Covid-19: Khabib will not be defending his title in UFC

Apr 02, 2020 14:18 IST

The much anticipated Khabib Nurmagomedov's UFC bout against Tony Ferguson will now not take place on April 18 and has been postponed for the fifth time. While rebuking people who expected him to fight during these difficult times, Nurmagomedov informed through his Instagram that he will not be defending his lightweight belt at UFC 249 in New York since he is stuck in Russia due to travel restrictions imposed by the country to control the spread of the pandemic. The previously planned bouts between the two were postponed because of injuries and health issues.
