According to his manager...
MMA Fighting reports that according to Khabib Nurmagomedov's manager Sam Kardan, the lightweight wants a fight with the winner of UFC Fight Night 45's Donald Cerrone vs Jim Miller bout on July 16. Nurmagomedov is currently 22-0, with a 6-0 record in the UFC since he debuted in early 2012. His most recent fight was a unanimous decision win over Rafael dos Anjos.
He was set to fight Cerrone at the event but had to turn it down due to conflicts with the Muslim holiday Ramadan. Ramadan requires those who practice Muslim to fast from sunrise to sunset for a month, which would affect Nurmagomedov's nutrition and training.
