"Conor's losing the belt, these two are fighting for the belt".
The victor of that contest will take over McGregor's belt, which has been stripped from him due to his inactivity in the sport over the last two years. Well, here's a quick timeline.
The confrontation is believed to have revolved around Conor McGregor, who is a training partner of Lobov's but one of Nurmagomedov's fiercest rivals.
"The interim belt that he had, those two [Nurmagomedov and Ferguson] were supposed to fight - doesn't happen".
Now McGregor will be forced to watch Nurmagomedov and Holloway compete for the undisputed championship on Saturday night with the victor being declared lightweight champion.
Tony Ferguson was originally billed to take on Nurmagomedov in the headline fight, but has been forced to withdraw due to a torn knee ligament which he suffered during his pre-fight media obligations.
June 3, 2017: Holloway defeats Aldo and becomes the unified featherweight champion. White had not announced he would officially strip McGregor of the championship until Wednesday when he discussed the popular Irish fighter's return to UFC this year.
Nurmagomedov - who looks like "The Office" beet farmer Mose Schrute - was the only fighter in NY who skipped the open workout and instead turned the session into a Q&A with fans.

The prospective undisputed UFC lightweight title will be contested in the main event for UFC 223 on Saturday, April 7.
The craziest part of all of this is that it doesn't feel surprising, at all.
Lesnar has not fought for White's company since the infamous UFC 200 in July 2016, when he defeated Mark Hunt but later failed a pair of drug tests, leading to a lawsuit from Hunt.
There's only one question for UFC fans.
The fact that the UFC managed to find as exciting a replacement as Holloway feels like a minor miracle.
"It's the last fight on earth that I want to make again", White said. Let us know your thoughts on the matter in the comments section below! Not that McGregor ever needs help selling a fight, but that matchup now sells itself. He even said that the UFC was trying to protect McGregor. But make him earn it.
Conor McGregor is in trouble. So, McGregor flew in from Ireland and went looking for Khabib at the end of the press conference.
He said: "Conor's coming back this year, 100 per cent he will fight this year. He will fight this year".
His most recent competitive appearance was in a boxing match last August, in which he was defeated by Floyd Mayweather Jr.
