Khabib Nurmagomedov makes his first appearance inside the Octagon for more than a year as he takes on Justin Gaethje for the undisputed lightweight crown on Fight Island.

Unbeaten in 28 fights in his professional MMA career, Khabib can bolster his pound-for-pound credentials with a win over the resurgent Gaethje, who secured the interim 155lb crown after defeating Tony Ferguson earlier this year.

Nicknamed ‘The Highlight’, all-action superstar Gaethje has pocketed a performance bonus on each of his seven UFC assignments so far and, coming into the biggest fight of his career, is fancied by some to cause an upset that would surely bag an eighth.

Teeing up the main event, fight fans will be salivating at the prospect of watching Robert Whittaker’s Fight Island return as he takes on Jared Cannonier in a potential middleweight title eliminator.

Cannonier, the self-styled ‘Killa Gorilla’, has been promised a shot be champion Adesanya next but must impress against a rejuvenated Whittaker who is himself hoping to book a rematch against the Kiwi king.

On top of that, we’ll have action from the heavyweight division between Russian giant Alexander Volkov and America’s Walt Harris, while the long-awaited light-heavyweight rematch between Magomed Ankalaev and Ion Cutelaba kicks off the main card in style.
