In accordance with the words of Dana White , the confrontation between lightweights khabib nurmagomedovand Tony Ferguson will not take place because the US wants to get a payment similar to Russian, something impossible under President since both have different contracts. Therefore, the situation is confusing.
It seemed that both fighters would face in early 2017 to determine the next contender at 155 pounds title against current champion Conor McGregor . However, if it is not so, it is not very clear the future of this division in terms of the title fight. Meanwhile, the Russian continues to press.
Because Khabib Nurmagomedov has often attacked the Irish fighter, the American fighter and even the company itself, to get one the starting shot. In this case, use the social network to send a message thatUFC does not want Conor McGregor faces .
This message is for the UFC: It’s clear to the whole world that they’re hiding Conor McGregor from me. Stop lying to the fans as if I do not want to fight with Jose Aldo, I’m ready to fight anyone in my division. Give me a relevant fight, so you can not hide the title from me. I’m asking for a showdown that everyone’s waiting for, give me Tony Ferguson. They have never crossed two types with 9 and 8 wins in the UFC, NEVER IN THE UFC HISTORY.
Russian fighter talks about Jose Aldo because the Brazilian, current king of 145 pounds, said recently that will rise to 155 pounds to compete for the interim title . A news quite surprising and very interesting.Surely in the coming weeks it will be clear what the future of this division is.
Indeed, it seems that Khabib Nurmagomedov will be one of those who either compete against Conor McGregor or the interim title
