UFC 209 fight card: Khabib Nurmagomedov hospitalized, title fight canceled

The victor of the bout was likely to be among the top contenders for the next big-money fight with Conor McGregor, who won the regular UFC lightweight title last November with a victory over Eddie Alvarez. It's unclear as to whether or not the fight with Ferguson will be cancelled, as the UFC have yet to make an official statement on the matter.

The interim lightweight championship fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson is the co-main event, and neither bout features a heavy favorite.

Tony Ferguson will attempt to confirm his place as heir to the lightweight throne at UFC 209 and the Mexican already has his sights on the 155lbs king.

Reports coming out of Russian Federation and quoting the fighter's father said Nurmagomedov was in hospital and the fight was off.

As more states decriminalize the use of pot, he says he is anxious teens won't take the long-term consequences seriously. The drug has been legalized (PDF) for recreational use in eight states and for medical use in 28 states.

"I no understand this fight you know-UFC give him this fight like seven, six weeks before the fight", Nurmagomedov said. It airs on PPV after preliminary bouts on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.

"I have to fight Tony Ferguson before I get this fight".

McGregor won't necessarily face the lightweight interim champion in his next fight.

This is a devastating blow for Nurmagomedov, who many believe is destined to be the UFC lightweight champion.

This is the third time Nurmagomedov and Ferguson were supposed to fight.

Now, there's a huge wrench thrown into the equation for both fighters, adding further uncertainty to who is next in line for McGregor.

UFC 209 is Saturday in Las Vegas, headlined by Tyron Woodley vs. Stephen Thompson for Woodley's welterweight title in a rematch of their UFC 205 bout in 2016.

After a quiet beginning to the new year for the UFC, we are finally closing in on the promotion's first marquee pay-per-view of 2017.
