Khabib Nurmagomedov will defend his UFC lightweight belt against interim title holder, Justin Gaethje, at UFC 254. The fight will take place this Saturday, October 24th on Fight Island in Abu Dhabi, and will close out another month of fights taking place in the UAE.
Khabib was expected to fight Tony Ferguson for the belt this past April, but travel restrictions forced Khabib out of the fight. Justin Gaethje stepped in to face Ferguson and took full advantage of his opportunity, winning the interim belt to set up this fight with Khabib.
The oddsmakers have Khabib as a big favourite heading into the fight, as expected. Khabib is 28-0 in his MMA career and that includes many dominant performances against top fighters in the UFC. That said, Justin Gaethje has a strong wrestling base and moves forward throwing every punch to inflict damage. Time will tell if Gaethje does in fact have the recipe to defeat Khabib.
