UFC 254: Khabib vs. Gaethje

Just one week after the UFC released the official promo for UFC 254: Khabib vs. Gaethje, the video has already generated over 2.3 million views on YouTube, making it one of the most popular videos on the UFC’s official YouTube channel and on track to surpass the MayMac embedded series.

Gaethje, who became the first man to TKO Tony Ferguson at UFC 249, is widely considered Nurmagomedov’s most dangerous opponent to date and the toughest stylistic matchup of his career. ‘The Highlight’ possesses vicious knockout power in both hands and has some of the best takedown defense in the UFC. Nurmagomedov, however, has taken down and mauled just about every opponent he’s ever faced and has only ever lost one round in his UFC career.

It was supposed to be him walking into the octagon to face the dominant Russian wrestler but the opportunity has slipped painfully through his fingers. 

Ferguson vs Khabib has been set up by the UFC a grand total of five times now. On each occasion, fans, the fighters themselves and Dana White have been left cursing the MMA Gods. 

In 2015, when the fight was first was made, Khabib pulled out injured and the same thing happened to Ferguson months later. 

At UFC 209 the Russian missed weight and was forced to withdraw. Then they were scheduled to face each other again at UFC 223 but on the week of the fight, Ferguson tripped over some camera cables while fulfilling media obligations and suffered a freak knee injury.
