Coach says McGregor will fight Khabib

It is however unlikely White would allow Diaz to challenge for a world title in his first fight back with the UFC champion moving quickly dismiss the idea of making that fight earlier this year. UFC president Dana White also told Okamoto there's "no update" on when Diaz might fight again. Ronda Rousey is a full-time WWE wrestler now, Jon Jones remains unable to fight and it's anybody's guess when McGregor will fight again after he attacked a bus transporting fighters prior to UFC 223 in April. However, one of the most colorful personalities the promotion has ever seen could finally be making his return this summer, and that's where we will begin our look at some of the biggest UFC headlines for Tuesday, May 1.

McGregor is now facing multiple charges of assault and has a court date set for June 14.

"We'll see what happens". A report from MMAFighting.com indicated Diaz has been presented with multiple top-five opponents, though his two-time foe Conor McGregor and lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov were not among his options.

McGregor is due back in court on June 14 to appear before a judge regarding those four charges stemming from the bus assault. "We talked. It's good", White said at the UFC 223 post-fight presser.

Nate Diaz is getting ready to make a high-profile UFC return, as he's sick of waiting around on the sidelines.

Just wait for another announcement on the Taj Mahal as a decision is at an advanced stage, he said. They might put up signs outside to say that they have developed the amenities.

White has repeatedly said that the UFC will look to go to Russian Federation for an event, however, the UFC chief said that Nurmagomedov will not fight McGregor there if the Dubliner returns to the promotion. However, White says it won't take place in Russian Federation, as the UFC is expected to debut in Nurmagomedov's homeland in the near future.

"No [it will not be in Russia]".

"If you do a fight that big, you gotta do it in Vegas", said White.

There's been a lot of talk about this Khabib fight and it seems to be brewing towards this one.
