We now have the official poster for the upcoming UFC 242 pay-per-view (PPV) event. The action will go down from The Arena in Yas Island from Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
In the main event of the night, UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov will unify his title with interim champion Dustin Poirier. Nurmagomedov is undefeated in his mixed martial arts (MMA) career thus far. He takes on Poirier, who has been on a spectacular run at 155 pounds thus far.
Also, in the co-main event, Edson Barboza makes his return when he faces off against Paul Felder. Both men are two of the best strikers at lightweight, and should put on quite the show inside the Octagon. Earlier today (Thurs. August 1, 2019) the UFC released the official UFC 242 event poster.
