Nurmagomedov, an undefeated Sambo fighter, has been vocal on social media and in interviews about his desire to face The Notorious in a fight and he'll finally get his chance on 6 October.

The fighter from Dagestan is undefeated in 26 professional bouts and will likely provide one of the Dubliner's toughest challenges to date.

Roll on October...
