MMA ODDS AND ENDS FOR FRIDAY – NURMAGOMEDOV INJURED AGAIN

In the news of the year UFC lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov is hurt. Based on reports, Nurmagomedov has been made to pull out of his Ultimate Fighter 22 Finale co-headlining bout against Tony Ferguson due to a rib injury. There are discussions but nothing is set in stone as of now. That makes it the third right fight Nurmagomedov has not been able to see completion. It began with a projected UFC 178 battle against Donald Cerrone that”The Eagle” was pressured from following a knee injury. Once the bout was rescheduled for UFC 187, he reaggravated the exact same knee and he’s out of the December fight. Nurmagomedov has not fought since a unanimous decision victory over now-UFC Lightweight Champion Rafael Dos Anjos at April of 2014. Based on how long it takes for him to recuperate from this rib blow off, he could be on over a two-year break until he sees the Octagon . Ross Pearson vs. Francisco Trinaldo — UFC Fight Night 81 While one UFC bout was cancelled, another was declared as recent winners Ross Pearson and Francisco Trinaldo have been slated to throw down in Boston this upcoming January. Pearson was victorious in his last bout over Paul Felder via unanimous conclusion despite being a heavy underdog. Trinaldo did exactly the exact same thing, winning as a dog that is huge last August through round TKO Chad Laprise. Trinaldo has more momentum, although this is a fight that is fairly evenly matched. The Brazilian has won four straight bouts and is coming off the best victory of his profession while Pearson has been unable to string any wins together in his last eight fights. Even though Pearson has more name recognition, it wouldn’t shock me to see Trinaldo open as the little betting popular this time around because of his current string of success.
