The complete UFC 223 fight card will air later this evening (Sat., April 7, 2018) on two different stations -- FOX Sports 1 and pay-per-view (PPV) -- as well as online via “Fight Pass” digital network. UFC 223’s “Prelims” undercard will begin at 6:15 p.m. ET online via “Fight Pass” before transitioning to the FOX Sports 1 television station at 8 p.m. ET (programming details). Once the UFC 223 undercard is complete inside Barclays Arena in Brooklyn, N.Y., the action will pick up on PPV at 10 p.m. ET, starting with a Lightweight match up between Joe Lauzon vs. Chris Gruetzemacher. Then it’s a fun 145-pound scrap between Featherweight super prospect, Zabit Magomedsharipov, who will look to keep his 10-fight unbeaten streak intact when he locks horns with Kyle Bochniak. Third from the top of the PPV bill is a scrap between Top 15-ranked Featherweight contenders Renato Moicano (No. 11) and Calvin Kattar (No. 13).

Leading UFC 223’s charge is a re-worked main event between No. 2-ranked Lightweight contender, Khabib Nurmagomedov, against last-minute replacement, Al Iaquinta. Nurmagomedov was originally scheduled to fight Tony Ferguson for the Conor McGregor’s undisputed 155-pound title; however, “El Cucuy” was forced off the card after suffering a “freak” injury. Featherweight champion, Max Holloway, attempted to save the show on just six days’ notice, but New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC) — being entirely incompetent — decided “Blessed” couldn’t finish his weight cut even though it never bothered to have him examined by a physician. So, “Raging Al” got the call, but unfortunately for him, he will be ineligible to win the belt because he weighed in .2 pounds above the division limit. Super confusing, I know. Meanwhile, in the co-main event, Rose Namajunas will be out to prove that her shocking first round technical knockout finish of the previously undefeated women’s Strawweight champion, Joanna Jedrzejczyk, at UFC 217 back in Nov. 2017 was no fluke.

UFC 223 is a solid two-headed title monster that is buttressed by a slew of fun fights — it’s going to be fun. UFC 223: “Khabib vs. Iaquinta” will cost $64.95 to watch on PPV (exclusions may, and often do, apply based on geographic location).
