It is a coincidence or not but UFC 257 features Khabib's biggest foe, Conor McGregor, in the main event. It took the popular Irishman only 40 seconds to deliver a vicious knockout, and it took far less time for what felt like millions of his fans to get on Twitter and start trash talking everyone else in the UFC.
Sure, but who gets the next title shot?
In the week gone by Khabib Nurmagomedov and UFC president, Dana White met each other to discuss the future prospects of Nurmagomedov.
Just over a year on from his most recent fight, Conor McGregor is back in the ring this weekend, as he takes on Dustin Poirier in the Lightweight Division in Abu Dhabi on Saturday night in a must-watch fight at UFC 257. Poirier's tight stance is a tie-in to McGregor's wide southpaw stance and the fight will play out on the feet. They weren't even the main event.
McGregor's fights rarely go the distance.
Conor McGregor of Ireland laughs after the first round against Khabib Nurmagomedov of Russian Federation in their UFC lightweight championship bout during the UFC 229 event inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Oct. 6, 2018. McGregor is coming back from a year off for a rematch against Poirier in the first pay-per-view of the year, at UFC 257 on January 24 in Abu Dhabi. Their first bout of course ended in an ugly brawl between the two camps, but McGregor remains desperate to prove he can avenge that submission defeat from October 2018. Those close to him are saying he's in the best shape of his life.

His fight with Mayweather reportedly earned him $130M. Largely this was due to how both men have grown in skills since their 2014 clash. "The sport needs it to happen, the people need it to happen, (but) I'm not going to chase it", the 32-year-old said. Cutting weight to 145lbs was becoming increasingly problematic for Poirier, who moved up to the lightweight division, vowing to remain there for the rest of his career.
Another reason for that is the apparent maturity of both men over the years.
"That's a complete confidence in my preparation and my abilities", said McGregor.
Nurmagomedov's father died due to complications from Covid-19 a year ago and, following a spectacular submission win over Justin Gaethje that extended his professional record to 29 wins and no defeats, the Dagestani said he was retiring after promising his mother he would not fight again.
"Please don't be trying to get rid of me guys, I love it here".
The stakes are high with the victor of Saturday's main event expected to compete for the title next, with long-reigning champion Khabib Nurmagomedov announcing his retirement previous year.
