Khabib Nurmagomedov will take on Tony Ferguson in the co-main event at UFC 209 this Saturday in Las Vegas.
With the two contenders currently riding eight and nine fight win streaks in the UFC, Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson is being talked about as one of the greatest lightweight match ups in the history of the promotion.

Speaking about the intriguing match up, several pros have now made their picks for the interim lightweight bout with many feeling that the clash is simply too close to call. However, although some sat on the fence, it seems that the majority feel that the bookies have the odds in the right order for this one, and that Nurmagomedov will eventually come out on top.
