Who needs a fight to knock the rust off? Not the face of the fight game. He’s jumping right back into the Octagon and going for broke.
Khabib is 26-0 in his MMA career, including 10-0 in the UFC. He’s definitely not a guy to take lightly.
This is going to be a huge fight for all involved. It’s Conor’s first fight back in the Octagon, Khabib is trying to stay undefeated and there’s a belt to top it off.
