SURREY, British Columbia –  Khabib Nurmagomedov is confused by the UFC’s current bookings in the lightweight division. Nurmagomedov (29-0 MMA, 13-0 UFC), a former UFC lightweight champion, has seen his good friend and protege Islam Makhachev takes the reigns in the weight class following his retirement in October 2020 . Makhachev (25-1 MMA, 14-1 UFC) has already reeled off two title defenses – both against Alexander Volkanovski – and has seemingly been eagerly awaiting his next foe. Many people, including Nurmagomedov, thought UFC would put together Makhachev vs. Justin Gaethje for the first quarter of this year.
