“Will Dustin be the favorite in the fight with Habib? It will be a close battle. I think so, because I know what Dustin is capable of, ”said a specialist on YouTube channel Artem Yalanskiy.

According to him, he sees much more than the rest and watched Porrier work in the stalls against strong opponents.

“It's clear that bookmakers look at this fight differently, but for me, Dustin is a favorite in the fight with Habib,” Brown added.

The fight between Nurmagomedov and Porje will take place on September 7 in Abu Dhabi as part of the UFC 242 tournament.

Nurmagomedov became the UFC champion in April 2018 after defeating Al Yakvinta. In October of that year, he defended his belt in a battle with Conor McGregor.
