Over the weekend, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov - father and coach of Khabib Nurmagomedov told the Russian media that the date of transfer of the fight with Ferguson will be known in a few days:
"About the fight, the UFC told us next thing: they want to finish the tournament [UFC 209], and then for three days will give us an answer."
However, today, at March 5, Dana White expressed doubt about the Khabib's next fights in the UFC due to his problems with weight cutting:
“To be honest with you, Khabib fought [at UFC 205] in New York in November then here in this fight. Two back-to-back weight cuts like that. I don’t know if he can make the weight or if he needs to get a better plan (or) dietician. Something. I don’t know (what he should do). He got within six pounds and was in really rough shape. He’s going to have to take some time to recover from this weight cut, and then I don’t know what to do.”
