UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is going to face off the interim UFC Lightweight Champion Dustin Poirier at UFC 242 after dominating Conor McGregor. The main card is expecting to start at 10 p.m. The event kicks off Saturday, Sept. 7, but the fights will kick off earlier.
The fight is worth to watch?
Why not? Nurmagomedov is one of the great destroyers and was unbeaten in the history of UFC. Can we expect someone special’s presence who will beat him up? I think yes we can!
Although Khabib has beaten former Ultimate Fighting Championship featherweight and lightweight champion McGregor but it doesn’t mean he became king of UFC. There are many fighters left who are waiting to fight him and Dustin Poirier is one of them.
I think you should not miss the fight. Keep your eyes on TV screen.
