Khabib Nurmagomedov believes Dustin Poirier would become the champion soon

Charles Oliveira is currently the holder of the lightweight belt. He will soon be facing either Dustin Poirier or Conor McGregor.

Retired UFC lightweight GOAT Khabib Nurmagomedov spoke to RT Sport in an interview and explained that Poirier would soon become the lightweight champion.

Here is what Khabib had to say when asked if Oliveira would remain the champion when Islam Makhachev becomes a top-ranked lightweight:

“I just think when Islam goes up the rankings after a year there’ll be another champion. I think it will be Dustin Poirier.”

Well, Poirier needs to stich just two more back-to-back victories to make Khabib’s words come true.
