Khabib Nurmagomedov next fight: When will UFC star return?

Nurmagomedov will headline UFC 249 by taking on Tony Ferguson.

The pair have been scheduled to face off several times over the years but a fight has never come to fruition.

But now, they will finally meet on April 18 at a UFC main event at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

There have been rumours that Nurmagomedov’s next fight could be his last.

The 31-year-old Russian said: “I don’t want to think about the future, I still have to live to April, I still have to fight, I need to win. So, I don’t like to look too far ahead.

“Now we have an opponent, Tony Ferguson, a very serious opponent. And I think it’s necessary to have this fight then we’ll sit down and think about what’s next.

“We’ll consider whether there’s any point in fighting any more. There will always be a reason to fight, money.

“But will we need it? We’ll think about it. I feel good now. I’m 31 and it’s a very good age to fight, and for sport. I’m far from retirement age, but it’s around the corner.”
