We’re still waiting to know who Khabib Nurmagomedov will make his first title defense against. What we do know is that any fight against the three most likely challengers would be off the charts. Will he meet hated rival Conor McGregor in a superfight? Will he attempt meet Tony Ferguson for a fifth time? Or will Georges St. Pierre move to lightweight and attempt to become the first man in UFC history to win titles in three divisions by defeating an undefeated Nurmagomedov?
If any of those matchups actually happen, MMA fans can die happy.
UFC Odds and Ends
Oddsmakers have already set money lines for two possible Nurmagomedov title defenses, and he’s a favorite in both:
Against Tony Ferguson, the Russian is a -200 favorite with Ferguson at +170 on the comeback.
For the McGregor superfight, Nurmagomedov is a -245 favorite with McGregor at +175.
Reminder, McGregor and Ferguson are two of the best guys in the most stacked UFC division. That just goes to show you how crazy good Nurmagomedov is. If he can stay healthy and active, we could be looking at the greatest lightweight champion of all time. Watching him maul dudes never gets old.
