Khabib and Holloway Caught Cutting Weight Together Days Ahead of Title Fight

Following the news that UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway and undefeated UFC lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov will be throwing down for the lightweight title, a video of the two fighters cutting weight together has made its way onto the internet.

Nurmagomedov was initially set to face off against UFC interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson in the main event of UFC 223. However, Ferguson has since suffered an injury.

On just six days notice, Holloway stepped up to fill the empty position. Now the fighter will be moving up in weight to face Nurmagomedov for the UFC lightweight belt.

Now a video of Nurmagomedov and Holloway each running on treadmills within the same gym has made its way to the internet. Within the video above, the two fighters can be seen working out together just days ahead of the octagon war.
