Khabib Nurmagomedov provides Tony Ferguson $200,000 to combat him So far in 2017, a few high-profile UFC fighters seem to take it into their own hands — and mouths — to try to make some blockbuster matchups happen even when the organization has yet to approve them. Nothing has been officially planned out past March of the past year, with new possession remaining quiet about plans for title fights and other blockbuster bouts so far. But on Monday, No. 1 lightweight rival Khabib Nurmagomedov (24-0) took to Twitter to let No. 2 contender Tony Ferguson (22-3) know that he is ready to put up $200,000 of his own money to make a fight between them occur since the UFC hasn’t done it to them…Ferguson had demanded equal pay to carry on Nurmagomedov despite signing a new deal with the UFC that allegedly prevents that by making the same. UFC president Dana White said the struggle would not happen for that reason though the public is demanding it. The proposed bout would be for the interim lightweight title with all current champion Conor McGregor (21-3) from action for the next 10 weeks to focus on the birth of his child. Tyron Woodley and michael Bisping agree to 180-pound catchweight bout? Yes, current UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping (30-7) and welterweight champ Tyron Woodley (16-3-1) were seen verbally agreeing to some superfight of sorts at a catchweight of 180 pounds backstage during UFC 207 past Friday in Las Vegas. Both fighters are coming off name defenses at the end of 2016 and right now don’t have new opponents. Bisping posted the movie below on his Instagram account to show the world that he means business. There’s a current opening for a main event at UFC Fight Night 108 at the O2 Arena in London on March 18th, with Bisping hinting at that as a possible date. Stay tuned to for more info coming soon, such as opening lines if those fights really happen… Read more:
