Artem Lobov ran into Khabib Nurmagomedov backstage just days out from UFC 223 this weekend and the resulting encounter was heated, to say the least.

While UFC head Dana White has already said that the promotion has no intention of attempting to organize a fight between the two for the fifth time, Nurmagomedov senior says that a fight with Ferguson is still a key consideration for his son.

Holloway, who has never competed at lightweight in the UFC, has hinted at moving up to the weight class as the cut to compete at featherweight has been tough for him.

Scheduled for 5pm EST. today, the final press conference for UFC 223 will be streamed live on the internet.

Nurmagomedov understands injuries, he himself has pulled out of a fight with Ferguson on two different occasions.


"Emotionally, I feel like I'm still focused on him", said Nurmagomedov during a recent interview on The MMA Hour via MMAFighting.com "Little bit I still focus on him emotionally".

"I think because first April".

"Me and my wife were getting ready for Easter and I got a call from Lloyd, my manager", explained Alvarez.

"As I was completing my UFC pre-fight media obligations on Friday I had an accident on a studio set that tore my ligament in my knee". Penn (16-12-2 MMA, 12-11-2 UFC) as the GOAT of Hawaiian fighters. "I mean, the guy's not in the picture. He's the guy that I want to make a fight with, have the right amount of time to promote the fight, have the fight in the right place, so I'm not interested in asking Conor to take the fight". He will fight Khabib for the undisputed lightweight belt. Regardless of what happens in this fight, Max Holloway deserves respect from UFC fans and fighters alike for taking this chance and saving the main event.

"Max Holloway single-handedly ran through his division, fought the best guys in the world, but anybody who's a fighter understands the difference between someone who's in the peak of their training camp and the difference of someone who is just starting their training camp". "Blessed" is on the road to UFC history and he has no intentions of letting anyone, even Khabib Nurmagomedov, stop him.
