The headliner on the UFC 254 main card is a lightweight title unification bout between undefeated champion Khabib Nurmagomedov (28-0) and interim champ Justin Gaethje (22-2). This is Khabib’s second such unification bout after he defeated former interim champion Dustin Poirier last year at UFC 242. As dominant of a fighter as he is, this could prove to be The Eagle’s toughest fight yet, as Justin Gaethje boasts some of the best grappling and wrestling credentials in the UFC — an edge that most of Khabib’s former victims did not have when they faced him in the Octagon.
