It has been noted quite a bit in the past by UFC President Dana White, among others, that Khabib Nurmagomedov is a man that no one in the sport seems to be chomping at the bit to fight inside the Octagon.
Following Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone’s impressive knockout victory over the tough Jim Miller at Wednesday’s UFC Fight Night 45 event in Atlantic City, as well as Cerrone saying after the fight that he is willing to fight anyone, Nurmagomedov took to Twitter to try and secure the bout.
Nurmagomedov tweeted the following:

Nurmagomedov (22-0) last fought in April of 2014, pulling off a decision victory over the highly regarded Rafael dos Anjos. He has gone 6-0 thus far since joining the UFC ranks.
