As well as his record being the fighter longest active undefeated streak in MMA, he is also ranked as the number 2 pound-for-pound fighter in the sport, bested only by light-heavyweight, Jon Jones, and the number 1 Lightweight pound-for-pound fighter.The most recent addition to this staggering win record came against Dustin Poirier back in September where he defended his title at Lightweight Champion for the second time and unified the UFC Lightweight Championship. This followed a lengthy ban from the sport following a post-match brawl in the match where he defended the title for the first time.Khabib’s form after being banned for 9 months Of course, most people, even those who aren’t familiar with UFC, will know of the match in question as it was against the most recognisable figure in the sport, Connor McGregor. In this highly billed match, where there was much abuse and controversy leading up to the bout, he defended the title from its previous McGregor, who had vacated the title due to absence thanks to a 4th round submission. However, Khabib proceeded to leap over the side of the cage and got into an altercation with McGregor’s training partner, Dillion Danis.This resulted in Khabib being banned from the support for 9 months.However, in his return fight against Poirier, he showed that he lost nothing in that time off and dispatched off his rival in the 3rd round via another submission, the 10th of his career. This allowed him to hold onto his title which he has now had in his grasp since April 2018, after winning on a decision against, Al Laquinta.A win here will continue his position as the man to beat in the division and will continue his ferocious win record.
