UFC 223 Venue & Date-Tony Ferguson vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov
UFC 223 Venue & Date:
UFC 223 will take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on 7th April, 2018.
I can’t wait to see the best fighters go toe to toe & I am super excited to witness the fights.
The fight between Khabib & Ferguson was scheduled before at UFC 209 but was cancelled because of Khabib being unfit at that time.
Khabib is my favorite fighter because the way he trains is amazingly different from other UFC fighters.
I remember Khabib’s fight with Michael, where he was literally yelling at Dana to give him a shot at the title & why not, Khabib has proved to be one of the best fighters. He always puts on a great show…!
As I mentioned earlier, the way khabib trains is different as he fights with a real bear and is always trying to work on his stamina, training at higher altitudes.
Khabib has a 25 Fight win streak and is so explosive with his take down and grappling game. On the other hand Ferguson is a champ for a reason and can attack from different angles using elbows, knees, punches & kicks. Winner of this fight is most likely to fight Conor McGregor in future but the status is not clear as Dana White said that Conor might come back and fight & that it’s not fair with the other fighters to keep waiting for Conor to come back and fight. The Belt should be defended in a given time period but I guess, if you have earned the amount of money which Conor did, most probably, you will be busy exploring other big options to earn more and more. I wonder if Conor comes back, will he still be in that shape and mode to fight well as Mixed Martial Arts is all about being in practice and good shape. The game has evolved so much during the past few years that you can’t say anything with certainty, though we can predict up to some extent about who wins and who loses.
Dana White officially said that the fight between Tony Ferguson & Khabib Nurmagomedov would be for official lightweight championship belt & not for the interim title but I wish both fighters the best in gaining weight for the fight.
The Co-Main event will feature a rematch between current champion Rose Namajunas and Joanna for the UFC Women’s Strawweight Championship. I remember Rose knocking out Joanna in the first round and I said wow! I can’t wait to watch the rematch take place as I am myself a big UFC fan. Let’s see what Joanna has to offer this time. The last time they met was at UFC 217 which took place in November, 2017.
