    UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is becoming more and more definite about his long-overdue fight against Tony Ferguson. In a recent interview in Uzbekistan, “The Eagle” mentioned a possible date and venue for his next title defense against “El Cucuy.”


    “Even if they(Vegas) apologize or not,we found a new venue for the fight. It’s going to be in Brooklyn most likely,im not sure about the date yet.We’re still discussing it with the UFC but it looks like it will happen at the begining of April.”

    Khabib and Tony's inactivity is fucking annoying enough as it is. Is it really necessary to schedule a fight you've already tried to make several times and failed 6 months in advance?

    Reading comprehension, pal. I'm complaining about scheduling the fight 6 months from now, not the fight itself.

    err i see but no deal is complete yet. they were trying to do it in Russia but something didn't fall through but the fight is inevitable, that's probably why Khabib make it sound like it's a sure thing. cuz who else is he going to fight?

    Something is fishy here. There is no question about Tony being the top contender. Both fought months ago and there are no other LW fights that need to play out. Both fighters and the fans want it. So, why hasn’t this been booked yet? Doesn’t add up.

    I'm tired of hearing about this "fighting", "expected to fight", "Looking to fight in march"

    Fuck off with this failure......it's a lot of talk but no walk

    Don't care anymore, if it happens i will watch the vids on me favourite site

    I have no desire to hear any build up or hype for this fight. I want to be surprised when both of them show up in the cage. After 4 failed attempts it feels like this fight is never gonna happen. And why are they aiming for New York? Seems like there is more opportunity for fuckery with the State Athletic Commission there. I really hope that this fight goes down this time.
