Late Thursday night it was revealed that Khabib Nurmagomedov had injured his rib and would no longer be able to fight Tony Ferguson at the TUF 22 finale on December 11th.
Fighters took to Twitter to react to the news of Nurmagomedov’s injury, as well as the news of him potentially stepping away from the sport.
