Khabib Nurmagomedov is a Russian professional mixed martial artist of Avar heritage. Nurmagomedov is a two-time Combat Sambo World Champion and the reigning undisputed UFC Lightweight Champion. He currently holds the longest undefeated streak in MMA, with 27 wins, and remains undefeated in professional MMA.
Hailing from Russia’s Dagestan region, he is the first Russian and the first Muslim to win a UFC title. As of October 8, 2018, he is ranked at No. 2 in the official UFC pound-for-pound rankings. His headline bout with Conor McGregor at UFC 229 drew 2.4 million pay-per-view buys, the most ever for an MMA event.
A bout with Ferguson had been scheduled for the fourth time and was expected to take place on April 7, 2018, at UFC 223. However, on April 1, 2018, it was reported that Ferguson injured his knee and was to be replaced by Max Holloway. On April 6, Holloway was pulled from the fight after the New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC) declared him unfit to compete due to extreme weight cutting, and replaced by Al Iaquinta. Only Nurmagomedov was eligible to win the championship, as Iaquinta weighed in 0.2 pounds over the championship weight limit. Nurmagomedov dominated the fight, controlling Iaquinta from start to finish, and won via unanimous decision to become the UFC Lightweight Champion.
