Before Khabib Nurmagomedov faces off against Tony Ferguson in their title eliminator match at UFC 209 this Saturday, watch him battle Michael Johnson at UFC 205.
The Eagle has a perfect 24-0 record with 8 wins in the UFC. His win over Johnson perfectly encapsulates Nurmagomedov’s bruising style combining vicious ground and pound with some of the best grappling in MMA.
His opponent Tony Ferguson would appear to have the advantage on the feet but the 10th Planet BJJ brown belt is also a serious threat on the ground with 8 of his 22 wins coming by submission. The winner will be rewarded with a title shot against current UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor. Whoever comes out on top fight fans are in for a treat in this highly skilled match-up.
