Khabib Nurmagomedov said his next fight will be in Brooklyn in April 2020. Where he is expected to face Tony Ferguson.
“Even if they apologize or not, we will find a new place for the fight. Surely it will be in Brooklyn, I’m still not sure of the date. We are chatting with UFC. But it seems to happen in early April,” said Khabib.

Nurmagomedov has not had a good relationship with Las Vegas since he was suspended after the UFC 229 campaign battle. He said he would not return to that city again until the commission apologizes.
Coincidentally, Nurmagomedov and Ferguson would face each other at UFC 223 last year, but, Tony injured his knee, and the Russian faced Al Iaquinta, who won by the unanimous decision to be crowned light champion.
Currently, UFC has to confirm if they will go to Brooklyn in April and if Khabib Nurmagomedov will be on that card.
