LAS VEGAS – Another meeting between UFC president Dana White and Khabib Nurmagomedov is on the books. This weekend, White and his lightweight champion will once again meet over dinner to discuss business. According to White, Nurmagomedov – who’s in Las Vegas to corner Islam Makhachev – hasn’t budged on his boss’ pitches to bring him out of retirement , but White isn’t giving up. For White, the division isn’t being held up by this decision, meaning the pursuit of un-retiring Nurmagomedov (29-0 MMA, 13-0 UFC) can continue with the Dagestani fighter as UFC champ. “We’re going to have dinner on Saturday or Sunday and just talk and see,” White said at a UFC 259 pre-fight news conference held Thursday at the UFC Apex.
