Undefeated lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov is looking to get a title shot with a win over short-notice opponent Darrell Horcher who makes his UFC debut against Nurmagomedov this Saturday at UFC on FOX 19. Despite Horcher being a newcomer to the UFC, Nurmagomedov says that he wants a title shot if he wins because he didn’t choose the opponent.
“UFC needs somebody different,” Nurmagomedov said to the media on Thursday. “Somebody who is new, new level, new generation. I think and I hope 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.
