After a brief scare in which he skipped out on obligatory media appearances with no warning, UFC 223 headliner Khabib Nurmagomedov seems to have been located, as reported by MMAImports.com.

The discovery comes after the official account for the American Kickboxing Academy posted a picture of the UFC star after a weight-cutting session, suggesting that Nurmagomedov had no-showed in order to continue trying to make weight for his upcoming fight. UFC officials had been unable to contact him during his absence.
