as mentioned in BROOKLYN, N.Y. – Khabib Nurmagomedov thinks the UFC should “humble” Conor McGregor for wanting to box Floyd Mayweather.
UFC President Dana White has said Dagestan native Nurmagomedov (24-0 MMA, 8-0 UFC) could be McGregor’s first title defense at lightweight.
Nurmagomedov said he “doesn’t give a (expletive)” about McGregor at the moment and is focused on a showdown with Tony Ferguson (22-3 MMA, 12-1 UFC) next month at UFC 209.
He and his coach (John Kavanagh).”Nurmagomedov wishes he could fight McGregor for a UFC title in his native Russia, but said the promotion’s current broadcast deal nixes that possibility.
But he also recently hinted at a legal battle with McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) should he try to make the Mayweather fight without the UFC.

REUTERS/Philip O’ConnorSTOCKHOLM The Ultimate Fighting Championship’s 18-month-old anti-doping program may be making waves but its designer Jeff Novitzky, who came to prominence chasing high-profile drug cheats like cyclist Lance Armstrong and sprinter Marion Jones, says it is definitely helping clean up the sport.
Novitzky says it is practically impossible to eliminate doping completely but strong sanctions imposed on high-profile athletes ensure that athletes now think twice before cheating.
