Khabib Nurmagomedov kept it brief but promising in a post made to his official Instagram account amid speculation over his first title defence.
We are still very much in the early days of Khabib Nurmagomedov’s reign over the lightweight division, but even now, with us just under three months removed from his title-winning performance, already it looks as though we’re on the verge of a potentially huge matchup for his first title-defence.
Conor McGregor is the most likely opponent it would seem. Of course, his ongoing legal issues have taken away from his ability to compete but with things starting to trend in a more positive direction – do not be surprised to see an announcement before the summer is out.
Khabib himself took to his official Instagram account to hint that he’ll be smashing someone before long and while there would usually be reason to suspect this as something less – the way things have been looking recently you would be wise to take him at his word.
