“Cowboy,” Nurmagomedov Mix It Up

Khabib Nurmagomedov

Donald Cerrone and Khabib Nurmagomedov have several more months to interact via social media ahead of their planned fight later this year at UFC 187.

The two lightweights are notorious for using Twitter, so you can expect more and more “interactions” such as the one they recently shared to follow.

Cerrone (27-6) has picked up seven straight wins since a 2013 loss to current title-contender Rafael dos Anjos. That includes wins over Benson Henderson and Myles Jury this year after going 4-0 in 2014.

Nurmagomedov (22-0) is returning from a knee injury that scrapped a planned fight with “Cowboy.” He’s topped dos Anjos, Pat Healy, Abel Trujillo, Gleison Tibau and Kamal Shalorus since joining the promotion.
