Dana White Confirms Nurmagomedov Blew Knee 20 Minutes After Signing Cerrone Deal
Donald Cerrone and Khabib Nurmagomedov nearly got the scrap they’ve been asking for against each other.
According to UFC President Dana White, the fight was a done deal for a September UFC event, and 20 minutes after signing, Khabib pulled out.
Here’s Dana’s recount:
“That fight was done. Joe Silva sent the email out, and 20 minutes later, (Nurmagomedov) went into the gym and blew his knee out. Twenty minutes. So that fight’s off.”
