Quoted from BJ PENN, Khabib has received a tantalizing offer from the UFC to do fights against McGregor. The claim was revealed by Khabib's father, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov. However, Abdulmanap ensured Khabib will reject an offer from UFC.

 "They [UFC] offered USD 15 million for a fight again against McGregor. But we want USD 30 million, friends. USD 30 million" Abdulmanap said. The numbers offered by the UFC to Khabib rose significantly. Because, in the first fight against McGregor the Russian fighter only got paid USD 2 million by the UFC.

Although fighting against McGregor was considered as an attractive offer for his son, Abdulmanap called the two names of fighters more worthy to fight Khabib: Tony Ferguson and Dustin Poirier. "They [Ferguson and Poirier] are more worthy and have been waiting to fight against Khabib. We must respect them as fighters. That must be taken into consideration. Between Poirier and Ferguson, I think Ferguson is more appropriate" said Abdulmanap.
