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.

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.
