After an expected win over Edson Barboza at UFC 219 on Dec. 31(IST) in Las Vegas, Nurmagomedov expects to fight Tony Ferguson to decide who is the best lightweight in the world in April or May. Khabib is unbeatable in his career and he is training in American Kickboxing Academy with Daniel Cormier. Here is his statement.

“This is real fight,” Nurmagomedov said Tuesday at a UFC 219 media lunch. “This is most important fight right now. But of course I’m gonna focus on Edson Barboza. To be honest, I think about Edson and Tony Ferguson. I don’t think about Conor McGregor.”

“Conor is in a different situation,” Nurmagomedov said. “He is very big star. UFC wants to put him everywhere, ‘Oh we have Conor McGregor UFC champ.’ He don’t want somebody to smash his face. This is what I think. But he have to defend his title or Tony Ferguson has to become real champ. My opinion, I’m gonna beat Edson Barboza and Tony Ferguson becomes real champ and we have to fight in April or May.”

“If you don’t have injury, if you’re healthy, if you’re champion, you have to defend it, of course,” Nurmagomedov said. “If you’re regular fighter, you can fight whenever you want. … He has to defend his belt. This is not about money. This is sport.”

“I think when [he loses his money],” the Dagestani fighter said, “he’s gonna come back.”
