The undisputed 155-pound champion Khabib Nurmagomedov took to Twitter and had high praise for the matchmaking on UFC 254. The card is being headlined by ‘The Eagle’ who looks to stop the ever-dangerous interim champion Justin Gaethje. Moreover, the fight is teased to possibly be the second last time Nurmagomedov ever makes the walk to the octagon.
Additionally, the pay-per-view event plays hosts to a stacked main card that is sure to produce some all-time barn-burners. The co-main event sees another lightweight clash of epic proportions between Tony Ferguson and Dustin Poirier. What’s more, the fight will serve as a sure-fire title eliminator and determine the next contender in line. Not to mention, former champion Robert Whittaker is keen to build some momentum off surging contender Jared Cannonier.
