Placing Khabib Nurmagomedov Within The MMA G.O.A.T Conversation

UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov not looking for McGregor rematch How to watch Khabib vs Poirier in UFC 242

The undefeated Russian managed to score a relatively easy win over Dustin Poirier, who submitted to a rear-naked choke in the third round.

"Book my rematch for Moscow", McGregor wrote on Twitter.

MMA - UFC 242 - Khabib Nurmagomedov v Dustin Poirier - Men's UFC Lightweight title - - September 7, 2019 Khabib Nurmagomedov in action against Dustin Poirier in UFC 242 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates of Sept. 7, 2019. Nurmagomedov has stopped three of his last five opponents by submission, and he is challenging Jon Jones and Amanda Nunes for unofficial pound-for-pound supremacy in mixed martial arts.

Ferguson vs. Nurmagomedov has been the ultimate cursed UFC fight, first being planned for "The Ultimate Fighter 22" finale in December 2015 only to be canceled when Nurmagomedov suffered an injury. "If they go insane with me, I'm going to go insane with them".

"Why I wear this t-shirt - I know Dustin does a lot of charity work".

Medvedev Fights Back To Force Fifth Set In US Open Final
Nadal has won his 19th Grand Slam title, only one short of Roger Federer who holds record 20 Grand Slams. After all, Nadal crushed Medvedev in the recent Masters final in Montreal 6-3, 6-0.

UFC 242 also includes a lightweight fight between Edson Barboza and Paul Felder, which should be the afternoon's most entertaining bout.

"And UFC think I'm just a nice guy or something like this".

In what has been one of the most hotly anticipated fights in recent years, Dagestani-born Khabib was looking to re-establish himself as one of the biggest names in the sport, following his nine-month suspension for his part in the UFC 229 aftermath. "I would like to benefit from this opportunity and thank all my supporters who came to cheer for me from Dagestan", he added. He also has great jiu jitsu, so this could potentially turn into a fight where Poirier's jiu jitsu is up against Nurmagomedov's wrestling. Makhachev now owns a five-fight UFC winning streak and should he add another to that total on a pay per view card, a serious step up in competition would nearly certainly be on the way. The main event is super strong and the undercard is packed with a number of fairly important fights for the Lightweight division as a whole. I'm very grateful. It's the third time in the octagon this year and I want to stay active. Khabib, now ranked second in UFC's pound-for-pound rankings, has dominated the sport, last defeating Conor McGregor in October of 2018.

MMA journalist Shaheen Al-Shatti revealed the rudimentary air conditioning in the arena was doing little to quell the heat, and said it would no doubt affect the fights. "I'm going to sell the shirt and give all the money to him", he said.
