27-0. This is the biggest undefeated streak in MMA history, held by Khabib Nurmagomedov. However, come Saturday night, Khabib’s undefeated run might just be coming to an end. Khabib vs Poirier is his first fight back in the Octagon in almost a year and this time, he faces an opponent who has pretty much the same fighting skill as his own.
