- Khabib Nurmagomedov recently spoke about his UFC 165 fight with Pat Healy. Here are the highlights…
On Fighting Pat Healy: "I've got a lot of surprises for this guy. I've got my own plan, and I'm pretty good at breaking plans as well and breaking guys in the cage."
On His Preparation For The Fight: "I've been working a lot with Josh Thomson, Jon Fitch and Jake Shields avoiding those types of situations," Nurmagomedov said. "I've been working on my defense against the takedowns and working against the cage in the clinch, so I'm ready for that situation."
