Who will Khabib Nurmagomedov fight in his first title defense? There are three possible opponents - and each is its own superfight. The first is a fifth attempt at booking Tony Ferguson with the Russian. But the universe might implode given how cursed this matchup seems to be. The other is a matchup with hated rival Conor McGregor, the lineal champ. Lastly, Georges St. Pierre could move down in weight in an attempt to become a three division champ - the first in the promotion’s history. But each of them will have to get through a Dagestani terminator who shreds his opponents from limb to limb.
Our top-rated online sportsbooks have set future odds for two of those scraps:
Against Tony Ferguson, the Russian is a -200 favorite with Ferguson at +170 on the comeback.
For the McGregor superfight, Nurmagomedov is a -245 favorite with McGregor at +175.

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.
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.
