UFC 223: Khabib vs Holloway
Saturday, April 7 at 10pm ET
UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway will attempt to make history at the Barclays Center on April 7, as he will face Khabib Nurmagomedov for the undisputed UFC lightweight championship in the main event of UFC 223. With a victory, Hawaii's Holloway will become the second fighter to hold two UFC titles simultaneously. Fresh from a pair of stoppage wins over Brazilian superstar Jose Aldo that established Holloway as the best featherweight in the world, "Blessed" is now chasing bigger game in the 155-pound division. Waiting for him is the 25-0 Nurmagomedov, who is coming off back to back wins over Michael Johnson and Edson Barboza on his way to a shot at championship gold.
In the co-main event, newly crowned strawweight champion Rose Namajunas is set to defend her title in a rematch against the former 115-pound queen, Joanna Jedrzejczyk. Wins against Tecia Torres and Michelle Waterson propelled “Thug” Rose to a title shot against Jedrzejcyzk this past November, and the 25-year-old shocked the world with a first-round knockout of the Polish superstar. Eager to regain her top spot in the division, Jedrzejczyk her sights set on a starting second championship reign in Brooklyn.
