UFC 242’s Confirmed Fight-Card In Its Entirety

UFC 242 fight-week is upon us and with that in mind, here’s the Abu Dhabi event’s entire confirmed fight card in full.

Of course, the bulk of the attention will be fixated on the scintillating lightweight title clash taking place in the night’s main-event but with several guaranteed barn-burners to be found from top-to-bottom, UFC 242 is looking set to be a memorable night.

Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island is the venue for the event once September 7 comes around and the show expected to stand as a real coming-out party for the lightweight king and blossoming superstar, Khabib Nurmagomedov, if he can get past the challenger Dustin Poirier, expect his status to grow exponentially.

As far as volatile co-main events are concerned, the rematch between Edson Barboza and Paul Felder is one of those matchups you can all-but-guarantee will be violent and with rising prospects like Islam Makhachev, Mairbek Taisumov, and Zubaira Tukhugov also set to feature, there will be more than enough reasons to tune in when the time comes.
