Khabib Nurmagomedov out of UFC 187

Khabib Nurmagomedov, who was slated to take on Donald Cerrone in a few weeks at UFC 187 is the latest to fall victim to the injury bug. Canadian John Makdessi will replace Khabib in the main card scrap. A win for Cerrone would make it eight in a row, it is unclear whether he’ll get the next shot at the 155-lb. championship if he advances past his new opponent. The injury, a torn meniscus will keep Khabib sidelined for 4-6 months.
