BREAKING | Khabib Nurmagomedov battles Al Iaquinta in UFC 223 main event, Iaquinta can’t win title

It has been a brutal week for undefeated lightweight star Khabib Nurmagomedov.

First, his originally scheduled opponent, Tony Ferguson, was forced out of their planned UFC 223 lightweight title fight with an injury. Miraculously, UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway then agreed to step in and fight Nurmagomedov for the lightweight title on just six days notice. Regrettably, he too was then forced out of the contest when the New York State Athletic Commission decided they didn’t like the look of his weight cut.
