Tony Ferguson Never Wanted Khabib Nurmagomedov's Money to Fight

Though UFC 209 on Saturday night will feature an interim lightweight title fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson, neither fighter can stop talking about Conor McGregor. McGregor will meet Nate Diaz in a welterweight rematch on August 20, 2016, at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

"I expect Conor's next fight to be in the UFC, in mixed martial arts, and the victor of Khabib and Ferguson", White told TMZ Sports late last month.

McGregor, who hasn't fought since defeating Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205, is desperate to fight Mayweather and doesn't plan on locking horns with anyone other than the American.

The former Ultimate Fighter victor and red-hot lightweight wanted more money - or equal to what Nurmagomedov was making - to accept the fight. "We gotta see what happens with the Mayweather talks and all that, but yeah I do believe that will happen, yes", he said.

Police Move in on Water Protectors Who Remain at Standing Rock
A policy adviser to the Standing Rock Sioux tribe could not immediately confirm who set the structures ablaze. The arrests occurred a day after the Army Corps of Engineers ordered protesters to clear the camp by a 2 p.m.

According to the time stamp on the video, the main event of Nurmagomedov vs. Bear went down only three days after the elite UFC lightweight contender turned nine. With the money he makes can you blame him?

But "The Notorious" got the gig in the end and Nurmagomedov fought and beat Michael Johnson at Madison Square Garden instead.

Nurmagomedov said: "I think he's much better than Conor".

"Mixed martial arts is the freest form of combat sport there is. MMA is one of the biggest sports in the world and I think after this fight its going to change a lot of things".

She was showing the signs: pacing, "star gazing", waxing of the teats, irritability, anxiety, according to zoo owner Jordan Patch. The baby is expected to be born sometime in the next few days. "April the giraffe is expecting a calf".

Everything said, Kavanagh "selfishly" wants McGregor to stay in MMA and defend his title against Khabib Nurmagomedov or Nate Diaz.

"I think this is my toughest match-up, but we'll see".

"I no understand this fight you know-UFC give him this fight like seven, six weeks before the fight", Nurmagomedov added. "So that's my love and I'm a big fan of Conor's fighting in MMA", he said. "I'll be honest, like right from the beginning I've been used to hearing "you can't do this, you can't do that, you can't".
