Khabib Nurmagomedov wants to tangle with Donald Cerrone, who defeated Jim Miller on Wednesday night at UFC Fight Night 45. Who ya got in this one if it goes down?

That's perfect, they both want to fight each other, make it happen!
Since Cowboy is on a hell of a roll right now and obviously Khabib has that flawless record, I think this fight does make sense. The only other possibility for Khabib would be Thomson if he gets past Green.

This fight doesn't interest me. Khabib looks like Cowboy's kryptonite. I'd much rather see Khabib fight Thomson and Cowboy fight Sanchez.

I will be rooting for Cerrone but after his fight with Barboza which he was losing for the most part and then how many times he got tagged against Miller, if Khabib can put hands on him he may be able to finish him, either way it should be a war.

This is definitely a fight that I would like to see happen, I just don't think it's a fight that Cerrone can win.

I don't know what it is about Khabib, but I hope this fight happens and cowboy chokes him out.

This fight doesn't interest me. Khabib looks like Cowboy's kryptonite. I'd much rather see Khabib fight Thomson and Cowboy fight Sanchez.



Diego Sanchez???? I was trying to figure out if there was another one on the roster. Giving Cowboy Sanchez to fight would be a huge insult to Cerrone. That would be like bringing Leonard Garcia back for a title shot.

Good point. Maybe have Cerrone face Trujilo or Jury if they come out victorious. I just think Thomson is a much stiffer test for Khabib.

Agree with the majority. Would be a fun fight but Cerrone will get thrown around like a red headed step child in the clinch. Cerrone's only hope is too catch him in a triangle or something.

Khabib by 30-27 decision.

Khabib will win the same way he did against RDA and Trujillo. A bunch of takedowns and that's it. I'm HOPING for a victory for Cowboy since he's way more exciting, but I can't see him beating Khabib.

I agree, Khabib would wrestle-stall Cowboy for as long as he can. Not to mention, I love watching both guys so I wouldn't want to see them fight and one had to lose. I gotta say though, a 5 round fight gives Cerrone a lot more chances of a finish than just 3 rounds. Khabib is a beast though, if Donald could get that win, he would definitely be next in line for a shot, but Khabib is too good of a grappler to lose that fight, I don't really want to see it. I too would rather see Khabib vs. Thomson if he gets past Green, it's a more interesting match up considering their similiar styles.
