MMA supporters ready impatiently to find out the results of Khabib Nurmagomedov’s conference with Dana White won’t have to hold out way too lengthy.
UFC president White hopped on Instagram to expose that he would be creating an physical appearance just before the major card of UFC on ABC 1 to reveal the end result of his chat with the latest UFC lightweight champion, with the wording of his statement presenting a great deal for supporters to speculate about just before his physical appearance on ABC later on this evening.
“I satisfied with Khabib Nurmagomedov past evening, and these days at 3 o’clock on the east coastline, on ABC the network, I’m heading to converse about his decision, and how it’s likely to influence the Poirier-McGregor battle upcoming weekend, and the co-main occasion in the lightweight division.”
Make of that what you will. Could it signify Khabib’s relinquishing the title, with Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor fighting for the vacant belt at UFC 257?
Could it imply the co-principal celebration between Michael Chandler and Dan Hooker will grow to be a number-one contender struggle?
And does this all rule out any sort of return for Nurmagomedov, or could he still return, quite possibly to face Georges St-Pierre?
There is a ton of queries still hanging in the air, but we should really know a good deal a lot more when Dana techniques in entrance of the ABC cameras later on tonight.
