While Khabib Nurmagomedov has been away from the UFC for two years due to several injuries. With that being said, Nurmagomedov holds a win over current UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos, and is 6-0 in the UFC.
Ahead of his UFC on FOX 19 scrap against UFC newcomer Darrell Horcher, Nurmagomedov made his case for a title shot to media members:
BloodyElbow has the quotes:
“I beat your current lightweight champion,” Khabib told the assembled media. “I hope these guys give me a title shot. I have been undefeated all my life.”
“Eddie Alvarez lose a lot of times, Cowboy lose, Tony Ferguson lose,” he continued. “UFC needs somebody different, somebody new, on a new level, new generation. I hope the UFC gives me a title shot after this, because a lot of people agree with me. A lot of fans agree with me.”
“I am undefeated. All these bums lose a lot of times. Nate Diaz lose 10 times. McGregor lose. Ferguson, Cowboy, RDA, everybody lose. I am undefeated and UFC has to give me this title shot.”
Does Nurmagomedov have a point? Should he get a title shot with a win over Darrell Horcher?
