Then FOX Sports writer, world observer, and father of America's undisputed No. 1 toddler Mike Chiappetta is reported that Khabib Nurmagomedov will fight Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone at UFC 178 on Sept. 27, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada, live on pay per view.

Then just 20 minutes after the fight became public, Kevin Iole reports UFC president Dana White says that Khabib blew his knee out and the fight is off UFC 178 card.

“That fight was done,” said White. “Joe Silva sent the email out, and 20 minutes later, he went into the gym and blew his knee out. Twenty minutes.”
