The UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is one of the best fighters not just currently on the planet, but he has also established a rather strong case to be one of the very best of all time. With each passing event and each passing UFC fight, the Dagestani is continuously becoming a bigger and bigger draw. The fans are now always curious and eager to find out when the Russian is fighting. While he did only recently fight, it is now already being reported as to when he will be fighting next.
It was recently reported by a Russian media outlet that Nurmagomedov is targetting his return for February or March according to his manager Ali Abdelaziz. The news was further backed and tweeted out by TSN’s noted combat sports journalist Aaron Bronsteter. Here’s what he had to say:
