Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov, and interim title holder, Justin Gaethje, will collide in an epic title unification match at UFC 254 this Saturday (Oct. 24, 2020).
The winner will become the undisputed 155-pound champion and will likely face former Bellator MMA Lightweight champion, Michael Chandler, in 2021. For Khabib, it’s his chance to add on to his ever-impressive resume, while Gaethje is looking to end "The Eagle's" undefeated run, which currently sits at 28 straight wins.
Before the two men get it on in the center of the Octagon, the promotion has released the second trailer to promote the big ESPN+-streamed PPV card, which will also feature a Middleweight bout between Robert Whittaker and Jared Cannonier.
