It appears Khabib Nurmagomedov is starting to understand how these fighter challenges go.

After pushing for a potential bout with either Gilbert Melendez or Nate Diaz, Nurmagomedov turned down a challenge from Michael Johnson.


Johnson didn’t take to kindly to the remark by the unbeaten Russian, posting, So I get (why) Nate Diaz won’t fight me…get 2 him later but as 4 (Nurmagomedov) u ain’t fought nobody 2 say I need 2 work up to u…joke.

“I understand u but this isn’t a numbers game and ur paying (attention) 2 the wrong things saying that its the fight game (numbers) don’t mean (expletive).”
