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

Since the time before taking the throne in 2019, Israel Adesanya has talked with Paulo Costa about the possibility of competing for the championship. Currently, both boxers have an unbeaten record in the professional MMA when entering this match.

Israel Adesanya (19-0 MMA) is the defending mid-tier UFC champions. The Nigerian-born New Zealand puncher is considered to be the most skilled standing martial artist in the tournament at the moment. In return, Paulo Costa (13-0 MMA) is also considered the most capable fighter to usurp the throne “The Last Stylebender” with his fierce attack.

Israel Adesanya will face Paulo Costa as a coach

Not only on the ring, but the two hottest UFC middle-class punchers will also add a new responsibility. It is the coaching position of The Ultimate Fighter.

The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) – UFC’s popular reality TV show is expected to return soon. That is confirmed by President Dana White in a series of recent interviews on social networking site Reddit.

President Dana White only reveals the return of The Ultimate Fighter. He did not add any more details about the show that made audiences curious. Who will be the coach of the upcoming TUF season, who will lead the clash of new talent to the UFC.

When the UFC fight island events are taking place?

UFC Fight Island events are going to take place this October in Abu Dhabi. Dana White, UFC President, has confirmed Khabib Nurmagomedov will return to the octagon cage at the next Fight Island event.

UFC president confirmed Khabib will return in October at Fight Island event

Previously, Fight Island took place for 4 days, starting with UFC 251 on 11/7 and 3 events on July 15, July 18, and July 25. In particular, UFC 251 will have 3 championship matches. To ensure safety, the event took place without any audience.

Abu Dhabi is the venue for the UFC 251 event from July 12. It witnessed Kamaru Usman defeat Jorge Masvidal to successfully defend the semi-middleweight championship belt. UFC President Dana White seemed very pleased with what happened here and confirmed that the Fight Island event will return to Abu Dhabi in October with the biggest star Khabib Nurmagomedov.

With what UFC President Dana White has announced, fans will have a chance to witness Khabib Nurmagomedov’s octagon cage re-release in Abu Dhabi in October. The lightweight champion was unable to play after successfully defending his belt at UFC 242 last September. At the upcoming event, the betting odds for the fight island seem to be unpredictable.

The Eagle must miss the battle with Tony Ferguson at UFC 249. If he wants to regain his belt from interim champion Justin Gaethje, the Russian boxer will have to defeat his opponent at the Fight Island event in October to come.

When the UFC fight island events are taking place?

After all, Khabib Nurmagomedov’s return schedule in the Justin Gaethje match was confirmed by UFC President Dana White himself on October 24. Accordingly, Khabib Nurmagomedov’s opponent is still the person who currently holds the temporary title – “The Highlight” Justin Gaethje.

This will be the UFC lightweight championship match as expected. Currently, the location and event of this match has not been determined. However, it is likely that the Great Khabib – Gaethje war will take place at UFC 254, or UFC 255.

Initially, Khabib – Gaethje match was expected to lead UFC 253 on September 20. However, the events of the family greatly affected the preparation of the match for the Russian boxers. Perhaps this is the main reason why UFC decided to reschedule Khabib to fully focus on this match.

Is Jorge Masvidal really avoiding the competition with Usman?

Suggesting a rematch with Nate Diaz while probably competing with Kamaru Usman, is there any evasion from Jorge Masvidal?

On the eve of UFC 249 in April, Jorge Masvidal and defending champion Welterweight Kamaru Usman challenged each other to appear at the event. In particular, the Nigerian champion has accused Masvidal of not accepting competition, though he still claims that he is “free” and ready to confront anyone.

Recently, Masvidal’s suggestion of a rematch with Nate Diaz has made his theory of dodging Usman a reality. Although at the present time, Masvidal is a boxer with achievements, popularity and has built up a gripping story with the champion.

Masvidal is the most viable name for a title match against Kamaru Usman

Playing MMA since 2003 with nearly 50 times of the upper stage, only in 2019 did Masvidal’s name really reach the “world” status. Even during the first 7 years of joining UFC, “Gamebred” has not really won any competition. The BMF belt he earned when defeating Nate Diaz at UFC 244 was just a symbolic title.

Therefore, Masvidal’s act of not promoting a fight with Usman was considered to be a dodge and wanted to cling to the temporary glory of the BMF title. Some even argue that the Miami-based puncher is afraid of losing and losing the position to try to build in 2019.

Leon Edwards – the boxer who has an 8-match winning streak is the No. 2 contender candidate at Welterweight.

Currently, the Welterweight class has the most potential UFC fighters. Besides Jorge Masvidal and Leon Edwards, another emerging name, Gilbert Burns, has just made the list.

Defeating the former King Tyron Woodley at UFC on ESPN 9 over the weekend, Gilbert Burns immediately rose to No. 1 on the Welterweight chart. The absolute overwhelming performance of “Durinho” helped him to win the 6th straight and the first opportunity to compete at UFC right before his eyes.
