Next year, two of the very best fighters in the world will go head-to-head in one of the most anticipated title fights in UFC history, as reigning, undefeated lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov will defend his title against Tony Ferguson in the UFC 249 main event at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
Khabib (12-0 UFC, 28-0 MMA) is ranked #2 in the UFC pound-for-pound rankings, while Ferguson (15-3 UFC, 23-3 MMA) is ranked #10. With both men already on the p4p list, Chael Sonnen believes a win at UFC 249 could be for all the marbles, as ‘The American Gangster’ says whoever wins could be crowned ‘the best ever’.
