Russian UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov – the man who brutalized Conor McGregor – will be revalidating his UFC title against UFC interim champ Justin Gaethje in the stellar hit of UFC 254 this Saturday, October 24, in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
The unbeaten, popular Khabib Nurmagomedov (28-0, and 12-0 in UFC), has defended his 155-pound belt twice before, most recently a 3rd round submission win over Dustin Poirier at UFC 242 in September of last year.
His tough American opponent Justin Gaethje (22-2, 5-2 UFC) has won 4 good fights in a row, including a major 5th round TKO victory over Tony Ferguson last May, for which he conquered the UFC Lightweight Interim Belt.
Who will emerge victorious?
