Khabib Nurmagomedov reveals incredible plan to fight in Africa and donate £65m to charity with Conor McGregor a potential opponent – The Sun

KHABIB NURMAGOMEDOV is planning a £65million African superfight – and wants to donate all the proceeds to charity.

The UFC ace, 30, beat Dustin Poirier in a custom-built 13,000-seater arena in Abu Dhabi on Saturday to maintain his unbeaten record.

And after his victory, the kind-hearted martial artist, 30, outlined his plans to give back.

He said: “They built this arena in two months, they can do it anywhere like the Congo or Nigeria.

“We could fight there and make money and do some charity stuff.

“Africa is in a very bad situation, lots of places don't have drinking water, people don't talk about it but we should.

“I could fight in Africa in January, February or March. I could give all of the money to children's charities.

“We could make between 50 to 80 million dollars and help all of the children there.”

Conor McGregor has been given the green light for a rematch with arch-rival Khabib – if Tony Ferguson snubs a world-title bout.

After Khabib's submission victory, UFC president opened the door to a repeat of the 2018 clash which saw both fighters banned following a post-fight brawl.

He said: "Tony Ferguson is next line [for Khabib] if he accepts the fight.

"We’ll see how this thing plays out, when Khabib will fight again, and if Tony wants to fight.

"Tony Ferguson gets the next shot, and obviously, if for whatever reason Tony can’t take the fight or doesn’t want to fight at that time, then we would figure out what’s next.

"But yeah, Conor would make a lot of sense.

"Conor McGregor wants that fight really badly, and I’m sure the fans would want to see it.

"So we’ll see how this whole thing plays out."
