CONOR MCGREGOR attacked both Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov with a foul-mouthed tweet after their UFC title fight was called off.

However, when speaking to ESPN, UFC president Dana White revealed that the Notorious wasn't offered a short-notice fight against Nurmagomedov, claiming that it would have been a tough weight cut for the Irishman. Nurmagomedov said. "I need eight weeks, train hard, last one week make weight and go to the war".

"As I was completing my UFC pre-fight media obligations on Friday I had an accident on a studio set that tore a ligament in my knee", Ferguson revealed on Sunday night. This will also give Holloway the chance to become the only other fighter besides Conor McGregor to hold two belts simultaneously.

The event is UFC 223 and it'll go down in Brooklyn, New York, but that doesn't tell the entire story. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow. Nurmagomedov continued. "Six days for make weight, it's good days". The reason being that Tony Ferguson has been forced out of the bout due to a knee injury. I've got business to handle at 145. "I think Poirier, Alvarez ... maybe Chiesa, Pettis because these guys fight same night". "I said, you know, 'doesn't matter.' I say, 'if this is for real belt, I say yes'".

Alternatively, if you don't have BT Sport, you can watch the preliminary fights on the UFC's Fight Pass service. 170 pounds - where I have 12 fights.I mean, GSP, literally if he wants a money fight, he's an athlete.

"I believe I'm the best man in the world and to be the best, you got to beat the best. The victor of this fight will be the champion". I don't fight for the money.

St-Pierre dominated the welterweight division as champion for years until his retirement in 2013.

The Irishman would eventually take time off before putting his UFC career on hold to fight Floyd Mayweather in a cross-code boxing match in August previous year. Let's say Nurmagomedov is the champion, or a top-two contender. I'm cleared and ready to fight now.
