It looks like the fight is really cursed and MMA Gods don’t want the fans to see Tony Ferguson vs Khabib Nurmagomedov. The fight has been cancelled for the fifth time.

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc around the world. Many sports organizations around the world are forced to shut their door amidst the pandemic. UFC also had to cancel three of its fight cards in wake of the outbreak.

However, with strict travel restrictions imposed in the US and Russia, the lightweight champion is stuck in Dagestan. Last night, the champ took to social media to announce his withdrawal from the fight.

Staying home in quarantine and reading the reaction of people to the situation around my fight, it turns out that the whole world should be in quarantine, governments of all countries, famous people around the world urge people to follow all safety requirements in order to limit the spread of the disease, to save people, and Khabib is the only one relieved of all obligations and must demonstrate free will and train flying around the world, for the sake of fight?Nurmagomedov wrote on Instagram.

I understand everything and I’m definitely upset more than you to cancel the fight, probably like all others, I had many plans after the fight, but I can’t control it all,” Nurmagomedov continued. “The greatest countries and the largest companies of our time are shocked by what is happening, every day the situation changes unpredictably. But Khabib still has to fight, is that what you saying?

Take care of yourself and put yourself in my shoes.”
