The UFC is headed to Tampa this weekend with Glover Teixeira vs. Rashad Evans set to headline the main event. However, fans are also excited to see the return of Khabib Nurmagomedov in a 160-pound catchweight fight against UFC newcomer Darrell Horcher. “The Eagle” was originally set to face Tony Ferguson, but Ferguson pulled out of the fight due to an injury.
Nurmagomedov is undefeated at 22-0 but has not fought since April 19, 2014 when he defeated the-now champion Rafael Dos Anjos. Some speculate that Nurmagomedov could receive a title shot if he defeats Horcher on Saturday. The UFC recently released a preview showing the return of Khabib Nurmagomedov. Watch below!
