It was his first fight since his win over McGregor, which ended in ugly scenes as brawls broke out in and out of the ring, and he was subsequently handed a nine-month suspension and a $500,000 fine.

McGregor recently announced his retirement from the sport but UFC supremo Dana White revealed Mcgregor has suggested he wants to return.

And after Khabib’s success at UFC 242, McGregor tweeted: “Book my rematch for Moscow.”
