UFC Insider Says Khabib’s Hospitalization Suspect, Believes He’s Hiding Something

“To me, that means he was hiding something where he didn’t want somebody in the UFC to know. That’s kind of the way I’m looking at it because there’s no other reason. You have medical people all over the place that are willing to help you.”

Ultimate Fighting Championship’s “UFC 209” suffered a major blow when it was revealed that Khabib Nurmagomedov had been forced out of his co-main event bout with Tony Ferguson. Nurmagomedov had went to a local hospital behind the backs of UFC doctors and instead of getting treated normally, he chose to go to an unapproved hospital. Not only did UFC President Dana White think this is what cost him the fight, but trainer Ray Longo told Jon Anik and Kenny Florian that he believes something was being hidden by Nurmagomedov and his camp.
