Fight fans rejoice because fight week is upon us. This Saturday night, Conor McGregor takes on Khabib Nurmagomedov in a fight that has the entire world talking. I’m very excited about this fight because I know both men will give 100%, leaving it all in the middle of the cage and I can not wait to watch history as it happens live Saturday night.
The current betting lines on the UFC’s main event are -155 for Khabib and +125 for McGregor.
Also this weekend you have a heavyweight showdown between Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller and Thomas Adamek. I don’t know about you but I personally can’t wait for this fight because I truly feel Miller is the next big thing in the heavyweight division. I don’t see the fight going the distance, I can’t see Adamek dealing with Miller’s power and I don’t see putting any pressure on Miller the entire night.
Since I’m talking about boxing, the WBC has just put a list of mandatory fights they want to see take place. I am personally very excited when I see the possible match ups coming in the near future.
• GGG vs Jermall Charlo
• Keith Thurman vs Shawn Porter 2
• Gary Russell vs Leo Santa Cruz
• Jorge Linares vs Adrien Broner
• Mikey Garcia vs Luke Campbell
• Anthony Dirrell vs Avni Yildirim
• Julian Williams vs Erislandy Lara
And finally, Sergio Martinez wants to come out of retirement to face Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in a rematch. I’m going to just leave this out there and would love to hear your thoughts on this.
