Khabib Nurmagomedov is currently stuck in Russia after president Vladimir Putin instituted lockdowns due to coronavirus.
As a result, “The Eagle” can not fly out of his country in order to fight Tony Ferguson at UFC 249, which is still on tap to go down on April 18.
The location, however, has not been determined.
Soon after hearing the news, John Kavanagh hinted that Conor McGregor could step in to fight Ferguson.
While Conor hasn’t been able to hit the gym regularly to train due to COVID-19, he has been staying sharp in his house.
Should a fight between Ferguson and McGregor materialize, it could possibly be for the interim lightweight title, with the winner facing Khabib later in 2020.
Do you like the idea of Conor stepping to fight Ferguson on such short notice?
