Nurmagomedov: “I am the next lightweight contender.”

He’s not a fan of anybody getting a title shot ahead of him — especially not Cerrone or Alvarez.

“Nate Diaz smashed him, Rafael dos Anjos smashed him, Benson Henderson, Anthony Pettis knocked him out, I don’t know why no one says ‘Khabib is the No. 1 contender’? 6-0 in the UFC, 22-0,” Nurmagomedov told FOX Sports on Thursday.

“You tell me that Anthony Pettis or Gilbert Melendez is ready to go by April or May and I’ll be ready to go. Please give me my title shot, I deserve it. I smashed everybody. Now, I’m ready and I deserve my title shot,” Nurmagomedov said.

“Cowboy can shut up, you’re not the lightweight contender. I am the next lightweight contender. You’ve lost many times in the UFC. I am undefeated in the UFC. If the UFC gives me the title shot you will have a new undefeated and undisputed lightweight champion. 23-0.”
