Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is inching closer to its UFC 223: “Khabib vs. Holloway” pay-per-view (PPV) event, scheduled for this Saturday night (April 7, 2018) inside Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
To help get mixed martial arts (MMA) fans amped for this weekend’s big shebang, the promotion will stage a special pre-fight press conference featuring the main and co-main event fighters.
That includes top lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov, who collides with featherweight champion Max Holloway after “Blessed” stepped up on just six days notice to replace the injured Tony Ferguson.
Joining them on the dais is UFC 223 co-headliner and current strawweight champion Rose Namajunas, who will try to repeat last November’s win over Joanna Jedrzejczyk and cement herself as the new face of the strawweight division.
The UFC 223 press conference gets underway today (Weds., April 4) LIVE at 4 p.m. ET in the embedded video player above and to check out the entire UFC 223 fight card and line up click here.
