UFC’s decision to move the UFC 232 pay-per-view from Las Vegas to California has attracted a lot of heat. And the fact that they did such a move to keep Jon Jones on the card made many fighters question the decision.
The latest fighter to take a jab at the UFC is Lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. The Russian commented on Dana White’s Instagram page last day and the comment apparently gave away Khabib’s stand on the issue.
Dana had posted a clip from UFC embedded in which he was seen explaining the situation to Alexander Gustafsson. Below the post, Khabib asked Dana to ‘legalize doping’, which could be a sarcastic shot at the UFC’s decision to move UFC 232.

For the uninitiated, UFC 232 was moved from Las Vegas to California after Jon Jones tested positive for traces of turinabol which was the same substance for which he was suspended a year back. This time, however, UFC and USADA are claiming that the positive test result came due to the residue that was in his body from last year.
While people are still debating about the issue, Jones is still on the UFC 232 card and he will be fighting Gustafsson for the UFC Light Heavyweight title this weekend.
