Now the popular 26-year-old is stepping up to lightweight for the first time in his career to face the 25-0 phenom Nurmagomedov, who has torn through the UFC's lightweight division since his arrival, winning all nine of his bouts inside the octagon.
"I mean seriously, there is a precedent for having a fight for a "real" title and keeping an "interim" title intact".
Secondly, both Khabib and Holloway have a common enemy in Conor McGregor, the current lightweight title holder.
UFC 223 is set to take place on Saturday, April 7, 2018, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
Just two month ago, Max Holloway pulled out of his March 3 title defense against Frankie Edgar due to a leg injury.
Holloway has agreed to come in as the replacement fighter, and should he defeat Nurmagomedov, he will match McGregor's record of holding two belts at the same time.
White said after the event that he was embarrassed and promised to one day make it up to the fans of Calgary. "He's a fighter's champion".
