After the carnage in UFC 241, we go straight to Abu Dhabi for the UFC 242, which features a massive fight in the lightweight division. The UFC lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov will step into the cage to face the interim lightweight champion, Dustin Poirier.
While the undefeated Russian wrecking machine, Khabib will be looking to put on a mauling performance for his fans in the arena, “The Diamond” Dustin Poirier will be aiming to defy the odds yet again and overcome the adversities.
In the co-main event of UFC 242, UFC veteran, Edson Barboza will face Paul Felder in a rematch. Both fighters are aggressive and bring chaos to the octagon and their first encounter does nothing but approves that.
The lightweight action doesn’t stop here as Islam Makhachev will be looking to make his name in the star stacked lightweight division against Davi Ramos. And we will close the show with Curtis Blayde taking on the Dagestani warrior, Shamil Abdurakhimov.
