“I will tell you what this is going to be an easy rematch for me this Sunday. But it won’t be my easiest rematch. When I get that rematch against Khabib, it will be an easy rematch and I guarantee this.”

McGregor in conversation with Aaron Bronster talked about the rematch and stated that while the rematch against Poirier is going to be an easy one for him, the hugely anticipated rematch against Nurmagomedov is going to be the easiest for the “Notorious.”

“If we want to continue running, that’s no problem. I will eliminate the rest of them.”

In the past, McGregor has stated that the “Notorious” that stepped inside the ring against Nurmagomedov back at UFC 229 was the worst of him, while Nurmagomedov showed his absolute best. With a focused mind and the position where McGregor is at right now, the former dual champion believes that he can triumph over Nurmagomedov.

Be that as it may, McGregor’s one-punch KO power should act as a deterrent enough to keep Nurmagomedov at a distance. If McGregor is able to keep the fight on the foot, there’s every reason to believe that he could triumph over the undefeated Dagestani legend. However, it will be easier said than done against someone like Khabib Nurmagomedov.
