Will the fifth time be the charm for Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson?

If UFC president Dana White has his way, the most elusive MMA fight of this generation will go down at a yet-to-be-named event on April 18 in the New York City borough of Brooklyn.

According to a Monday report by UFC promotional partner ESPN, White said the company hopes to book the fight as the main event for a pay-per-view card at Barclays Center. Neither fighter has commented yet on the potential fight date.

Ballengee Group, which manages Ferguson, told MMA Junkie that both parties are “in late stages of negotiations.” Nurmagomedov’s manager, Ali Abdelaziz, teased “BREAKING NEWS SOON” earlier Monday on Twitter and later

Nurmagomedov last competed at UFC 242, where he submitted Dustin Poirier to retain his title. Ferguson's last win was over Donald Cerrone earlier this year at UFC 238.
