Two lightweights riding hot streaks, Gleison Tibau and Khabib Nurmagomedov, will face off at UFC 148, promotion officials announced Thursday.

Featuring a light heavyweight rubber match between Tito Ortiz and Forrest Griffin, UFC 148 takes place July 7 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The event is also expected to host former middleweight champion Rich Franklin’s return to 185 pounds, as “Ace” locks horns with ex-Strikeforce titlist Cung Le.

Big step up for Nurmagomedov. I think Tibau might UD him.

I agree that it's a step up for him but he looked good against Shalorus and a fight with Tibau is a fair way to gauge how well he'll fare against the gatekeeper types.

If Nurmagomedov wins this the hype will go off the scale! Good match up though.

Big step up for khabib. Tibau may just be too much for him.

i think gleison has massive potential. He is heavy handed and excellent on the ground. Jim miller spent half of their fight failing to take him down at all. His biggest downfall is his handspeed against smaller quicker guys, but he will land a big one and follow it to the ground for a second rd tko

It's only a matter of time before Gleison fights at his natural weight in the HW division.
