The Main event and most awaited match between Khabib And Tony are reported to be in Jeopardy as Khabib is reported to be rushed to the hospital just a couple of hours before his official weighing in for the fight against Tony Ferguson. Khabib is said to have rushed to the hospital during his brutal weight cut attempt for the 155lb interim title fight. The fight is set to happen on the fourth of March in Las Vegas.
The main event is one of the most awaited fights of 2017's UFC 209. The fight was hyped and people are going crazy about it. As the interim champion gets a shot to fight the current lightweight champion Conor McGregor, who has never defended his title in his career.
Both of the fighters are hungry to prove that they are the best lightweight champions and Khabib so far has the record of 24-0 wins and on the other hand Tony is a well-established fighter with vicious power and uses every part of his body to hurt the opponent.

People are craving for the vicious Sambo mixed kickboxing skills against jaw-dropping power and exceptional standup fighting skill. But the news outed by ESPN can totally disappoint fans if Khabib can't recover in a short period of time.
Reached out to Nurmagomedov's manager just now. He declined to comment on this report. https://t.co/nR8lcdZqWa— Brett Okamoto (@bokamotoESPN) March 3, 2017
Sorry fans the fight may be canceled out if Khabib fails to recover totally because the unarmed combat game like MMA can be really dangerous if the player is physically fit in every aspect. There are many silent questions that come along with this; Even if Khabib recovers from and makes his way into the octagon, can he perform despite his medical condition? Will the MMA world allow him to combat the main event?
Khabib is one hell of a fighter but this accident can be very costly to the Eagle as well. Tony really worked his way up to the top and can capitalize on Khabib's medical condition. But lately at the weighing in Tony clearly stated that he fills kind of s***t after the match has been canceled.
Though the internet is going crazy for weeks we hope The eagle Nurmagomedov is alright and proves his skills to all UFC fans as nothing has been revealed by his manager so far.

UFC has already sold tickets and has also sold the pay per views. And what if the most hyped fight is removed from the card? UFC's president Dana White has revealed nothing about this issue but looks like the most awaited fight for the interim belt is in danger after Khabib is hospitalized.
UFC lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov was transported to Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center Thursday evening due to weight management medical issues. He was treated and has been discharged, UFC officials confirmed.
The scheduled interim lightweight championship bout between Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson at UFC 209 has been cancelled on the doctor’s recommendation.
This is sad but the fight is reported to be canceled out. The tabloid sites and social media is going crazy about it and so far it looks like Khabib, has failed his attempt to cut weight and in the process of weight loss, he has lost his shot to the title as well.
