A sizzling lightweight matchup is making its way to Las Vegas.

Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson have both signed bout agreements to meet at UFC 209 on March 4 at T-Mobile Arena. MMA Fighting confirmed an initial Wednesday report by the Los Angeles Times.

With UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor on the sidelines awaiting the birth of his first child, the UFC has made this bout a five-round interim title fight.

I think Ferguson is in for a rough fight.

Am I the only one that thinks Fergy has a shot at winning via KO? We've seen Khabib get rocked in the past, if Ferguson can keep the fight standing early, I think he has a good shot at winning. Once Khabib takes him down, though. It's game over. Now, Tony is a 10PP BB, and Bravo's jits is unconventional enough they might have a few subs in his back pocket for when he's on his back. Should be a sick fight if Khabib can show up healthy.
