Without Conor McGregor, it’s hard to get excited about any matchups in the lightweight division. The one exception to that, however: Khabib Nurmagomedov versus Tony Ferguson. These dudes have built up more momentum than a pair of runaway trains, and after having flattened everyone else in their respective paths, it’s time they face each other. That is, of course, happening at UFC 209.

Also happening at UFC 209: Tyron Woodley versus Stephen Thompson. When they last clashed, these fellas beat the hell out of each other, and the end result was a draw.

These two fights are pretty compelling reasons to watch UFC 209. Anyway, here are a couple preview vids for the event.
