While the UFC 253 is still up, Dana White already has a backup plan in case Khabib withdraws from the card. It is to assume that Dana White hears the other news from Khabib which leads to the cancellation of the show.
Dana White, as reported by the formal mass media, stated that the UFC 253 was not off the table. Currently, he just waits to hear from Khabib. He would let Khabib take time to think and tell Dana White when he was ready. As he mentioned that he was leaving khabib alone until he would be ready to talk.
Dana had actually reached Khabib on “that day”. There was no report on the exact conversations between the two guys. However, it was pretty clear that Khabib would need enough time to think. Dana White hasn’t heard back from Kabib since.
