Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) held “Ultimate Media Day” earlier today to promote the Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Dustin Poirier lightweight title unification bout, locked and loaded for the upcoming UFC 242 pay-per-view (PPV) main event on Sat., Sept. 7, 2019 inside The Arena on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.
At the conclusion of the pre-fight festivities, Nurmagomedov, the reigning UFC lightweight champion, came face-to-face with the current interim 155-pound titleholder, Dustin Poirier. So too, did veteran strikers Edson Barboza and Paul Felder, who run it back in the lightweight co-main event after already scoring “Fight of the Night” at UFC on FOX 16 in Chicago back in 2015, which ended in favor of the Brazilian.
