The company announced Friday that Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov will fight for the interim lightweight title in the main event at UFC 223 on April 3 at Barclays Center.

McGregor could soon be stripped of his lightweight title, which would go to the victor of an upcoming UFC 223 main event bout between UFC Interim Lightweight Champion Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov. He was stripped of his featherweight belt in November 2016. According to UFC.com, Gall landed 26 total strikes and 20 significant strikes, while Punk had six and zero, respectively in those categories.

An intense Ferguson appeared on MMA Fighting's 'The MMA Hour', to discuss the impasse with host Ariel Helwani.

"I have a tough opponent", said Nurmagomedov. "Who knows, he might never fight again". "I don't think he really has the stopping power to really finish him". When you fight him, you tend to make the big bucks.

"They were saying: "You guys are fighting for the undisputed title".

"Right now, with the position we're in, Conor's saying, 'Maybe I'll come back in August, maybe I'll come back in September". And then the whole bunch of shit just went down. But I think Khabib powers out of them and wears him down.


"I don't know. I don't wait for anybody. He's a good dude", White said of Punk.

Founder of MyMMANews.com - After writing for Ultimate MMA magazine and serving as the editor for U.S. Combat Sports, both of which went on hiatus, I made a decision to venture out on my own and enlist a staff of writers and photographers that could help me achieve my goal of telling stories that would otherwise go untold.

"I'm going to take this belt, and we'll see what happens". What the fuck is that?

John Kavanagh has been at the side of UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor for the majority of his combat sports career.

He contradicted White's comments by claiming that McGregor - who won the title against Eddie Alvarez 13 months ago - has already been stripped.
