Khabib Nurmagomedov talks UFC 223 fallout, McGregor and Holloway

Isaac Mcdaniel | 03 April, 2018, 04:14

While Conor McGregor (21-3) is the UFC's official lightweight champion, he is expected to lose the title to the victor of Nurmagomedov-Holloway. due to being inactive for almost two years within the promotion.

Of course, that shot ended up going to Max Holloway. who Ortega was scheduled to fight later this year with Max's 145-pound title on the line.

This is just the latest time a fight between Ferguson and Nurmagomedov has been scrapped due to injury.

"My manager called me and told me Tony's hurt and they want you and Khabib, so how do you turn down an opportunity like this?" Khabib Nurmagomedov is totally aware of the threat that Max Holloway poses, and he is not taking this bout lightly. "I think it's going to be a long night for him". And now Holloway (19-3 MMA, 15-3 UFC) and Nurmagomedov (25-0 MMA, 9-0 UFC) will square off for the 155-pound title in Saturday's main event at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., which airs on pay-per-view.

But he never expected to share the Octagon with the UFC's featherweight champion who has not only never fought at lightweight, but who is recovering from an ankle injury that held him out of UFC 222 just last month.

Bisping has been weighing the possibility of one more fight and with the UFC doing a card in Liverpool on May 27 near where he grew up, he has embraced the possibility of fighting there for his swan song.

This is the fourth time this fight has been booked and fallen through. "Max is undeniably validating his "anybody, anytime, anywhere" philosophy by stepping up a weight class to battle an undefeated fighter with only six days to prepare". I think about maybe like [Michael] Chiesa or [Paul] Felder, [Al] Iaquinta, [Anthony] Pettis, somebody because these guys fight with me on the same night.

Asked whether he thinks he will one day fight McGregor, Nurmagomedov said he's a believer. He last fought in a boxing match against Floyd Mayweather last summer. "I can't wait. This guy is one of the most feared guys", said Holloway.
