Khabib Nurmagomedov’s hugely anticipated return to the Octagon on Fight Island, will be shown exclusively live on BT Sport Box Office on October 24th.
The unbeaten UFC lightweight champion will defend his belt for the first time since September 2019 against interim champion Justin Gaethje. In Gaethje, Khabib will face an opponent whose fights have not gone the distance since he joined the UFC. The American earned his title shot after replacing Khabib against Tony Ferguson in May and claiming his fourth knockout win in a row.
In the co-main event, more striking power will be on display as former UFC middleweight champion, Robert Whittaker, faces Jared Cannonier, who has won his last three fights by stoppage. Whittaker himself has 14 stoppages from 21 professional wins and has earnt a ‘Fight of the Night’ bonus on four separate occasions so viewers are set to be entertained.
Fans will be able to watch the main card action exclusively live on BT Sport Box Office, with coverage of the prelims available on BT Sport 2 and for anyone to watch for free on btsport.com, the BT Sport App or YouTube from 5-7pm.
