UFC 209

We didn’t hear anything directly from Khabib Nurmagomedov this past weekend, following his unfortunate withdrawal from UFC 209, but now the lightweight contender has posted a statement.

On Friday, the MMA world was rocked by the news that Nurmagomedov was not going to fight Tony Ferguson for the interim lightweight title as scheduled. “The Eagle” ran into medical issues while trying to make 155 pounds, and as a result, Nurmagomedov was not cleared to fight.

Not too long ago, Nurmagomedov posted these comments below. Although he doesn’t mention a timeline for his return, thankfully he’s reporting that he’s doing well.

Чтобы ты не делал или кем бы ты не был, ты получишь то, что Всевышний предписал тебе. Альхамдулиллах за все что мне Всевышний дал за эти 28 лет, я даже получил то, что и не просил Его. Я знаю много людей ждали этот бой и я всех подвёл. На счёт сорванного боя хочу извинится перед моими болельщиками, UFC и перед моим соперником. С моим здоровьем все хорошо Альхамдулиллах, бывало и хуже, но каждый раз эти испытания меня делали только сильнее. Спасибо Всем за поддержку. Whoever you are or whatever you do, you'll get only what God prescribed for you. AlhamduliLlah for everything God gifted me for my 28 years, I got much more than I asked. I know that many people was waiting for this fight and I fail them. Want to bring my apologies for all my fans, UFC and my opponent Tony. My health is fine now, thanks God. These tough testing only makes me stronger. Thank everyone for the support. #Alhamdulillah
