Khabib Nurmagomedov the undefeated UFC lightweight champion(27-0-0) hasn’t competed since taking out Conor McGregor at UFC 229, where he got nine month suspension for his post-fight actions. Khabib's incredible unbeaten run in the UFC's toughest division is one of the most impressive achievements in UFC history. The 30-year old has looked untouchable in nearly all of his fights in the UFC and he'll be hoping to upgrade unbeaten record. The Eagle is ranked #3 in the UFC’s pound for pound rankings.

Dustin Poirier - The Diamond (25-5-0, USA)

Dustin Poirier won the interim UFC lightweight title by defeating Max Holloway two months ago. Poirier is #8 ranked Pound for Pound fighter. And is one of the most exciting fighters in the Octagon today, with his recognizable fighting style. The Diamond has four post-fight performance bonuses in his last six bouts. His game is centered on striking. Poirier has power in his fists and he can throw punches in bunches. Also he is an excellent counter-striker, who has a very high fighting IQ.

Who will win?

While Poirier has been on an incredible streak, including a 5-0-1 record since the start of 2017 with victories over three current or former UFC champions, Khabib is still the favorite to come out on top and defend his crown. If we look at betting odds Khabib is clear favorite, but Poirier can be the one who can shock the world and has a chance to beat Khabib.
