Conor McGregor has expressed an interest in fighting in Russia before, and now the UFC’s lightweight champ has teased that this could happen, sometime “soon”.

Prior to McGregor’s August 26th boxing match with Floyd Mayweather, the Irish star said that heading to Russia, for a possible showdown with Khabib Nurmagomedov, was something he’d “like to do.” But, since McGregor’s decision loss to Mayweather, we haven’t heard much from him, in terms of facing the Russian fighter.

Well, recently McGregor posted the comments below on Instagram, which don’t refer to “The Eagle”, but the champion does sound still interested in fighting in Russia.

Nurmagomedov, meanwhile, is booked to fight Edson Barboza on December 30th at UFC 219.
