How many fights does an "Eagle" have to win inside the Octagon before he gets a title shot? One more, apparently. Khabib Nurmagomedov has racked up six straight wins inside the Octagon against some rather stiff competition since making his Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) debut back in 2012.

Cerrone is among the most popular lightweights on the UFC’s more
Nate Diaz took a shot at a certain cowboy for 'sucking too much UFC d***'.
He hardly uses social media as much as other fighters, but it's always interesting when Nate Diaz bitches rants on twitter. This time, the blunt of it is targeted at his former opponent in Donald Cerrone, who fights tomorrow against Jim Miller at UFC Fight Night: Atlantic City.
