#3. Tyron Woodley:

UFC 228 Woodley v Till

Tyron Woodley is one of the martial artist's closest to Khabib's division who has the best chance of beating him. He had recently proved that he is one of the best fighters when he retained his Welterweight Championship by beating a till-then undefeated Darren Till.

His current status in the mixed martial arts world could even possibly rival with that of Georges St-Pierre. This is definitely one of the toughest match-ups for Khabib Nurmagomedov and undoubtedly his biggest challenge.


#4. Georges St-Pierre:

UFC 217: Bisping v St-Pierre
UFC 217: Bisping v St-Pierre

If this fight were to happen, it would be one of the biggest fights in the history of Mixed Martial Arts. Both fighters have the same fighting style as they take their opponents to the ground and pound them.Β Their strengths in their divisions are unrivalled as are their grappling abilities.

Before the fight with Conor there were doubts regarding the striking capability of Khabib but after the right hook which sent Conor McGregor crashing down in the second round, there's no more doubt in his ability. These fighters facing each other would be comparable to an unstoppable force meeting an immovable object. These fighters may respect each other but when the cage closes we would be in for a show.

#5. Conor McGregor

UFC 229: Khabib v McGregor
UFC 229: Khabib v McGregor

Conor McGregor has asked Dana White for a rematch where he could face Khabib Nurmagomedov. Looking back to the Nate Diaz series, he won the second bout, but many doubt if the same would be the result with Khabib when these two finally end up facing each other.

The fight was one-sided between them, and according to many fans, he will have to work a lot on his wrestling and grappling for the rematch. It is true that he has toyed with many wrestlers like Eddie Alvarez and Chad Mendez before but Khabib is at another level. It is rumoured that he might fight cowboy Cerrone next. If he can win a few more fights and build his confidence, then it might be time for the rematch.
