Khabib vs Gaethje Betting Preview 

The 32-year-old Nurmagomedov is a perfect 28-0 in his professional career, including 12-0 in the UFC. Since taking possession of the 155-pound belt with a dominating performance over Al Iaquinta, Nurmagomedov has had two successful defenses of that title. His patented ground-and-pound drains the fight out of his opponents until they fall via TKO or are forced to submit.

A Nurmagomedov's win for submission is backable at Evens with VBet, one of the best online bookmakers offering the highest odds on Combat sports.

Justin Gaethje is coming off a KO/TKO win against Tony Ferguson on September 7, 2019 at UFC 249 and holds a 22-2-0 record. The power-punching Gaethje dominated from the outset and eventually stopped the resilient Ferguson, who saw a 12-fight win streak come to an end.

Gaethje is known for being one of the most violent fighters in the sport and has yet to go the distance as a UFC fighter. A win by KO or TKO for the American is priced at 43/10 with VBet.
