Khabib Nurmagomedov

Khabib is a current lightweight champion, after his famous victory against the Notorious Conor McGregor. However, after he managed to involve himself into the brawl with Conor’s helping stuff, Khabib was suspended for 9 months. It is very unusual when everyone is waiting for some fight more than they do wait for McGregor, but this is how it is now. This fight was canceled two times and both players are finally ready to prove which one is better. Khabib clearly is a favorite, because of his good wrestling skills and also for being a good puncher.

Tony Ferguson

Ferguson who’s results is 25-3  has just one bout in the past 13 months. He defeated Donald Cerrone with second-round TKO at UFC 238 in June. The doctor put an end to the fight as Cerrone clearly could not see with his right eye. The 35 years old has won 12 consecutive nights, his last loss was back in October 2013. So, both players showed very strong fights and skills in previous years and clearly won‘t give up easily. However, it will be much more difficult for Tony as he is much older, and his opponent is not also well striking, but has a very good wrestling skill, which usually makes opponent get tired.
