Manager: Khabib Nurmagomedov Won't be Fighting For Any "Fake Belt"

Branson: Focus on big picture, not small detail

" - Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, Khabib Nurmagomedov's father, speaking to RT Sport".

The UFC has yet to announce the news, but the possibility of a show in Russian Federation was, at a press conference following the UFC 205 event at Madison Square Garden, New York, back in November 2016.

The idea of taking on Nurmagomedov in Russian Federation is one that Conor McGregor has been fond of.

"You know what Conor told me?"

The news of a Moscow event in September appears to bring the chance of a Nurmagomedov-McGregor matchup a step closer.

The 29-year-old did so by registering a unanimous decision victory over Edson Barboza, who is regarded by many to be the most risky striker in the 155lbs.

According to UFC president Dana White, his next fight will be a lightweight title unification bout with Ferguson.

"Most likely, this event is going to be connected with us".

Rumors are starting to build that the UFC may be trying to put together an interim title fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson in the coming months, but "The Eagle's" manager appears to have just thrown a spanner in the works.

"If he waits - I don't think Conor wants to fight until August, but if he waits until August or September, that's around two years since the belt has been defended, and that can't happen". "We have many good fighters who can fill the arena". Rustam Khabilov and Islam Makhachev can also join. We appreciate everything the UFC has done for us, but it's time for a real belt. Plus it's very interesting for [Russian] fans.
