Khabib Nurmagomedov Has An Offer For A Boxing Fight This Summer

Just hours ago we got the awful news that 185-pound reigning champion Robert Whittaker forced to withdraw from his title fight with Kelvin Gastelum due to hernia issue.

Standard for Cerrone. He has been perhaps the fighter most ready to fight anyone at any time for the past several years.

Cerrone and McGregor exchanged messages via social media earlier this year after "Cowboy" scored a victory vs. Alexander Hernandez to improve to 35-11 overall.

UFC president Dana White is hoping to see Conor McGregor return to the Octagon in the summer following his six-month suspension, the Washington Post report.

After all, the Nevada State Athletic Commission delivered its verdict on the controversial aftermath of UFC 229 and handed the 30-year-old Russian fighter a nine-month suspension and a $500,000 (£380,950) fine.

'I think that they will create an interim title, ' Khabib told Sportbox. "But hey, Irish, Australian, American - (expletive) root for whoever you want".

"If these two want to fight, I'm down". I love it, man. With the win, Cerrone extended his UFC records for most finishes (16) and most wins (22) in the promotion, while also setting the record for most fight night bonuses (16).

Khabib Nurmagomedov expects the UFC to stage a lightweight interim title fight between Tony Ferguson and Dustin Poirier in his absence. "I'm not going to try to wrestle him, I'm going to (expletive) stand and give you all what you want to see".
