Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Justin Gaethje bout set to headline an excellent card at UFC 254
UFC 254 is currently on schedule for October 24, 2020, and will be headlined by reigning UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and interim Champion Justin Gaethje.
The rest of the main card will feature some mouth-watering clashes featuring some of the finest fighters from the UFC roster. As it stands, the card will open with a Lightweight bout between Rafael dos Anjos and Islam Makhachev. The second fight of the evening will be a Middleweight bout between former division Champion Robert Whittaker and contender Jared Cannonier.
We can then expect to move on to the long-impending and hugely-anticipated clash between featherweight contenders Yair Rodriguez and Zabit Magomedsharipov. The build-up to this particular bout has been intense and viewers can expect both the fighters to put up a thrilling encounter. For the co-main event, Tony Ferguson and Dustin Poirier will collide in a huge Lightweight contender's fight.
The hype around UFC 254 is massive. And while some of these fights are yet to be confirmed for the pay-per-view by the promotion, this likely is how the final main card will shape up. Of course, there's always a possibility of the fighters withdrawing from the event due to last-minute injuries or other health-related reasons, but we hope that doesn't happen this time around.Published 03 Sep 2020, 15:05 IST
