We are just two months away from UFC 223 “Ferguson vs. Khabib” and the anticipation continues to build.
The pay-per-view (PPV) event is scheduled to take place on Apr. 7 from inside Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, and feature a main event clash between interim UFC lightweight champion Tony Ferguson and undefeated Russian sensation Khabib Nurmagomedov, while a women’s strawweight title rematch between champion Rose Namajunas and Joanna Jedrzejczyk serves as the co-attraction.
In effort to build more steam leading into UFC 223, the promotion has just dropped the official poster (shown above) and it looks downright awesome. We always knew Namajunas was a tough little cookie from her nickname “Thug,” but the 115-pound champion is looking extra mean for this one.
This will be the fourth time UFC is trying to book Ferguson vs. Khabib so hopefully the main event holds up. If it doesn’t, Jedrzejczyk will be front and center as she attempts to avenge a brutal knockout defeat to Namajunas back at UFC 217.
So, Maniacs, how does this poster stack up against the others?
