Khabib Nurmagomedov is undoubtedly one of the most talented lightweights in the world. He has dominated all fighters that he has faced and now asks Dana White for a title shot against Conor McGregor. Nurmagomedov actually asked White for McGregor between rounds as well as after the fight too.
Nurmagomedov is 24-0 and has clearly made his case for a title shot. The only other person that would make sense is Tony Ferguson because he has 9 wins in a row in the division.
It is hard to decide between Ferguson and Nurmagomedov, but 24-0 is 24-0. There are many people that would predict that Nurmagomedov’s grappling is too much for McGregor. Others might say that McGregor’s striking is light years ahead of Nurmagomedov’s.
There is also speculation that McGregor will fight Nate Diaz again for the 3rd time. Also, McGregor moving back up to 170 lbs to face Tyron Woodley is also highly speculated. Georges St-Pierre mentioned that McGregor is an opponent that he would come back to the UFC for.
