First-ever UFC show in Russian Federation booked for September in Moscow The first-ever UFC show in Russian Federation is set to happen as early as September, as the event has already been scheduled in one of the biggest arenas in Moscow, RT Sport has learned from the venue.

Dagestan native Nurmagomedov put himself back in the lightweight title picture last month in the co-main event of UFC 219. The biggest question remaining is what is next for Nurmagomedov?

However, the UFC are keen to book McGregor against interim champion Tony Ferguson, if and when the Irishman eventually returns to the Octagon.

"Most likely, this event is going to be connected with us".

According to UFC president Dana White, his next fight will be a lightweight title unification bout with Ferguson.

Criticising the PDP, opposition National Conference has said that what Mir has said shows that PDP is a party of contradictions. Kashmir issue is a political issue. "What will we get if the people keep getting killed with bullets and pellets", he asked.

"If Conor and Ferguson fight among themselves, give us Alvarez".

It remains to be seen if the UFC brass would really go through with that given that McGregor is by far and away their biggest, most powerful star, but one person who believes they will is color commentator Joe Rogan. Although the timetable would lay out perfectly if Nurmagomedov could get past the ever-dangerous Tony Ferguson.

Signs point to McGregor sitting out longer than March, to which White has sent a warning.

"Although I can't exclude the possibility they will make us wait for Ferguson until September, and there won't be an April fight", Nurmagomedov said. Nobody is interested in fighting for a fake belt. "We have many good fighters who can fill the arena".
