Khabib Nurmagomedov is teasing to a fight announcement on Instagram and it's playing with my heart strings.

He posted a video that according to translates to him saying, "I would like to answer some questions that have come, and they are mainly linked to my next fight. Soon I will have a fight and I have already proposed a duel. There are some things that I can not tell you, but expect good news soon."

He also posted an image with the phrase "It's time: Title Shot" calling out the current champion, Eddie Alvarez.

"Do you really believe, that with that only one UFC victory, you are great fighter and can dictate your terms?" he wrote. "I don't think so. Remember, with or without the belt, I will hunt you down. Your name in my blacklist."

Um, I for one would NOT want to be on Nurmagomedov's blacklist.

So does this mean he's going to announce a fight with Alvarez? Or are these two posts irrelevant to each other?

Only time will tell I guess.
