Khabib Nurmagomedov wants a piece of the “Cowboy.”
Not long after Donald Cerrone took out Jim Miller with a second-round head kick in the UFC Fight Night “Cerrone vs. Miller” main event on Wednesday at the Revel Casino in Atlantic City, N.J., Nurmagomedov took to Twitter to target the Jackson-Wink MMA standout. Cerrone has made clear his desire to stay as active as possible, and Nurmagomedov seems willing to oblige him.
The Dagestani wunderkind has rattled off 22 straight victories to start his career. Nurmagomedov last appeared at UFC on Fox 11 in April, when he cruised to a unanimous decision over Rafael dos Anjos at the Amway Center in Orlando, Fla. The 25-year-old is a two-time combat sambo world champion.
