Khabib waiting on new opponent after Holloway declared medically unfit

Khabib Nurmagomedov Max Holloway

The Irish fighter gate-crashed a media day on Thursday and caused chaos with his entourage when he attacked a bus ferrying fighters in the venue's loading bay, an assault that led to injuries to some of those aboard the vehicle. Tomorrow's event will go down in Brooklyn, New York. Then it looked like Anthony Pettis would get the fight, but that didn't happen.

In the fall of 2016, Nurmagomedov accepted an opportunity to meet Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight title at UFC 205, but the UFC brass wasn't convinced that the fight would draw big pay-per-view numbers and later made a decision to replace the Russian with Conor McGregor.

Believe it or not, Nurmagomedov has been involved with nine different fights that have been cancelled for one reason or another during his UFC career beginning with a January 2014 bout versus Gilbert Melendez that the UFC cancelled for undisclosed reasons.

However, he was quickly stripped of the featherweight title and has never defended his lightweight crown. "Send me location. Of course, I am UFC fighter, lotta people follow me, I have to be ideal for example, but nobody flawless. when somebody like you, UFC fighter, talk about you bad, or he try to go bully with him, one hundred percent I'm gonna give him back". "It's never happened in almost 20 years of doing this so we'll see".

And they didn't just win-the University of Maryland-Baltimore County absolutely dominated Virginia, the number one overall seed. That strategy overall has paid dividends: It's the best offensive team head coach Jay Wright - now with two titles - has had.

Al Iaquinta is Khabib Nurmagomedov's new opponent in the main event of UFC 223.

Nurmagomedov was originally set to face Tony Ferguson at the main event, but was pulled from the fight at the beginning of the week due to injury.

Then original headliner Max Holloway was pulled from the lightweight title showdown against Nurmagomedov after the athletic commission ruled that it would be risky for him to make weight for the bout.
