Khabib Nurmagomedov Ready To Take On Donald Cerrone

Khabib Nurmagomedov

Khabib Nurmagomedov has accepted the challenge of Donald Cerrone.

Even prior to defeating Jim Miller, Cerrone let it be known he would welcome a fight with the unbeaten Nurmagomedov, who has had trouble finding an opponent in the UFC’s lightweight division.

Now, with “Cowboy” riding a four-fight win streak – all of which have been finishes – he has heard back from Nurmagomedov.

“Let’s go,” the fourth-ranked Nurmagomedov wrote on Twitter after Cerrone’s second round knockout win over Miller. “I’m ready.”

Nurmagomedov (22-0) is coming off three straight decision wins over Rafael dos Anjos, Pat Healy and Abel Trujillo. He is 6-0 since signing with the UFC in 2012.

Later, Nurmagomedov added in a message sent to UFC president Dana White that “I want 5 rounds with Cerrone, I want to test myself.”
