Conor McGregor wants his rematch fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov to happen in Moscow.

The Irish-born UFC star tweeted that he wants his rematch with Khabib booked “for Moscow.” The tweet came after the most dominating man in the sport at the moment defeated Dustin Poirier over the weekend.  McGregor’s last fight was a loss to Khabib at UFC 229.

It wouldn’t just be a major UFC fight. It could possibly be the biggest fight in the history of the sport if it goes down in Russia. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Sexiest Paige VanZant Photos On The Internet)

Imagine how wild it would get if Putin showed up to support Khabib, who is from the country.

After the carnage of UFC 229, there’s no doubt at all that these two are going to fight again. You can’t have Khabib jump out of the octagon after winning the fight, and not expect a second fight.

There’s a billion percent chance these two fight again if the money is good.

I’m also glad we can pretty much all agree the whole retirement shtick from McGregor was a joke. I don’t think anybody bought it to begin with, but it’s no crystal clear he’ll fight again.

He’ll have to get paid a bunch of money, but it’s going to happen.

If Dana White wants to make some bags of cash, he’ll 100% put this fight in Moscow. Get it done, Dana! Get it done.
