Nurmagomedov says Johnson needs to work his way up

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

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.

@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
