Khabib Nurmagomedov arrived at the UFC 220 workouts on Wednesday and received an extraordinary welcome…
Earlier this week, multiple reports circulated claiming that the UFC is now set to strip Conor McGregor of his lightweight title with Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson set to throw down for the undisputed 155 lbs crown at UFC 223.
Hours later, Dana White confirmed that the Khabib/Ferguson fight will indeed take place at UFC 223 in Boston making it the fourth time that the fight has been booked in the past four years.
A fight between Tony Ferguson & Khabib Nurmagomedov has been booked for 2015, 2016, 2017 and now 2018. They have yet to fight. #UFOTD

However, as of yet, the proposed UFC 223 main event has not been officially announced and, interestingly, the undefeated Russian still seems to be entirely focused on the Irishman rather than ‘El Cucuy’.
Posting on his Instagram account on Wednesday morning, the ‘Eagle’ fired more shots at the SBG man while, spending some time at the UFC 220 workouts, Khabib seemed to only be interested in talking about the ‘Notorious’ one.
