Khabib Nurmagomedov Hospitalized So Title Fight With Tony Ferguson Off
It looks like the title fight (you know, that interim belt that doesn’t mean anything since Conor is the champ champ) at UFC 209 between Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov is off like a dress on prom night. Khabib was taken to a local hospital in Las Vegas on Thursday night after experiencing issues during his weight cut. UFC officials made the announcement following the official weigh-ins for the event.
The UFC is reporting Nurmagomedov was released from the hospital, but was not medically cleared to fight on Saturday. This sucks for both fighters since the winner was supposedly going to get a shot at Conor McGregor next…unless Conor said he wanted to fight somebody else for more money (#CREAM).
Well, at least we get to see Thompson vs. Woodley 2 and don’t sleep on Overeem vs. Hunt because I am sure one of them will be by the time the fight ends (that was hacky).
