Nurmagomedov can still win the belt if he wins the fight.
UFC 223: Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Al Iaquinta Staredown — MMA Fighting
Of course, following events on Thursday, when Conor McGregor and his crew crashed the Barclays Center, which led to at least two fighters being injured, three bouts being canceled, and McGregor being taken into police custody, the UFC fight card had already changed dramatically. Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg were injured and their bouts canceled, while Artem Lobov participated in the fracas alongside McGregor, leading White to cancel his bout. The UFC co-main event, which pits an immediate rematch between UFC strawweight champion Rose Namajunas and the woman she took the belt from, Joanna Jedrzejczyk, remained intact though.
The American had other ideas and finished Jedrzejczyk three minutes and three seconds into their bout.
