UFC 254 is finally here. After weeks of talking back and forth, the lightweight unification bout fans have been waiting all summer to see will go down on Saturday night afternoon from Fight Island in Abu Dhabi. Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov will take on interim titleholder Justin Gaethje in the main event of UFC 254 where he puts his perfect 28-0 record on the line.
Gaethje enters the fight as hot as possible with four straight TKO finishes, including a stunning stoppage of Tony Ferguson in May, derailing the possibility of booking Nurmagomedov and his biggest rival for a sixth time. Nurmagomedov has been out of action since September 2019 when he stopped Dustin Poirier by submission.
Plus, the co-main event sees a middleweight title eliminator as former champ Robert Whittaker takes on Jared Cannonier. Current champ Israel Adesanya said after his most recent fight he’d like to take on Cannonier, the 36-year-old vet, in his next title defense if Cannonier is successful against Whittaker. But the former champ may not be far from a rematch if he wins after beating Darren Till earlier this summer.
