Nurmagomedov says Johnson needs to work his way up


Last week UFC president Dana White said that Nate Diaz had turned down a fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov. Diaz hotly denied it, and then Michael Johnson offered to take the fight.

Even Ian McCall offered to take it, with tongue in cheek.

Ian McCall @Unclecreepymma
F--- it I'll fight @TeamKhabib since no one else wants to... but only i can dress like borat : )

Nurmagomedov turned down Uncle Creepy kindly. But Johnson was dismissed sharply.

Khabib Nurmagomedov @TeamKhabib
@FollowTheMenace @NateDiaz209 I don't want offend you, you are good fighter, but you lost 60% of your fights. I'll wait for you at the top

He was in love for a shot. I think how he's dominated his way through people was crazy considering where gray was when he beat him. I mean you could move him down but honestly a guy a couple a months ago had a title shot doesn't do out of the top ten if he's injured. Where do you have him. Mr picky

Who the hell has Grant beaten to be considered number 3? That's just laughable. He has one good win against Gray and hasn't fought in a year.

Depends on the wrestler. Bendo dominated him from bell to bell. And has way less credentials

Stylistically he matched up great with Lauzon. Great win. Tibau win was awesome. I'd love to see how Johnson handles Trujillo or Healy. I don't think he wins those fights. Healy is a bigger win than Lauzon and tibau. Ya I'm so illogical.

So kabob faced "some" noobs but deserves a top ten plus. But MJ laid to waste 2+ vets in a row, but kabob shouldnt fight him and deserves better? nice logic.

My point is that a lot of the top ten has stayed losing. They're out. Cleary. 1 . Pettis 2. Bendo3 grant 4 Melendez 5 Thompson 6 Nate 7.khabib8 Do anjos 9 green 10 cerrone or Healy That's my top ten. you're article to covent back with yours. I don't think I'm missing anyone. Miller is rising back up. Johnson, Varner, Barboza , and Lauzon are all coming off wins I believe. I could be wrong but I think it's a good list

Nate can't handle a decent wrestler.? Didn't he beat Maynard into Bolivia?

WTF? top 5-7??? Who has he beat to deserve that? a laundry list of unranked fighters? makes sense.
