Top 155lb contender Khabib Nurmagomedov told Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour that he thinks McGregor needs to stay at 145lb and fight Frankie Edgar before moving up to the lightweight division

“I think, my opinion, [is that] Conor has to stay in featherweight division,” Nurmagomedov said. “Because, if he moves to lightweight, a lot of people will say, ‘Hey, you [haven’t done] everything in featherweight. Because you have one beef here. This is Frankie Edgar.’ And everyone agrees with me.

“This is first. I think Conor needs to stay in [145] and fight for the title with Frankie.”
