Khabib tells Dana White he could return for stunning $100m payday but STILL won't rematch Conor McGregor

KHABIB NURMAGOMEDOV has named his price to make a return to UFC – but he has no interest in a Conor McGregor rematch.

The Russian announced his shock retirement from MMA in October following his impressive win over Justin Gaethje.

The UFC lightweight king called time on his career with an incredible record of 29-0.

He laid his gloves on the canvas as he broke down in tears over the death of his late father.

But Khabib, 32, has admitted he would find it hard to turn down an offer of $100 million [£75m] to come out of retirement.

According to Marca, he said: "If you decide to finish, finish.

"But the most likely thing is that Dana offers me money.

"If, for example, it's 100 million dollars, it would be hard to make a decision.

"We'll see what he's thinking. I think it's something that will follow me until the en dof my life."

Khabib defeated arch rival McGregor with a fourth-round submission at UFC 229 in 2018.

McGregor is also set to come out of his third retirement when he faces Dustin Poirier.

And retired Khabib is expected to be in the stands at UFC 257 next month.

But the Russian hardman has no intention of fighting McGregor or Poirier again if he does return.

He responded: "I'm not interested. I beat them both easily."

McGregor has posted three cryptic tweets believed to be aimed at Khabib ahead of the fight.

Khabib will not fight McGregor – but he has made several hints that he could return.

He sent his fans into meltdown as he said 'see you soon' to Dana White on Instagram.

WWE legend The Undertaker has also backed the veteran to return to the Octagon.
