After defeating Jim Miller on Wednesday nigh at UFC Fight Night 45, Donald Cerrone called out Khabib Nurmagomedov. The fight was signed, sealed and delivered for UFC 178 on September 27. About 20 minutes later, the fight was cancelled.
In Dublin, Ireland for Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 46, UFC president Dana White announced that the fight was off due to Nurmegomedov blowing out his knee in the gym.
“That was made, it’s done, 20 minutes later (Khabib) went into the gym and blew his knee out,” White said. “20 f**king minutes later.”
No word on how bad Nurmagomedov hurt his knee, but was bad enough to cancel the fight. As of right now, Cerrone is off the card, but could still fight at UFC 178.
