So Khabib Nurmagomedov Says It’s “Clear” UFC is “Hiding” Conor McGregor From Him…

Tony Ferguson and the UFC are reportedly at odds over what he should get paid for his next bout, but in the meantime, Khabib Nurmagomedov continues to campaign hard for a bout with ‘El Cucuy”.

Since Conor McGregor won the 155 title at UFC 205, there’s been no shortage of speculation as to what’s going to happen next with the division’s title picture. McGregor is expecting a child and could be taking a break, and as a result, there’s been a lot of calls for Nurmagomedov – Ferguson.

UFC boss man Dana White has reported that Ferguson wants the same money as Nurmagomedov, if they fight. The UFC doesn’t want to do that. As a result, the promotion offered “The Eagle” a bout with Jose Aldo, but Nurmagomedov doesn’t believe defeating the 145 champ will secure him a fight with McGregor.

So, yeah, it’s complicated. Recently Nurmagomedov posted the comments below on Instagram, and the vaunted grappler had some interesting things to say about the UFC…

This message to @UFC : It is clear to everyone that you hiding Conor from me. But stop lying to your fans like I don't want fight with Aldo, I'm ready to fight with anyone in my division. Give me relevant fight, so you won't be able to hide the belt from me after. But not the fight, where people say after my victory: he is too small, Khabib too big for him etc. I'm asking you for match that whole world is waiting for, give me Tony. You have never matched up two guys with 9 and 8 win streak in UFC, NEVER IN UFC HISTORY. #telltruthtopeople ❗ Хочу обратиться к @UFC : Всему миру понятно что вы прячете от меня Конора, но не надо рассказывать свои сказки фанатам, перестаньте врать типо я не хочу боя с Альдо, я готов драться с любым бойцом в моем весе. Дайте мне конкурентный бой, после которого вы не сможете прятать от меня пояс. А не тот бой, чтоб люди говорили после моей победы: Он же маленький, Хабиб слишком большой для него и т д. Сейчас я у вас прошу бой, которого ждёт весь бойцовский мир, дайте мне Тони. Вы в своей истории не проводили бой между двумя бойцами у одного из которых 9 побед подряд в рамках UFC а у другого 8 побед. #говорителюдямправду #юфсишныеигрыопятьвтеме

Hopefully this all gets sorted out soon. Aldo – Nurmagomedov is an interesting fight, no question, but considering the runs Ferguson and “The Eagle” have been on, that’s a bout that’s gotta happen.
