The talk of the weekend was the situation of Khabib Nurmagomedov and his next potential fight. Nate Diaz was offered the fight, Dana White claimed he refused it, his manager clarified, Michael Johnson offered to take the fight, and more.

“We could be looking at a title fight,” Mike Kogan told MMAjunkie. “I think it’s a smart business decision to sit around for a little bit.”
Kogan said injuries have ravaged the UFC lightweight division, and Diaz (17-9 MMA, 12-7 UFC) stands to capitalize when champ Anthony Pettis (17-2 MMA, 4-1 UFC) heals from a recent knee surgery.
