UFC 242’s Ceremonial Weigh-In’s Ft. Khabib, Poirier, Felder Barboza & More

UFC 242’s ceremonial weigh-in’s live from Abu Dhabi just concluded and thankfully, the lightweight title clash in the night’s main-event is set to go ahead.

The question on the mind of every MMA fan on the planet right now is whether or not Dustin Poirier can be the man to hand the champion Khabib Nurmagomedov his first loss as a professional.

Of course, the Russian will enjoy some serious support from the home crowd and he, alongside all of his stablemates, will be considered favourites in terms of the betting odds.

And while the vast majority of the eyes will be fixed on the top-billed showdown of the night, there are more than enough reasons to tune in from the get-go – with several prospects, fan-favourites, and some fantastic matchups from top-to-bottom.

We actually compiled a list of the three underrated clashes on UFC 242 that should not be underrated – a list you can find here.

The fighters set to compete on tomorrow’s card faced off for the final time at today’s ceremonial weigh-ins and the video can be watched below:
