Fights Winner of Holloway vs. Poirier
… Says Dana White

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.
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.
Don’t miss the amazing card — which you can only see on ESPN+ PPV on Saturday (click here to order).
