Khabib Nurmagomedov shocked the combat world last Saturday after he announced his retirement following his win over Justin Gaethje at UFC 254.
As a result, “The Eagle” leaves MMA at 29-0, 13-0 under the UFC banner and as the undisputed lightweight champion.
Obviously, the belt will now be vacated and two deserving combatants will fight for the title.
Which begs the questions: Will McGregor vs Poirier 2 be for the title?
The bout was rumored to go down at Welterweight, but it was never finalized. Furthermore, Dana White isn’t interested in a 170 pound bout.
That being said, since the fight isn’t official, perhaps the promotion can lure both men to make the drop down to 155 pounds by January 23, 2021 in order to fight for the title to make it a bit more interesting.
