Silva, the former UFC middleweight champion whose United States Anti-Doping Agency suspension for two banned substances expires on November 10, heard about McGregor's interest and is open to fighting McGregor next.
While McGregor was testing his striking skills inside the boxing ring and enjoying time as a newly cemented multimillionaire, thanks to the showdown with Mayweather, Nurmagomedov has stayed active in the Octagon.
Abdelaziz's only public reaction to McGregor's accusations Thursday was to post a tweet with emoji crying tears of laughter.
Other fights on the UFC 229 main card, scheduled to get underway at 10pm ET, include a Women's Strawweight bout between Michelle Waterson and Felice Herrig, a Light Heavyweight fight featuring Ovince Saint Preux and Dominick Reyes, and Derrick Lewis vs Alexander Volkov in the Heavyweight division.
Do you think Khabib will retire after UFC 229?
"I don't give a shit right now", White said. The Russian champion held court before a crowd that booed him before ending his portion of the press conference 15 minutes into it.
Despite the layoff, McGregor has lost none of the swagger that, along with his fighting skills, has won him so much fame.

"I think Conor's win over Eddie solidifies him as the champion", Pettis said. I have schedule and at 3 p.m. the press conference has to begin because I have a schedule. "I have to make weight and worry about myself".
"If somebody is late, this is not my problem".
"Sixth of October I'm going to maul you. To come and shut this man up; a little rat, a little weasel, a little hard man in groups", McGregor said.
Several thousand pro-McGregor fans packed a theatre expecting to see a confrontation between two fighters who can't stand each other. He didn't say anything the last time. I am siding with the latter here. "I did not plan on this". Now there's a ruckus, they don't want to do 165 I'm like, "what the f*ck?" He doesn't want to be around these people.

This will be his eleventh UFC bout but before that McGregor had 14 fights in which he made his name. Of course I want to go outside, but they don't let me leave the bus. "But if you can't aim for peace, aim between the eyes", he bellowed. "I'm well trained, I've put in the work and we are confident going in, no matter where it goes". "This is never over; never, ever, ever over".
