Details Emerge On Khabib Nurmagomedov’s UFC 209 Health Crisis

Last night’s UFC 209 event was struck with major disappointment, as the promotion’s co-main event was unexpectedly cancelled.

Undefeated lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov was initially set to face Tony Ferguson for the interim lightweight belt in the co-main event. Unfortunately, “The Eagle” was forced to miss weigh-ins, as he was rushed to the hospital for weight management issues.

MMA reporter Karim Zidan has provided an update to the health of Nurmagomedov, as it has been unsure what exactly went wrong before weigh-ins.

Zidan said, “Update on Khabib: spoke to his team, who claim he was hospitalized cause of ‘sharp pain in his liver.’ Had 5.5 lbs to go in his cut.”
