It remains to be seen if Conor McGregor will come back to defend his title, but the lightweight division will attempt to move on in the meantime. Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee will square off for the interim championship at UFC 216 on October 7. There’s no question that “El Cucuy” is deserving of a title shot, but it’s a bummer that it’s not coming against Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Khabib Nurmagomedov is finally returning to the octagon, meeting No. 3 Edson Barboza in a pivotal lightweight matchup. Expect the UFC odds at to open with Nurmagomedov as a favorite, though it’s an exceptionally dangerous matchup against a fighter who can end the fight at any moment.

The Greats

B.J. Penn is the first name that comes to mind when talking about the best lightweights in UFC history. One of only three men to win titles in two division, “The Prodigy” was easily one of the promotion’s most popular champions.

The Future of Lightweight

Conor McGregor has hinted at a future title unification bout with Tony Ferguson, but with one big stipulation: co-promotion. That’s something that Dana White has never budged on in the past, but he’s also never had a star as big as McGregor. As compelling as the unification bout would be, the impending fight between McGregor and WME-IMG has much bigger implications.
