    Gilbert Melendez vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov Scrapped From UFC 170, Because Dana White Said So

    Keeping with the UFC’s recently instituted tradition of announcing a fight and immediately shuffling it to another card or cancelling it outright, it appears that the exciting matchup between top lightweight contenders Gilbert Melendez and Khabib Nurmagomedov has been scrapped from UFC 170. Dana White elaborated on the cancellation in an interview with FOX Sports yesterday:

    Not happening.

    OK, so maybe “elaborate” wasn’t the best word to use there.

    Melendez vs,. Nurmagomedov was made official in the wake of UFC 168 last weekend, but details are still scarce as to why the fight has suddenly been cancelled. Official CP theory: The bears finally had their revenge on the Nurmagomedov family. Both “The Nurm” and Melendez are coming off big wins, over Pat Healy and Diego Sanchez at UFC 165 and 166, respectively, so the fight made perfect sense from a matchmaking standpoint. Be that as it may, the UFC is currently seeking a replacement opponent for the Russian.

    Who would you like to see Nurmagomedov fight next, Nation? Michael Johnson? Edson Barboza? Little Moe with the gimpy leg?
