The rollercoaster ride that has been Khabib Nurmagomedov‘s scheduled Octagon return at the UFC On FOX 19 event appears to have made its’ final stop, as “The Eagle” now officially has a new opponent for his highly-anticipated Octagon return.
Nurmagomedov will return at the event next weekend but it won’t be against Tony Ferguson as originally planned, or even Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, as was rumored at one point.
When “The Eagle” makes his UFC return, he will be fighting Octagon newcomer Darrell Horcher in a 160-pound catch weight bout.
