Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) held its official open workouts ahead of the upcoming UFC 223: “Khabib vs. Holloway” pay-per-view (PPV) event, taking place this Saturday night (April 7, 2018) inside Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
Right after the UFC 223 pre-fight press conference, which you can watch in its entirety right here.
UFC 223 will be headlined by the lightweight title fight pitting top 155-pound contender Khabib Nurmagomedov against reigning featherweight champion Max Holloway after “Blessed” stepped up on just six days notice to replace the injured Tony Ferguson.
Also getting her hands dirty in the “Empire State” 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.
Watch all four combatants work up a sweat in the embedded video player above. And you can watch the entire workout from start to finish below:
