Khabib vs Ferguson Prop Bet

All Khabib-Ferguson odds, lines and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.
- Double Chance: Khabib Nurmagomedov by KO/TKO or on Points (+105) – One of the most dominant champions in UFC history, three of Khabib's last five wins have come by submission, but Tony Ferguson may be the best grappler he's ever fought, with eight submission wins of his own and a black belt in 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu. Ferguson has proven susceptible to takedowns though, surrendering 11 over his last 10 fights. Khabib's dominant top game could carry him to victory here, but the heavy favorite and reigning champ isn't likely to win by submission, as the last time Ferguson lost that way was in 2009.
