UFC 209: Khabib Nurmagamedov hospitalized, cancels Tony Ferguson title fight
Mar 04, 2017, 00:50
The status of Saturday's UFC 209 card at T-Mobile Arena, for which the interim lightweight showdown was the co-main event, is still unclear. According to the UFC statement, he was treated and discharged, but failed to appear at Friday's official early weigh-ins. The weigh-ins continued on without confirmation and Tony Ferguson, his opponent for an interim lightweight title clash, made weight while smiling.
The UFC 209 bout against American Ferguson was due to take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday, March 4th.
Reports coming out of Russian Federation and quoting the fighter's father said Nurmagomedov was in hospital and the fight was off.
The issue of weight cutting will certainly again be examined by the UFC following Nurmagomedov's illness.
While it was a very frustrating thing to happen so close to the fight, the fighter's health is the most important thing and the show must not go on if he is unable to compete. It's unclear if the victor of this matchup will also win the right to face the UFC's money-weight champion, but either way, this is unquestionably one of the best 155-pound fights ever to take place inside the Octagon.

The closest thing to a Boy Wonder appearance Nolan gave to fans was Joseph Gordon Levitt's John Blake in " The Dark Knight Rises". McKay is now in negotiations to direct the live-action film which is based on DC Comics, with Bill Dubuque writing the script.
The scrapping of the eagerly-anticipated fight hasn't angered Ferguson, who took to Twitter to wish Nurmagomedov a quick recovery.
Nurmagomedov vs. Ferguson called off for the third time.
As a result of the fallout, a fight on UFC 209's undercard will likely be elevated onto the pay-per-view card.
The victor of the fight appeared destined for a date with lightweight champion Conor McGregor. With the skills that both fighters have, the fight may just be as good as predicted.
McGregor has been continually linked with a potential mega-fight with Floyd Mayweather but no deal has been finalised. The main event is Tyron Woodley defending the UFC welterweight title against Stephen Thompson.
