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?
