Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White is charged with running the world’s largest mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion, so as you might expect, he’s probably a hard man to pin down.
That’s why undefeated lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov is going to take any opportunity he can get to convince the “Sin City” fight boss that “The Eagle” is ready to fly into a 155-pound title fight.
Even between rounds.
That’s what happened when the Dagestani was putting a beatdown on fellow contender Edson Barboza in the UFC 219 pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event, which took place last Saturday night (Dec. 30, 2017) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Watch the video highlights here.
This isn’t the first time Nurmagomedov shouted to White during a bout. At UFC 205 back in late 2016, “The Eagle” told White to stop sending him fake contracts (like this one) to help negotiate with other combatants.

Nurmagomedov is expected to fight Tony Ferguson for the interim title at some point this spring, with the winner moving on to face Conor McGregor later this summer. I am personally rooting for “The Eagle,” just because I want to hear what he shouts during a “Notorious” showdown.
