Khabib «The Eagle» Nurmagomedov
Khabib Nurmagomedov is a Russian professional mixed martial artist.
Nurmagomedov remains undefeated as a professional.
If I go out there and stop Khabib, I’m the best lightweight fighter to ever strap on a pair of four-ounce gloves. Simple and plain.
This is the fight that gives me the undisputed title. But on the other side, this is the fight where I etch my name into the history books forever. Because of this win, I’m going to forever be a part of the best of the best of mixed martial arts.
Dustin «The Diamond» Poirier
Dustin Poirier is a American professional mixed martial artist.
I’m not like a fake champion who never defends his title. I defended one time already - this is my second. And in my division, interim champion, I don’t like this, even if they deserve it. I want to be undefeated, undisputed. No more interim. I want to take this. Because in the jungle there’s only one king.
I think it will be a very cool fight. Khabib is a grappler, Poirier is a fighter. If in the first rounds Khabib does not impose his struggle, then the fight will drag on, and Poirier will have chances. But if Khabib starts to control him from the first rounds, then Khabib will win.
