Early on Monday morning, UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov announced that he is stuck in Russia due to the country’s new travel restrictions. The implication here, of course, is that his long-awaited fight with Tony Ferguson now seems nearly impossible.

Unsurprisingly, the MMA community has already had a lot to say about this fight potentially falling through for a fifth time.
