Spine-Tingling Promo For Khabib Nurmagomedov Vs Justin Gaethje At UFC 254 Has Dropped

An official promo for Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Justin Gaethje at UFC 254 has dropped and it promises to be one of the biggest fights of the year.


Gaethje earned the right to challenge lightweight champion Nurmagomedov after defeating Tony Ferguson at UFC 249 to become interim champion.

Nurmagomedov hasn't fought since September 2019 and 'The Highlight' promises to be one of his toughest opponents yet.


BT Sport have released an official promo for the fight on October 24 and they've revealed the show will start at 7pm UK time.

Nurmagomedov's record is currently 28-0 and in the promo video, he explains: "Everybody is talking about how it is a challenge.

"What are they going to say after, when I smash him?"


While footage of Gaethje throwing the interim title away at UFC 249 is shown and he states: "I'm waiting for the real thing."

Fans have reacted to the promo and they can't wait to see both men square off.



Nurmagomedov isn't worried about being rusty in the octagon and has predicted a stoppage win in the third or fourth round.


"He's gonna be kickboxing and wrestling, like [a] mix, and my goal is to make him tired," 'The Eagle' told BT Sport.

"I'm gonna make him tired and maybe in number three or round number four, my plan is to finish him."

Who do you think will win the UFC 254 main event, Khabib Nurmagomedov or Justin Gaethje?
