You gotta love it when fighters use social media to call each other out. And that's exactly what UFC lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov did early Monday morning.

I think khabib needs to get tested against some top guys, I'm not sure if he's ready for melendez, but I do think he can make a title run in the near future

I like it! Khabib is trying to get him a good name, and since his semi failed title shot Gilbert does only have a decision win over Diego Sanchez (who somehow stole the show with his heart/chin).

Oh what a scrap this is going to be. This is the ultimate test for Khabib. He deserves it.Since coming to the UFC he has picked off 5 guys in a row to remain undefeated. If you look at who he has beat, the rankings and who is available this fight does make some sense actually. This is going to be one hell of a fight. The only downside is that I like both fighters. I hate when that happens. I always hope for a draw in those situations. Sadly draws are almost nonexistent in MMA. Well, except for in Japan. They have lots of draws. Logic says Gilbert wins this fight but Khabib is badass. How badass is he? That is the question. I'm psyched. It's going to be a nasty war.

Good call out but Melendez is too much for Nurmagomedov to handle today.

it might be too much for Khabib right now, but with the title on hold this makes a bit of sense.

Great fight.

We'll find out whether Khabib deserves this fight or not on fight night.

He wins this fight and he probably is lined up for a title shot. Sounds like the right guy to call out to me, not to mention it would be a great fight to see.
