The Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, host UFC 223, featuring the Women’s Strawweight and Men’s Lightweight titles on the line.
The main event has Khabib “The Eagle” Nurmagmedov against “Raging” Al Iaquinta in a 5-round Lightweight Title bout. Iaquinta takes the fight on just over 24 hours notice. Nurmagomedov this week had been matched with Tony Ferguson, Max Holloway, Anthony Pettis, Paul Felder, & now Al Iaquinta.
The co-main event is a rematch as Joanna Jedrzejczyk looks to regain the UFC Women’s Strawweight title from “Thug” Rose Namajunas, who dethroned the Polish fighter by first round knock out, just over 4 months ago.
