UFC 254 with the participation of extremely powerful boxers

With the appearance of the hottest punches in weight categories, UFC 254 is expected by the audience to be the best quality Fight Card event of the year.

Tony vs. Dustin is likely to do Co-Main Event for Khabib vs. Dustin Justin.

Thus, all 4 punchers in the Main/Co-Main Event of UFC 254 are boxers who have and are holding the Lightweight title. When Khabib was holding the throne, the trio Tony – Dustin – Justin took turns holding the temporary belt.

But just 2 matches are not enough, besides, UFC 254 Main Card also has the appearance of two former champions – Robert Whittaker (former middle-class king) and Rafael Dos Anjos (former light king).

After overcoming “Gorilla” Darren Till, Robert Whittaker humiliated Dana White with “Killa Gorilla” Jared Cannonier. Having played in heavyweight before moving down to two weight classes, Cannonier’s mighty was the biggest threat that Whittaker faced.

The remaining former king, Rafael Dos Anjos, will encounter Khabib’s brother Islam Makhachev. Although not well known to the fan community, Islam Makhachev is considered the closest martial artist who can inherit the legacy that Khabib left behind.

The mission to welcome the new generation of former kings

Robert Whittaker vs. Jared Cannonier, Rafael Dos Anjos vs. Islam Makhachev. The Dagestan puncher won the world Sambo gold medal and possesses striking skills that are not inferior to his senior. In recent matches, Islam has performed well against world-class grapplers such as Davi Ramos or young talent Arman Tsarukyan.

It can be said that Rafael Dos Anjos is the most famous challenge. He is also the most difficult that Islam has to face. Even though its peak period, but the level and comprehensiveness of the “RDA” is a worthy test for Islam to win a ticket to the Top 10 light category.

Zabit vs. Yair – Two beautiful striking punches were also targeted for UFC 254

Finally, the matchup between the two most beautiful striker Featherweight: Zabit Magomedsharipov vs. Yair Rodriguez is also scheduled.

The venue has not been determined yet, but UFC 254 will likely be moved to “Duel Island” – Fight Island instead of Las Vegas as recent events.

Is Israel Adesanya vs Paulo Costa scheduled at UFC 253?

After the waiting time, the two hottest talents of UFC Middleweight, Israel Adesanya, and Paulo Costa were scheduled to face off at UFC 253.

According to sources from the Combate site of Brazil. UFC mid-range match between defending Israeli champions Adesanya and Paulo Costa – the second-ranked puncher in the weight category will take place at UFC 253 in September.

Paulo Costa and confirmation for next September

Initially, UFC 253 was expected to be led by the title match between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethhje. The exact venue has not been determined yet. It will be either in Las Vegas or the “Duel Island” in Abu Dhabi. Costa has made audiences believe that the UFC is placing a lot of expectations on the sales of this event.

Besides, about the possibility that Khabib could not return in September after his father’s death, Adesanya vs. Costa could also be an alternative to the event’s main match. Although not as charismatic as Khabib, the match between the two punches above is also what UFC audiences are expecting.

Israel Adesanya vs. Paulo Costa finally has a formal appointment
