UFC 242: Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Dustin Poirier
UFC 242: Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Dustin Poirier

UFC is travelling to UAE in Abu Dhabi as they are set to appear at The Arena to do battle. Heading the card is none other than Khabib Nurmagomedov and Dustin Poirier. The two men will be engaged in one of the most important battles of their career as they face each other in the Octagon.

Khabib is currently the UFC Lightweight Champion, while Dustin Poirier won the Interim UFC Lightweight Championship. The winner will receive the Unified Championship, something that both fighters will be working for to stake their claim. Given that Khabib has never lost a fight, he heads into it as the favorite, however, if there is one man who can defeat him, it's Dustin Poirier.

This will be the first time in 10 months that Khabib enters the Octagon, ever since the debacle at UFC 229 following his win over Conor McGregor. Laying the past to rest, the two will try to prove they are the better man.

In the co-main event, Paul Felder will be facing none other than Edson Barboza, as they try to work their ways up the ranking.
