Khabib: "The lightweight division in the UFC must live, Dustin Poirier deserves to become a champion”
UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov already met a few weeks ago with Dane White, the company's president, on "Fight Island". Although White led fans to believe that "The Eagle" leaves the opportunity to return, in fact, Khabib said the opposite.

Nurmagomedov now says he plans to meet with White again in the coming weeks, but it looks like he will stand by his departure, making it clear that the 155-pound weight class should exist. He stated this in a recent interview with Match TV.

In addition, the undefeated champion (29-0, 13-0 UFC) says that if anyone deserves to lead the division as a champion in his absence, it is Dustin Poirier, who recently won a stunning knockout victory over Khabib's most principled opponent, Conor McGregor, at UFC 257.
Recent rumors suggest that the organizers are considering organizing a trilogy fight between Poirier and McGregor in May this year. Of course, if the upcoming meeting of White and Khabib leads to the fact that the organizers will release the belt, "The Diamond" will be able to fight with a more worthy contender much earlier.
In addition, there is someone to choose from, for example, Charles Oliveira, who is actively working to win a series of eight fights, which include such big events as defeating Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee. There's also Michael Chandler, who rose to prominence in the 155-foot weight class thanks to a dazzling Octagon debut and an outstanding knockout over Dan Hooker at UFC 257.

In any case, it looks like there will be a new leader in the division in 2021, unless White somehow miraculously persuades Nurmagomedov to return.

Askar Askarov was removed from the UFC program due to his health problems, which did not allow him to attend the scheduled premiere of UFC Vegas 18
In the near future, Askar Askarov will not participate in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fights. Askar's initial appearance in the UFC Vegas 18 octagon for the fight against Cody Stamann in Las Vegas, Nevada, was scheduled for last Saturday (February 6, 2021), but the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) did not allow Askar to fight for health reasons.

According to Aaron Bronsteter, a reporter for TSN, to date, the organization has completely terminated the contract with Askar.
Over the past 5 years, Askar has participated in fights with a 10-1 record in mixed martial arts (MMA), 7 wins of which were OTC (refusal to continue the fight), while being a member of several organizations around the world.

While the exact health issues that led to his disqualification are unknown, we hope that in the future Askar will recover and be able to fight again and possibly renew his contract with the UFC.

Dustin Poirier, Charles Oliveira join the list of top fighters in addition to Nathan Diaz: "I'm not going to play the good guy"
Longtime UFC lightweight contender Nate Diaz, who also competes in the welterweight division, plans to return to the competition in April or May, where he hopes to give a thrashing in honor of his return.Just for this?

The plan is to remove one (or both) of the top contenders in their division, such as Charles Oliveira, who is ranked third in the UFC lightweight rankings, and Dustin Poirier, who is the leader. Just don't think that Diaz (20-12) will give his victories to Dustin Poirier (The Diamond), in the event that they meet in a duel later this year.
In a battle that “doesn't make sense” to the division.

” I like winners, " Diaz told ESPN. “I want to fight the fighters who win. I like the fight with Oliveira or Dustin Poirier. I'm not going to play the good guy like Conor McGregor did with him. Conor just let him beat him up. He's going to have a real fight with me. It will be a challenge for him, it is unlikely that he will be able to sleep."
Poirier (27-6, 1 NC) was scheduled to face Stockton slapper in a 2018 bout that never took place, likely due to “crazy” negotiations that made Diaz “difficult to communicate." Fortunately for UFC fans, it wasn't enough to keep Dustin Poirier (The Diamond) from trying again.
The decisive victory over McGregor makes us believe it.

As for Oliveira (30-8, 1 NC), his priority is to fight for the lightweight title, which explains why he so quickly abandoned the fight with Michael Chandler. Charles Oliveira (do Bronx) is the winner of eight fights in a row, seven of them early, including last December's victory over Tony Ferguson.
I'm probably the only one who thinks Diaz would be better off fighting this guy.
