It looks like the UFC will be able to utilize the services of Khabib Nurmagomedov in early 2015, as the #2 ranked lightweight is reporting he’s received the greenlight to fight again, after incurring a knee injury in July.
The 26 year-old Nurmagomedov, who hasn’t fought since April when he decisioned Rafael dos Anjos, relayed the news via Twitter:

The renowned grappler has worked his way to the top of the UFC’s 155 division by winning six straight in the Octagon.
More recently, Nurmagomedov (22-0) has been calling for a fight with the winner of the December 6th bout between champion Anthony Pettis and Gilbert Melendez.
