"He champion for a reason at 145".
Nurmagomedov is 25-0 in his career. 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. I say I need to fight for title and I don't care who ... bring anybody.
Saturday night was supposed to be the long awaited fight between Ferguson and Nurmagomedov, with the fight being scheduled three previous times. That's why my name is Khabib and other name is UFC. UFC's name is UFC. "I would not do this". For the fourth, yes fourth, time, a fight between Tony Ferguson and Khabibi Nurmagomedov will not happen after Ferguson (23-3) was forced to pull out of the fight due to a torn LCL from a freakish tripping accident. "He's a very good fighter, I respect him like fighter, and I'm preparing like it's going to be the hardest fight of my life". I'm going to show you guys how I'm tough.' Of course I am tough, but I am smart, too. I have best win-streak now, in UFC. Sure, you have contenders who rise through the ranks without a blemish on their resumé with such a wide and varied selection of ways that you can lose, it's damn near impossible to make your ascent without encountering at least one instance of adversity.
The California-born fighter was due to take on Khabib Nurmagomedov in a lightweight title fight at UFC 223 in Brooklyn on 7 April. My manager called me.
Now, with the news that the UFC's fourth attempt ended in another injury withdrawal, fans are beginning to wonder if the Ferguson-Nurmagomedov match-up is cursed.

"I do not understand", Nurmagomedov said. I'm cleared and ready to fight now. "But now he's in different territory, different weight class, different animal".
Nurmagomedov reiterated this sentiment and moved on from the idea of facing McGregor at UFC 223.
However, featherweight champion Max Holloway has agreed to replace Ferguson at short notice for the headline fight.
