Dana White: McGregor - Poirier winner likely to get Title shot
At the moment, there is a lot of uncertainty when it comes to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight division. Because the current champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has ended his career and is leaving UFC 29-0, 13-0. According to UFC president Dana White, what happens next at 155 pounds will depend on what comes out of his meeting with the Eagle in a couple of weeks on Fight Island.

” I'm getting on a plane on Monday and heading to Abu Dhabi, I don't know when Khabib will arrive there, but we'll meet him as soon as he arrives, " White said during a recent conversation with a journalist.

Meanwhile, the 155-pound division still has to move forward, and the big fight between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier, due to take place at UFC 257, on January 23, 2021, will likely determine the next contender for the title in this division.

” I don't know if they'll be ranked or something, but yes, whoever wins this fight will probably be next in line, " White added.

However, if Khabib decides to return for another fight, he has repeatedly stated that he is not interested in a rematch against Conor or Dustin, as he has already finished both of them.

Michael Chandler Hopes to force Khabib to end Career with Dominant Win over Dan Hooker
Michael Chandler will make his UFC debut on January 23, 2021, and will face Dan Hooker in the main event of UFC 257 at Fight Island, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. This is a long-awaited opportunity for Chandler to prove his worth in the UFC after spending most of his career in Bellator MMA. Chandler intends to make a strong statement, big enough to possibly earn a fight against Conor McGregor or Dustin Poirier — who will headline UFC 257 — or even a title fight against reigning champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

” I want to put a stamp on my representation to UFC fans of who I am by finishing off Dan Hooker or dominating him, " Chandler said in an interview. “It really puts me in a position where maybe I'll go out for a Conor-Poirier winner or get the next title fight against Khabib.

Curtis Blades vs Derrick Lewis is scheduled for the main event on February 20
A major clash between heavyweight contenders Curtis Blades and Derrick Lewis could break out again. The original fight was supposed to take place on November 28, 2020, but COVID-19 disrupted the fight when Blades tested positive just a day before the fight.

According to ESPN, it was moved to UFC Fight Night events on February 20, 2020. The venue of the event has not yet been confirmed, although it will most likely be the APEX of the UFC in Las Vegas, Nevada.

There was a lot of trash talk around this match, but ultimately, this is an important heavyweight event, regardless of the hype. Blades has won four consecutive fights, including major wins over Alexander Volkov and Junior Dos Santos. Indeed, he was perfect against all but Francis Ngannou.

Meanwhile, Lewis is making plans to win his second heavyweight title. The Black Beast put together its own three-fight winning streak, most recently stopping Alexey Oleynik in the main event of the evening.

John McCarthy speaks out about the fight between Israel Adesanya and Jan Blachowicz
Popular referee John McCarthy, who is now a commentator and host of the podcast, understands why the UFC decided to organize a fight between Israel Adesanya and Jan Blachowicz.

"It's a smart move by the UFC, a very smart move," John McCarthy said in the latest installment of his podcast. "It's simple – since Jon Jones left the light heavyweight division, the division immediately dimmed. Yes, Blachowicz beat Reyes, became a champion, and he is a worthy champion, I'm not going to downplay his merits, but since John left, the division, which for a long time was one of the strongest in the roster, immediately lost its gloss. Light heavyweights shone in the UFC for a very long time, but now the division does not have the same aura. Izzy's arrival can bring that aura back»

We remind you that the light heavyweight title fight between Jan Błachowicz and Israel Adesanya will be the main event of the evening of UFC 259, which will be held on March 6, most likely in Las Vegas.

Tony Ferguson has promised fans the "coolest and meanest "version of" El Cucuya " this year
The fifth number of lightweight UFC Tony Ferguson (25-5) spent the most unsuccessful year in 2020. In April, he would have liked to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov, but the fight again did not take place due to the coronovirus pandemic. Then in May, Khabiba took aim at Justin Gatji, who dealt with Ferguson with amazing ease and got the full right to a title fight with the champion.

After that, Tony got a chance to regain his right by sharing the octagon with Charles Oliveira in December, but here again he was defeated by a unanimous decision.

Many fans called Ferguson the biggest failure of the past year, but in his instagram, "El Cucuy" promised to return.

"Noise pollution. I have completed all my tasks and am focused on my next task. Well, I put on my work boots and made 2020 my bitch. Forward to better business solutions and greater effort. Some chances have happened, others have failed, and I'm grateful for that. Not everyone has such conditions. Don't stop following your dreams. Be the change you want to see. Expect to see the biggest and toughest version of me in 2021! Look at it with different eyes. Know what's going to happen and put that plan into action, " Ferguson wrote on Instagram.

Despite the failures, Ferguson is still one of the top representatives of the lightweight division. Before losing to Justin, he was on a magnificent streak of twelve consecutive wins.
