UFC 242 Khabib vs Poirier: What Went Down?
The main event of UFC 242 witnessed Khabib Nurmagomedov extending his winning streak to 28-0-0. The undefeated Russian managed to score a relatively easy win over Dustin Poirier, who submitted to a rear-naked choke in the third round.
Khabib’s domination in the mat was clear all throughout the fight and while Poirier did manage to get some shots at him, and had him caught in a strong Guillotine, he just didn’t have what it takes to defeat Khabib. After the fight, the two embraced. Khabib even jumped the cage to hug Dana White.
Let's be completely clear about this.
The only fight – and I mean the ONLY fight – to make at lightweight NEXT…
Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson.
There is no alternative.

Is Tony Ferguson Next in Line? Khabib vs Ferguson Happening Soon?
Now that Dustin Poirier is out of the way and Khabib vs Poirier is done with, the focus will be on Khabib’s next opponent. It is expected that Tony Ferguson will be next in line. One of the most feared names in the UFC, Ferguson is known to slice up his opponents and hurt them real bad. Khabib is known for his mat attack and wrestling skills. It will be interesting to see who wins this one!
