Khabib Nurmagomedov -165
30-year-old Conor McGregor (21-3) stands 5’9″ with a 74-inch reach. The native of Ireland hasn’t fought in the Octagon since beating Eddie Alvarez through TKO (punches) in the next round at UFC 205 way back in November of 2016. That win has been preceded by a vast majority decision win over Nate Diaz at UFC 202 in August of 2016 and that bout was a rematch after Diaz stunned McGregor with a second round rear-naked choke at UFC 196 in March of 2016.
30-year-old Khabib Nurmagomedov (26-0) stands 5’10” with a 70-inch reach. The Russian is unbeaten in his profession and comes in to this name fight a unanimous decision win over Al Iaquinta at UFC 223 in April. I won’t spill the beans a lot by making a pick , but I will say, Conor McGregor is in trouble. He’s been out of action for a couple of decades and he’s fighting arguably the best fighter on Earth. I smell a entry loss coming to the loud-mouthed prior champ. Okay, so I spilled the beans. So what!
The only way we’ll know is on October 6th. In conclusion, keep in mind open for anything since anything could happen in this crazy world of sports. You might just get that winning ticket you’ve been looking for.
