Khabib Nurmagomedov might not be getting a title shot, but he could be given a nice consolation prize.

UFC president Dana White said Tuesday on ESPN's SportsCenter that he is working on a fight between Nurmagomedov and fellow lightweight contender Michael Johnson for UFC 205 on Nov. 12 in New York. The headliner for that event, of course, will be Eddie Alvarez defending his lightweight title against Conor McGregor, which White announced Monday night.

"Khabib was also supposed to get a title fight at 155 pounds," White said. "Khabib called and says, ‘Alright, I get it. Conor is getting this fight? Put me on New York, too.' So, he wants to fight Michael Johnson."
