A lightweight tilt between undefeated Dagestanian Khabib Nurmagomedov (23-0) and Michael Johnson (17-10) has officially been added to UFC 205 at the final hour.

The announcement was made mid pre-fight press conference by UFC President Dana White.

According to our sources, one of the main reasons Nurmagomedov was tapped to get on the card was as an insurance policy just incase of an untimely injury to one of the main event participants.
