After a long wait, the fans are finally getting one of the most anticipated fights in the lightweight division as the UFC is negotiating to have UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov will be defending his title against Tony Ferguson at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on April 18.

Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson

Khabib Nurmagomedov had already signed his contract to fight Ferguson, but the later hadn’t. But today, Brett Okamoto of ESPN confirmed that even Tony Ferguson had signed the contract.

“Breaking: WE GOT A FIGHT. Per Tony Ferguson’s (@TonyFergusonXT) management Ballengee Group, Tony has signed his contract to face Khabib Nurmagomedov (@TeamKhabib) on April 18 in Brooklyn. More coming to @espn shortly.” Okamoto tweeted.

UFC has previously booked the fight four times and all four times have both fighters pulled out. Khabib Nurmagomedov pulled out of fights in 2015 and 2017 because of injuries, while Tony Ferguson also pulled out in 2016 and 2018 for the very same reason.

Nurmagomedov last fought at UFC 242, where he defeated Dustin Poirier via submission in the fourth round. Ferguson’s last win was over Donald Cerrone earlier this year at UFC 238. He is also currently riding on a tremendous 12-fight winning streak in the UFC.

Who do you guys think wins this fight?
