Tony Ferguson Responds To Khabib Nurmagomedov's Brutal UFC 219 Grappling Clinic

Khabib Reveals Ultra-Ambitious Plans For 2018

Khabib Reveals Ultra-Ambitious Plans For 2018

He's a good fighter but he's not champ.

'Tony or Conor, don't matter, ' he said in the post-fight press conference. Conor only has one fight at 155 lb in UFC and he's a champion. "You know, I could never have imagined that in 15 years, I would be going to fight in Vegas in the biggest event in the UFC and give the best performance of the night and Tyson would be there to watch my fight". After weight-cutting issues stopped Khabib from entering the cage against Tony Ferguson, the Russian's layoff extended to 13 months.

After Nurmagomedov's last fight, a submission victory over Michael Johnson at UFC 205, he made a spirited callout of McGregor. I swear, I don't joke.

In fact, either Conor McGregor or Tony Ferguson should end up being Nurmagomedov's next opponent, given that there is no one else in the lightweight division standing in his way to the championship belt.

Giants to interview Jim Schwartz for head coaching job
Spagnuolo is expected to get an interview, but he is not believed to be a serious candidate for the full-time position. ESPN reports that the Giants will interview Schwartz next week while the Eagles are on their first-round playoff bye.

UFC fans, especially his compatriots back in Russian Federation watching the fight live despite the time gap, were eager to find out if Nurmagomedov could keep his ideal pro MMA record (24-0), and make up for the canceled bout with Tony Ferguson due to weight issues.

While Khabib's line may sound a bit like bluster, it's worth noting that the former World Sambo champion does have previous experience of taking on multiple opponents on the same night, as he captured the 2008 Pankration Atrium Cup after recording three victories in one night before a year later defeating both Said Akhmed and Eldar Eldarov at the Tsumada Fighting Championship 3 in Agvali, Russia. He's a good fighter, but I think a lot of people can beat him at 155. Maybe I need to be humble, but these guys talked about me when I was injured. This is my opinion. I can stand, wrestle, grapple.

"I don't know what [McGregor] thinks [now], if he watched or didn't watch".

"The first time I saw Tyson fight was in 2003 when he fought Clifford Etienne", Nurmagomedov said. He shot down one journalist's question about McGregor's interest levels in the challenge he presents before proclaiming that he just wants to enjoy his success.

Terrorists storm into CRPF camp, two personnel injured
Two militants were killed and reports said one more is in the building that was being hit by heavy weapons. Millitant outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad, meanwhile, claimed responsibility for the Fidayeen attack.

"If I fight Conor, he have chance about his boxing, maybe couple of minute". He has to come back and defend his belt.

"When I'm healthy, I always make weight, but now I hope next year I'm gonna stay busy, stay healthy, no injuries, and I want to fight April, May, before Ramadan".
