Khabib Nurmagomedov releases statement after withdrawing from UFC 209 After pulling out of Saturday’s UFC 209 matchup with Tony Ferguson due to “weight management issues” Khabib Nurmagomedov posted an update via his Instagram account.. “Whoever you are or whatever you do, you’ll get only what God prescribed for you. AlhamduliLlah for everything God gifted me for my 28 years, I got much more than I asked. I know that many people was waiting for this fight and I fail them. Want to bring my apologies for all my fans, UFC and my opponent Tony My health is fine now, thanks God. These tough testing only makes me stronger. Thank everyone for the support.” After he was removed from the card, Ferguson was willing to fight Michael Johnson on a day’s notice at UFC 209 after Nurmagomedov pulled out. However, he mentioned Monday on The MMA Hour that the UFC was cutting his pay. It’s not known at this time if the UFC will try to re-book this fight for a third time.
