Pakistani fans are cheering for the Russian mixed fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov, who is enthusiastically popular in Pakistan.
Nurmagomedov, a sincere Sunni Muslim, who has never defeated in his career, who has a perfect record of 28-0, which also includes his embarrassing defeat of Irish fighter Conor McGregor in 2019.
The 32-year-old Russian is known as through his finest grapplers to ever grace the sport and that advantage has also made him arguably the most dominant champion seen in UFC history.
While 28 men who were defeated have tried and get the better of Nurmagomedov, the 29th men, Gaethje, has a blend of skills that might just be perfect to tackle him.
Gaethje has a record of 22-2 origins in wrestling and to go with his solid ground game, he has grown enormously skilled and contented with his boxing and won his last fight over Tony Ferguson while purely standing up.
