Between the Links: Is Khabib the GOAT? UFC 254 fallout, lightweight title picture

Check out episode 22 of Between the Links as Mike Heck moderates the matchup between MMA Fighting’s Jed Meshew and journalist Ant Walker as they react to Khabib Nurmagomedov’s second-round submission win over Justin Gaethje in the UFC 254 lightweight championship headliner, along with his subsequent retirement from the sport. The panel also talks where “The Eagle” sits on the GOAT list.

In addition, they lay out what should happen with the lightweight title moving forward compared to what many believe will ultimately happen, talk the three stars—outside of Nurmagomedov—of UFC 254, and reveal what they would choose to watch if they could only watch Bellator 250 on Thursday—headlined by the middleweight title fight between Gegard Mousasi and Douglas Lima, or UFC Vegas 12 on Saturday, which is headlined by Uriah Hall vs. Anderson Silva.
