Five Best Fights To Make After UFC 219


Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson

Khabib Nurmagomedov proved last night that he hasn’t lost a step after a long layoff.

With lightweight champion Conor McGregor’s future uncertain, the UFC should re-book a bout between Nurmagomedov and interim champion Tony Ferguson.

The two were scheduled to fight last March at UFC 209, but the bout fell through when Nurmagomedov was forced to withdraw due to weight-cutting issues. Now, however, “The Eagle” appears to be healthy and ready to be more active.

Nurmagomedov and Ferguson have also had some back-and-forth in the media, and it’d be a bout between two of the best 155 pounders in the world.
