The UFC have confirmed that the next defence of Khabib Nurmagomedov’s lightweight title will come against Dustin Poirier at UFC 242.
It had been expected that The Diamond would be next in-line for the lightweight champ following his UFC 236 victory over Max Holloway to win the interim-belt.
Now, according to the official Twitter account of the UFC, that fight has been sealed in stone.
