Umar Nurmagomedov challenges former UFC champion

UFC bantamweight number 11, Umar Nurmagomedov, wants to see former division champ Dominic Cruz, ranked number seven, as his next opponent.

“No one wants to fight Umar. He needs to organize a fight against this legend, ”wrote the Russian manager, Ali Abdelaziz, on the social network, posting an impromptu poster for the fight.

“Come on, Dominick Cruz! I respect you, please give me the opportunity – it will be a great fight! ”, Nurmagomedov supported his manager.

In January of this year, the undefeated 27-year-old Russian won his fourth victory in the UFC, knocking out the Brazilian Raoni Barcelos in the first round, and the 37-year-old Dominick Cruz last entered the octagon in August last year, losing by knockout in the fourth round to Marlon Vera.
