"There are difficult negotiations with the UFC"


Russian mixed-style fighter Habib Nurmagomedov commented on his possible fight with Dustin Porier, who won the interim champion's lightweight title on April 13 at UFC 236.

Porier won the belt … temporary. I have a real one. But he has a new belt (the UFC has cast a belt in a new design). The only thing that draws me into this fight is that I'm going to get a new belt. As rival, Dustin Porier is very good, won against Eddie Alvarez, Justin Gaitji, Max Holloway.

"You never know what the UFC will do, but they say we'll fight with Dustin Pore. Now difficult negotiations are underway, it's always difficult to negotiate with the UFC, but I hope they will end in September, and I'll be in a fight with him, "Nurmagomedov said.

Recall, Porier defeated compatriot Max Holloway in a battle for the UFC Interim Champion belt.

Thus, the American became the official candidate for the fight with Nurmagomedov. The fight will take place on September 7.
