Johnson volunteers for Nurmagomedov fight

 

Khabib Nurmagomedov is the fighter everyone is talking about this weekend, and he hasn't said or done anything. Yesterday someone tweeted to Dana White that they would like to see Khabib fight Nate Diaz. White responded that they turned down the fight, which prompted Diaz himself to respond it wasn't true.

Diaz's management claims they were offered the fight, but couldn't come to terms on the financials.

One UFC lightweight who is however ready to take the fight is Michael Johnson who is riding an impressive two fight streak over two of the UFC's veteran lightweights:

Well @danawhite if @NateDiaz209 don't wanna scrap with me I think the people want me & @TeamKhabib @ufc

MJ vs. Varner sounds better. Bendo/Thomson loser against khabib.

Healy was ranked #10 and he would have been ranked much higher if his win over Miller wasn't overturned.

Compare the fights. Cerrone has been fighting the top guys at 155. Kabobs best win is fucking unranked Tibau and that fight was close. Actually all his wins are over unranked guys.

micheal johnson doesn't have anything in his tool box except sticking and moving. He's the LW bisping. bisping has a bunch of tko's as well.khabib is 10x more vicious with wrestling that is just better than most of the LW division. You can see Khabib beat anyone on a good night.i can't even picture Mj beating anyone in the top 10, but maybe he follows in bispings footsteps and he just hangs around for awhilekhabib is a quick and violent in his movings, mj could paint himself white and people would just nod day head. no wows. no shock n awe. perfection.

What the fuck are you two smoking? MJ is 6-4 in the UFC and Castillo, Lauzon, and Tibau are all bigger wins than Ferguson. Jimmy Rustler, do you even watch MMA or are you a converted pro wrasslin' fan?

You are trying to argue intelligently with a kid, most  likely a hold over from the Lesner/WWE groups we are stick with. That kind don't care about stats or whatever.

Why is it ridiculous? Cerrone is 2-2 in his last 4 and 4-3 in his last 7. I am a big fan of cowboy but right now Khabib is deserving of his ranking. He is 5-0 in the UFC and 21-0 overall.

Not to counter you, but would you agree that most combat Sambo fighters have not been nearly as successful as Fedor? I think MJ could be a step up in competition.
