Manager: Khabib Nurmagomedov Won't be Fighting For Any "Fake Belt"

Manager: Khabib Nurmagomedov Won't be Fighting For Any

Staff at Moscow's Olympiyskiy Stadium (Olympic Stadium), which has a capacity of up to 35,000 spectators, confirmed to RT Sport that a UFC show is booked at the venue for September 14 and 15. The Irish fighter hasn't fought in the cage since November, 2016, when he stopped Eddie Alvarez.

Earlier today, the Straight Blast Gym Ireland head coach filmed himself him watching Nurmagomedov's UFC 148 bout with Gleison Tibau, an act which led many eagle-eyed viewers to assume a fight with the No.2-ranked lightweight is on the cards.

Nurmagomedov secured his 25th career win when he defeated Edson Barboza at UFC 219 in December.

"You know what Conor told me?"

"Khabib's next fight, we're not fighting for no damn interim belt", Abdelaziz said.

Winter weather advisory in effect for Friday
Forecasters at the weather service in Birmingham said winds could be sustained at 20-30 miles per hour with higher gusts. This is a complex system as we have an arctic front moving through this morning, dropping our temperatures.

Nurmagomedov is coming off a dominating unanimous decision victory over Edson Barboza.

The trio of Khabib Nurmagomedov, Tony Ferguson, and the champ Conor McGregor have been embroiled in a battle for control of the division - despite the fact that none of them have ever faced each other yet.

"Most likely, this event is going to be connected with us". [Khabib Nurmagomedov] will fight in April first with Tony Ferguson, and then we will receive a date for a fight with [Conor] McGregor.

"I think that Conor, Diaz, and Ferguson, instead of fighting with Khabib, will be better off fighting against each other 30 times", Abdulmanap said. Rustam Khabilov and Islam Makhachev can also join. We appreciate everything the UFC has done for us, but it's time for a real belt. Plus it's very interesting for [Russian] fans.
