Khabib Nurmagomedov is the fighter everyone is talking about this weekend, and he hasn’t said or done anything.

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:
