With each passing week it appears the UFC is putting on a high-profile event in another region of the world. For just the third time in the promotion’s history, the UFC travels to Abu Dhabi for an event. The United Arab Emirates hosts UFC 242 in what will undoubtedly be the biggest MMA event in the region in history. Here’s how you can watch.
The return of Khabib Nurmagomedov would be a big deal no matter where it took place. Fighting an interim champion who is as respected as Dustin Poirier doesn’t hurt the event’s appeal. Having Nurmagomedov come back to defend his UFC Lightweight title for the first time since he defeated Conor McGregor in Abu Dhabi takes things to another level. Nurmagomedov will be competing in front of a largely Muslim card, and while he has fans from various backgrounds, he has become a champion for the Islamic community.
Khabib Nurmagomedov is back in action at UFC 242. After defeating Conor McGregor in the biggest UFC fight of all time, Khabib is now a bonafide superstar in his own right, hoping to add to that perfect undefeated record of his. His opponent? Interim Lightweight champ Dustin Poirier, a super well-rounded competitor fresh off a spectacular win over Max Holloway in a five round war back at UFC 236. Can Khabib make it to 28-0? This is actually a more compelling match-up than you might think. Let’s break it all down. But first…
Start time? So this is a weird one. Most UFC cards kick off on a Saturday night, with the main card starting at 10 p.m. But with UFC 242 it’s different, the UFC is in Abu Dhabi. That makes for a fairly skewed timing situation. The event kicks off Saturday, Sept. 7, but the fights will kick off earlier than usual.
How to watch? This year the UFC entered a new partnership with ESPN. That’s great news for the UFC and the expansion of the sport of MMA, bad news for consumer choice. If you live in the US especially.
