Dana White stated yesterday that UFC Lightweights are not exactly lining up to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov. Who could blame them? Nurmagomedov is 21-0, including five straight dominant victories inside the Octagon.

Jamie isn't high enough in the rankings for him, he should fight Abel Trujillo.

I don't get it? Everybody wants a chance to KO Bisping while Khabib is one bad mothashutyomouth.

I'd rather see Michael Johnson fight him since Mike called him out and is coming off two solid wins.

I was thinking on the same line as jae.

I wouldn't mind Khabib/Johnson but I have the Khabib/Melendez match up stuck in my head. I also have the Nate Diaz/Johnson fight stuck in my head.

I think Diaz/Johnson would make for a nice scrap and even better weigh in stare down.

I'd also prefer they hold off for a few events and do Melendez vs. Nurmagomedov as originally planned.

As for Johnson, I'd like to see him take on Jim Miller with both coming off of UFC 168 wins and both being in the 10-15 range among LW's.

Varner is fighting against Abel, he just took the fight a week or two ago. WTF is this of him wanting to fight Khabib now?

If I was Varner I'd want anyone but Abel. That dude is fucking scary.

What's with everyone and their moms calling this guy out.
Didn't Dos Anjos already agree to fighting him?

This was pretty funny. RDA thought that he was suppose to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov but when he really signed up to fight Rustam Khabilov.
