Khabib Nurmagomedov’s coach Javier Mendez names four ‘most dangerous’ opponents for the champ

In a recent interview with SportsDaily.ru , Javier Mendez the head coach of current undisputed undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib ‘The Eagle’ Nurmagomedov, named 4 most difficult challenges for the champ, ranked from least to most dangerous – as per Javier Mendez.

Here’s the list in the transcript of what he said:


“Talking about four potential rivals for Khabib I can give my assessment from the [least] dangerous to the most dangerous”. “Max Holloway [would] be the easiest for Khabib. Max has good boxing but it lacks the power to the lightweight division. Next on the list is Dustin Poirier. He’s got stamina and versatility. Tony Ferguson is my second choice. His elbows are very dangerous. And finally [the] number one contender for me is still Conor. His boxing is special, that’s his chance.”
