Jon Jones LOVED the first fight between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov — but tells TMZ Sports if they run it back, expect another long night for the Irishman.
It’s no secret Conor desperately wants a second crack at Khabib after he tapped out at UFC 229 back in Oct. 2018. Khabib recently said he has no interest in giving that “idiot” a rematch.
But, chances are it’s more likely to happen than not — so we asked Jon Jones who he’d pick if they do it again.
“If I would put my money on it, I’m definitely going with Khabib,” Jones said … “For sure.”
“I think the cards are always kind of in Khabib’s hands. But, Conor definitely has a chance.”
Jon says he believes wrestlers typically have the advantage since they can dictate if the fight goes to the mat or not — and obviously, Khabib has the superior ground game.
Oh, and if Khabib REALLY shoots down a $100 million offer, Jon joked — “Give me the money! I’ll whoop [McGregor’s] ass for the homeboys!”
