In one of the most highly anticipated match-ups of recent times, BT Sport Box Office is bringing UFC fans all the unmissable action of UFC 242: KHABIB vs. POIRIER on Saturday 7 September in Abu Dhabi.
Last year, lightweight champion Khabib “The Eagle” Nurmagomedov grabbed the world’s attention by defeating Conor McGregor in a fight guaranteed to go down in UFC history. His return to the Octagonâ has been greeted with huge excitement from UFC fans who have been eager to see the 30-year-old back in action.
Dustin “The Diamond” Poirier approaches the bout on the back of a six-fight unbeaten streak dating back to February 2017. In his last outing, he won the interim lightweight title at UFCâ 236 by defeating Max Holloway via unanimous decision. With the Octagon travelling to Abu Dhabi for the first time since 2014, the world waits to see whether American Poirier can make his own history and claim Khabib’s title on the biggest stage of all.
