Boxing Federation of Russia made him an offer to fight at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow this summer.

DiCaprio then invited Nurmagomedov for dinner, where the fighter says the actor surprised him by not taking photos with fans.

Melbourne Cup-winning trainer Weir facing four-year ban
At a preliminary teleconference late on Friday afternoon, stewards ordered all horses trained by Weir to be scratched from weekend races .

'I think that they will create an interim title, ' Khabib told Sportbox.

Lightweight champion Nurmagomedov received a a nine-month suspension and a fine of $500,000 (€437,500) for his part in the brawl but his sentence could be reduced to six months if he participates in an anti-bullying campaign in Nevada.

The ban ends in April and McGregor could be set for a return by as early as June, with White wanting to make the speculated matchup against Cerrone a reality. "But hey, Irish, Australian, American - (expletive) root for whoever you want". With only a few hours remaining to fight time, however, that's going to be a licensing issue and probably won't happen as a result. With the win, Cerrone extended his UFC records for most finishes (16) and most wins (22) in the promotion, while also setting the record for most fight night bonuses (16). After all, you would think any bout for an interim title would need to involve Tony Ferguson - the man who last held that belt and in fact, never lost it in a fight. "I'm not gonna try to wrestle him".
