A mega-money offer has been made to Khabib Nurmagomedov to have a rematch with Conor McGreogor, according to the Russian’s father.
The highly anticipated fight between the pair took place in October and Nurmagomedov beat McGregor by fourth-round submission in Las Vegas.
However, the biggest pay-per-view card in UFC history, raking in 2.4million buys, will forever be remembered for the chaos that ensued afterwards with a mass brawl breaking out involving members of Nurmagomedov’s entourage.
Despite reports suggesting ‘The Eagle’ could face a nine month ban as a result of his actions, his father, Abdulmanap says an offer has already been made.

“They offered $15million (£11.8million) to rematch with Conor,” Abdulmanap told Sport 24’s Yaroslav Stepanov.
“But we want $30million, guys. $30million!”
While the lucrative fight is high on the agenda, Abdulmanap believes the likes of former interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson are ahead of McGregor in the line to face his son who is the reigning undisputed lightweight champion.
He added: “There are guys who deserve and wait for Khabib. We must respect them as fighters.
“This point should also be taken into account. Both the Dustin Poirier and [Tony] Ferguson. Ferguson, I think it deserves it.”
Rumours had circled that the the 30-year-could soon retire, but his father has stressed that is simply speculation.
He said: “Khabib has three to four battles left. I think that’s enough. How it goes, the Almighty alone knows, but the plans are as follows.
“I always had this dream – one fight (in Russia). Wherever, whenever, whoever. For the UFC to give us that.
“And I will be fighting for that right. We’ve spent almost an eternity (in the sport).
“With injuries, and without them, thinking of retiring, thinking of staying, thinking of the health. We came back, we proved our point, we won it.
“That is it. There is no motivation left. We won the belt, defended it.”
