Khabib Nurmagomedov provides Tony Ferguson $200,000 to fight him So far in 2017, a couple of high-profile UFC fighters appear to take it in their own hands — and mouths — to try to generate some blockbuster matchups happen even when the organization has yet to approve them. Nothing has been formally planned out past March of this year, with new ownership remaining quiet about plans for title conflicts and other blockbuster bouts so far. But on Monday, No. 1 lightweight rival Khabib Nurmagomedov (24-0) took to Twitter to allow No. 2 rival Tony Ferguson (22-3) understand that he is ready to put up $200,000 of his own money to make a fight between them occur since the UFC hasn’t done it for them…Ferguson had demanded equal pay to carry on Nurmagomedov despite signing a new deal with the UFC that allegedly prevents that by making exactly the same. UFC president Dana White said the struggle would not occur for that reason even though the public is demanding it. The suggested bout is for the interim lightweight title with all present champion Conor McGregor (21-3) out of action for another 10 weeks to focus on the birth of his kid. Michael Bisping and Tyron Woodley agree to 180-pound catchweight bout? Yes, current UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping (30-7) and welterweight champ Tyron Woodley (16-3-1) also were spotted verbally agreeing to a superfight of sorts at a catchweight of 180 pounds backstage during UFC 207 past Friday at Las Vegas. Both fighters are coming off name defenses at the end of 2016 and right now don’t have new competitions. Bisping posted the video under on his Instagram accounts to show the world that he means business. There’s a current opening for a primary event at UFC Fight Night 108 at the O2 Arena in London on March 18th, together with Bisping hinting at that as a possible date. Stay tuned to MMAOddsBreaker.com for more information coming soon, including opening lines if those battles really occur…
