The day is finally approaching. This Saturday, UFC 254 arrives at a much earlier time than usual, but brings a confrontation well off the curve directly from the Fight Island in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

In the main event of the event, lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov returns to the UFC octagon and faces American Justin Gaethje , interim champion in the same division. The long-awaited confrontation will be valid for five rounds.

In the co-main event of the event, former middleweight champion Robert Whittaker returns to the octagon and faces ascendant Jared Cannonier for the under 84kg division. In fact, the winner can be chosen to be the next challenger for champion Israel Adesanya.

Other notable fights of the event will be between Alexander Volkov and Walt Harris for the heavyweight division and the meeting between Ion Cutelaba and Magomed Ankalaev for the division of up to 93kg.
