Interim Title? No, Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. …

UFC lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov told a Russian media outlet that not only is he no longer fighting in Nevada after dealing with their out of control athletic commission, but that he might be on ice long enough for the UFC to create an interim title. He believes if that happens, former interim champ Tony Ferguson and Dustin Poirier should fight for it. While a Ferguson vs. Poirier fight is a dream come true, it’s not what the division or sport of mixed martial arts. It needs Nurmagomedov vs. Ferguson.
