Nurmagomedov hasn’t fought since beating Dustin Poirier in Abu Dhabi on Sept. 7, 2019. How will the layoff affect one of the greatest fighters in MMA history? There’s talk he might want to fight just twice more, and White said he’s open to the possibility of Nurmagomedov finishing off his career vs. Georges St-Pierre.
Saturday’s UFC Fight Night main event in Las Vegas features one of MMA’s hottest prospects. Edmen Shahbazyan, the 22-year-old who is 11-0 with 10 first-round stoppages, will face veteran middleweight Derek Brunson, who has won two straight fights. Flyweight contenders Joanne Calderwood and Jennifer Maia will meet in the co-main event.
Gaethje (22-2, 5-2 UFC) was a Division I All-American wrestler who’s also one of the most dynamic strikers in MMA. Will this be the right combination to hand Nurmagomedov (28-0, 12-0 UFC) his first loss? Gaethje battered Tony Ferguson on May 9 to win the interim belt and will have a ton of momentum.
