Fights Winner of Holloway vs. Poirier

… Says Dana White

Dana White tells TMZ Sports … the winner of the Max Holloway vs. Dustin Poirier fight this weekend will be rewarded with a shot at Khabib Nurmagomodov in Sept. 

In other words … UFC 236 on ESPN+ PPV is the KHABIB-BOWL!!!

Of course, Conor McGregor was hoping to get a 2nd crack at Khabib as soon as possible after The Eagle wiped the floor with him at UFC 229 back in October. 

But, he’ll have to get in line — because Dana says the winner of Max vs. Dustin will be the interim lightweight champion … “and the next fight is Khabib.”

It’s a big deal because Khabib has become an international superstar since the Conor fight — and it would seem whoever fights him next could cash a HUGE payday. 

There’s more … Dana is also fired up for Israel Adesanya vs. Kelvin Gastelum for the interim middleweight title — and warns Israel that people have been underestimating Gastelum for years. 

But, there’s a huge upside for Israel too — because Dana says he’d also like to see Israel fight Jon Jones … and if he beats Kelvin, that fight could happen sooner than later.
