    If they both win their fights on Saturday how about Myles Jury vs Khabib Nurmagomedov? I'd take Jury in this fight.

    That would be a good fight. Although if Nurmagomedov beats Healy, especially decisively, I imagine he'll get a big step up in competition.

    I see him fighting a top 10 like Dos Anos if he wins.. Jury would be a step down and comp and I don't think Jury beats him anyway

    I love the matchup style wise and I think both guys would make a great fight out of it.

    However I don't think Jury deserves that fight just yet, nothing against him at all he's undefeated and has looked great against his opponents but so far he's beaten 2 TUF guys who are 3-3 and 5-4 in the UFC and another guy that is 0-1 in the UFC and was released after Jury beat him.

    Khabib has beaten slightly better competition and he's facing a much tougher opponent. If Khabib beats Healy he deserves a top 5 opponent such as Bendo, Melendez, etc.

    If Jury wins I'd love to see him get a crack at a tougher opponent like RDA, Barboza, Castillo, or maybe Guillard?

    I have to say I've seen these guys names, especially Nurmagomedov, thrown around here and there but I never really noticed this significance of these fighters. I don't even remember them fighting though after looking at their record I'm sure I've watched their fights.

    At any rate, I'm going to keep an eye open for these 2, especially this Saturday.

    Agree with all of this. Both good fighters but on different upward trajectories given their previous fights. Unbeaten records don't always equal out fighters.

    I think this is to low to Khabib (if he wins). The winner of Nurmagomedov/Healy should fight RDA for the next crack on the belt.

    I'd favour Khabib vs Myles, for sure. Not counting the latter out by any means, but I think Khabib has the tools to beat pretty much anyone in his division.

    my thoughts. if khalbib beats pat healy , then hes looking at a top 5 fight or someone between #4 and #8 ish imo. if khabib loses to healy then maybe a fight with myles more makes sense.

    Yup, I'd agree with all of that.

    Yes. People better not get the cart before the horse here. Pat Healy is a prospect killer for a reason.

    Khabib wins by being more well rounded and dangerous in all positions. I think he will be the first Russian champion in the UFC.

    Yeah I think Khabib is too far past Jury at this point. Khabib off a win should get a guy like RDA or Thomson. Jury deserves a solid set up, maybe feed him a mid tier big name.

    Khabib would be getting screwed big time if he wins and gets Jury next.

    If they both win Khabib should fight Bendo and Jury should fight the Pearson/Guillard winner.
