At least one highly anticipated UFC lightweight main event appears like it will make it all the way to the Octagon.
While Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov’s match-up has now been canceled on four occasions, including last week’s UFC 223, a lightweight bout between top contenders Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje is one step close to fruition after they stepped on the scale on Friday in Arizona.
Poirier and Gaethje is a fight that promises fireworks. Both men are known for pushing their limits in the cage, never backing down from a brutal throwdown.
Now that they’ve both made weight, unless something unexpected happens, we should see if they deliver on the anticipation.
