UFC 209 News: Nurmagomedov v Ferguson called off.

Latest news from the UFC is that the title fight between Kahbib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson has been cancelled after the Dagestani fighter was taken to hospital with weight mangement issues.

A UFC statement said that the co-main event at UFC 209 in Las Vegas had been called off due to doctors orders.

Taken to hospital on Thursday, Nurmagomedov had apparently been struggling to make the required 155 lb weight. After being treated and discharged he still failed to make the Friday official early weigh ins.

Tony Ferguson said very disappointingly "I prepared hard for this fight it sucks man, I wished him good luck on twitter. They wanted to cut my pay I worked so hard for this man it sucks."

It is not yet confirmed if the fight is to be rescheduled for another date. 

We wish you a speedy recovery Kahbib.
