Nurmagomedov-Poirier Unifier Official for UFC 242

Dustin-Poirier-Khabib-Nurmagomedov

Dustin-Poirier-Khabib-Nurmagomedov

Dustin Poirier is getting his wish. Khabib plans three bouts. This is not an ideal situation for a UFC champion.

Poirier's April triumph over Holloway was the first time the Hawaiian had lost since McGregor beat him in 2013 and he'll back himself to be the first man to hand Khabib a loss.

It had been expected that The Diamond would be next in-line for the lightweight champ following his UFC 236 victory over Max Holloway to win the interim-belt. He won the vacant belt by unanimous decision against Al Iaquinta in April past year. This was Poirier's first crack at UFC gold, in his almost decade-long career.

Nurmagomedov is set to face interim titleholder Dustin Poirier at UFC 242.

According to U.S. media reports, Nurmagomedov's cousin Abubakar Nurmagomedov and a teammate Zubaira Tukhugov will also compete in Abu Dhabi, with the rest of the card yet to be announced. He joined the UFC in 2012 and became the first Russian and the first Sunni Muslim to win a title in the promotion. It also starts a stream of future events to come, for the region. Shortly after winning his second UFC title, "GSP" vacated the 185-pound strap.

Bharat Box Office Day 2: Salman Khan Starrer Holds Well On Thursday!
Director Ali Abbas Zafar has once again proved that if he has Salman Khan then he will going to have a storm at the box office. Bahubali: The Conclusion ranks second with Rs 37.53 crore and Thugs Of Hindostan is at the fourth slot with Rs 26.

Poirier (25-5, 1 NC) is riding a six-fight win streak.

Since moving up to 155 pounds, Poirer has enjoyed the best parts of his career.

St-Pierre, of course, is now retired, and has not fought since late 2017, when he submitted Michael Bisping to win the UFC middleweight title. However, it seems like a safe bet this bout is the main event.

The fight will be held September 7 at UFC 242 in Abu Dhabi.
