OddsShark has released odds for whom Conor McGregor will face in his next UFC fight.

This comes after Dana White confirmed earlier this week that Tony Ferguson will get the next crack at lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov, who smashed McGregor in a fourth-round submission victory several weeks ago.

Diaz-McGregor III is the +150 ‘chalk’ at the betting shop. The next-shortest odds belong to these potential foes: Ferguson at +200, Nurmagomedov (+250), Anderson Silva (+800), GSP (20/1) and Floyd Mayweather Jr. (50/1).

The NAC decided to relinquish $1 million of the $2 million payday for Nurmagomedov after a hearing yesterday. The commission will meet again in December and that’s when the final punishment for McGregor and Nurmagomedov will be handed out.

After Nurmagomedov submitted McGregor at UFC 229, he climbed over the Octagon and jumped out in the crowd to attack members of McGregor’s team, inciting a melee that had the Governor of Nevada sprinting out of T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
