UFC lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov will be forced to miss the rest of 2014 following surgery to repair ligaments in his knee.

Nurmagomedov, unbeaten overall and in the UFC, was expected to face Donald Cerrone later this year. However, shortly after signing the bout agreement, he suffered the injury in training.

“Today I had surgery on the anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus, make (do) for me back in early 2015,” he wrote on Instagram, posting a picture of himself in the hospital bed still.
