With the allegations swirling about over Nate Diaz and or Gilbert Melendez turning down the Khabib Nurmogomedov fight, one would think no one would want to fight this scary Russian. Not true. Michael Johnson, fresh off a Gleison Tibau knockout, and Jamie Varner have both raised their hands to get a piece of Nurmogomedov.
Granted, he has Abel Trujillo on deck…
I keep reading articles about people not fighting Khabib I feel bad for the guy. After my fight, I have no prob fighting him 4 weeks later!
