The monthly combat sports extravaganza is again greeting the spectators in October as UFC hosts its coveted UFC 254. With a flurry of excellent fighters in the UFC roster battling it out for ultimate glory, all eyes will be on their favorite stars and the fate of those championships.
The UFC 254 fight card will feature the Early Prelims, Preliminary, and the Main Cards like always. While the Early Prelims contain bantamweight and catchweight bouts, the Preliminary Card features a high-profile heavyweight bout between Stefan Struve and Tai Tuivasa. There is also a middleweight match between Jacob Malkoun and Phil Hawes.
But all eyes will be on the Main Event in the main card that features the ‘Eagle’ Khabib Nurmagomedov after his last impressive victory in 2019. The Russian superstar with the most enviable record in the UFC, has KO’d Connor Mcgregor in 2018 and comfortably made short work of Dustin Poirier in the UFC 242.
His longest undefeated stint in the UFC lightweight division makes this reigning lightweight champion one of the biggest fan favorites in the entire roster. With a rising star Justin Gaethje stepping in to replace Khabib in UFC 249 and dispatching Tony Ferguson comfortably, a clash between the pair has escalated into the most eagerly-awaited bout of the season.
Apart from the main event, the co-main event also features an exciting middleweight bout between Robert Whittaker and Jared Cannonier. On top of this, the main card features a heavyweight bout between Alexander Volkov and Walt Harris, whereas the lightweight clash is happening between Rafael Dos Anjos and Islam Makhachev.
The women’s flyweight clash is set to happen between Lauren Murphy and Cynthia Calvillo whereas the light heavyweight match features Magomed Ankalaev and Ion Cutelaba.
The entire UFC 254 will be hosted at the Flash Forum arena on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
