UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones has sounded off on a potential rematch between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor.

Jones explained why he believes Nurmagomedov will once again come out on top during a recent interview with TMZ. 

McGregor, who lost to Khabib at UFC 229 by submission in 2018, is expected to fight the winner of Khabib-Tony Ferguson later this year. 

“I typically don’t go against wrestlers, if you were asking me as a betting man,” Jones said (transcript via MMA Junkie). “Wrestlers have the power to dictate where the fight goes – whether it’s going to be a standing match, or whether he’s going to take him to the ground and make it a jiu-jitsu match. I think the cards are always kind of in Khabib’s hands. Conor definitely has a chance. But if I would put my money on it, I’m definitely going with Khabib, for sure.”
