Khabib Nurmagomedov to make his Next title Defense at the Upcoming UFC 242


On Sep. 7 Khabib Nurmagomedov, the reigning UFC lightweight champion is expected to make his next title defense against the newly crowned interim title holder, Dustin Poirier at the upcoming UFC 242 pay-per-view event in Abu Dhabi.

Conor McGregor, according to Coach Javier Mendez, remains the most dangerous opponent in the division despite getting tapped at UFC 229 last October.

Out of the four potential rivals, Mendez said that Max Holloway appears to be the easiest for Khabib because he has good boxing but doesn’t have the power to the lightweight division. The next rival, Dustin Poirier, has stamina and stability while the third, Tony Ferguson has dangerous elbows and lastly, Conor, who is the most dangerous because of his unique way of boxing.

The chances for Khalib facing McGregor are minimal because he will have first to face the winner of Tony Ferguson and Donald Cerrone who are set to collide at UFC 238 on June in Chicago.
