UFC drops first promo for Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Justin Gaethje ahead of their clash on October 24.

On October 24, the undefeated Russian puts his perfect record and lightweight belt on the line against the interim champion.

The two-and-a-half minute video has been released by the UFC ramping up the excitement.

Ever since Gaethje dominated Tony Ferguson, winning by fifth-round TKO earlier this summer, there has been huge anticipation about his fight with Khabib.

Many believe he has the attributes that could cause the fearsome wrestler problems and the legendary cardio to back it up over a whole 25 minutes.

Joe Rogan’s voiceover says: ‘Khabib Nurmagomedov is 28-0, he has dominated spectacular fighters, he’s defeated world champions, he’s an undeniable, unstoppable force.

‘Justin Gaethje presents the most dangerous challenge to his title reign.’ Daniel Cormier then adds: ‘This is the scariest guy in the division for Khabib Nurmagomedov.’

Then the only line from Khabib himself as he says: ‘Before the fight, everybody says “now it will be a good challenge”, what are they going to say after I smash him.’
