UFC fans have joked that rivals Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov should fight at HEAVYWEIGHT.
The pair faced off at lightweight in 2018 – with Khabib submitting the Irishman in the fourth round.
But after retiring in 2020 he appears to have bulked up while working for his MMA promotion Eagle FC.
A picture of Khabib ringside at an event recently emerged on social media.
Meanwhile McGregor has shown off a stunning seven-year body transformation from a lean 145lb featherweight.
The 34-year-old regularly flexes his hulking muscles on social media.
And fans have called for the pair to come to blows once again – but at heavyweight – after seeing the snap of Khabib on Reddit.
One wrote: “He weighs the same as Conor. Khabib vs Conor at heavyweight.”
Another said: “Him and Conor should rematch at HW [heavyweight].”
And part of a third post read: “Him and Conor should just get set to fight for the heavyweight title.”

McGregor is hoping to return to the octagon early this year after breaking his leg in his July 2021 trilogy with Dustin Poirier.
He said in October: “I’m going to be back soon, hopefully. Early 2023 I’m aiming for. Sometime in that first quarter.
The former two-weight champion confirmed online that his return bout would be at welterweight.
But fans are still hoping for a mega showdown with the retired Khabib at heavyweight one day.
