Khabib Nurmagomedov has been forced out of his bout with Tony Ferguson due to suffering an rib injury. Khabib hasn’t fought since his last win over current Lightweight Champion Rafael Dos Anjos back in April 2014 due to serious knee injuries. He was due to make his return with a fight against Tony Ferguson at The TUF 22 Finale in Las Vegas, Dec 11th.
Khabib took to instagram to address his fans and said, “I want to apologize to my fans. I broke my rib, and again I am out of the fight. I really wanted to come back, I’m not sure if i will ever come back. Thanks to my fans and my sponsors. Praise to Allah.”
