Khabib vs. Ferguson fight predictions
This is an interesting battle. We saw Khabib dominating during his time at the UFC, but Ferguson did the same in the previous round. El Kukuy has an advantage in terms of growth and reach, so if he can continue, he will have an advantage over Khabib, because Ferguson is the best striker. However, it is almost impossible to fight Khabib, because the Eagles are such a dominant fighter that they fight every time he chooses.
New Main Fight Gaethje vs Ferguson
Due to COVID-19 pandemic fight card is change. Now Ferguson will fight against Gaethje.
