Nurmagomedov says he could reconcile with McGregor

MOSCOW (AP) — UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov says he can imagine a reconciliation with Conor McGregor after the bitter feud around last month's title fight.

Nurmagomedov says "everything is possible. Just as McGregor and I feuded, so we could reconcile."

He adds he doesn't know how he would react when he sees the Irish fighter next, saying "who are we not to forgive one another when the Almighty forgives us?"

Nurmagomedov says he would prefer a fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. — without giving details of how it might be arranged — over the UFC's preferred option of Tony Ferguson.

Nurmagomedov says "for legacy and in the sense of the money aspect, and in a sporting sense, I think the Mayweather fight is much more interesting."
