Khabib Nurmagomedov Knee Surgery Was A Success

Undefeated UFC lightweight contender, Khabib Nurmagomedov had surgery this week on his knee that was injured during practice, an injury that forced him out of his UFC 187 clash with Donald Cerrone later this month, something he hopes to return from during the month of October. Today we found out the surgery was a success.

AKA head trainer, Javier Mendez revealed to sources that the “The Eagle” re-injuring his knee was a “freak accident.” Heres what he had to say:

“He was sparring and no contact was actually made. He took a step back and as he stepped back, his knee went out on him. It was the same knee, and the thing is, when he came to training he was about 90% (recovered) so we were trying to work around the surgery. It just didn’t hold.”
