Khabib vs. Gaethje

For years, hardcore MMA fans have been aware of Nurmagomedov and his awe-inspiring wrestling/grappling. But in recent years, especially since Khabib dominated Conor McGregor in 2018, the lightweight champ has become one of the  biggest names in all of MMA.

On October 24th, Nurmagomedov (29-0) will be fighting for the first time since last September, when he submitted Dustin Poirier.

Gaethje (22-2) is also another fighter, who for a long time, was someone who big MMA fans were well aware of. But, on account of his recent three-fight winning streak, which saw him stop Tony Ferguson in May to win the interim belt, his fame has reached new fights.
