  • Las Vegas. Barboza is scheduled to fight Anthony Pettis Saturday in Las Vegas

The t-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas will play host to the event and given its status as the UFC's end-of-the-year event, expect to hear big announcements on this one soon. No main event for the card has been unveiled as of yet.

Nurmagomedov is officially booked to fight Edson Barboza at UFC 219 on December 30 in Las Vegas, after failing to make it to the Octagon for an interim title fight earlier this year.

The UFC has not yet made the bout official. "It's a war! Every time I step into the octagon, fans know it will be a great show".

Barboza now sits at No. 3 in the UFC lightweight division, while Nurmagomedov still maintains the No. 2 spot. This fight is going to be a big war.

Should he successfully make it to the cage, it will be the first appearance in the octagon since UFC 205 in November of previous year for Khabib Nurmagomedov.

A kindhearted nurse went above and beyond the call of duty to bring comfort to one of her patients who is dying of cancer. For hours, the nurse comforted Smith as her anesthesia began to wane , CBS reported.


Flying somewhat under the radar through all of this has been Brazil's Edson Barboza.

Nurmagomedov, a risky wrestler and sambo champion, hasn't fought since November 2016, when he scored a submission victory over Michael Johnson at UFC 205.

Barboza is on a three-fight win streak, with victories over Beneil Dariush, Gilbert Melendez and Anthony Pettis. Originally slated to fight current interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson back in March, Nurmagomedov instead wound up in the hospital after experiencing issues trying to slip into the 155-pound threshold and was not medically cleared to fight as a result.

Khabib Nurmagomedov is at long last returning to the UFC octagon, in a fight with title implications. Or, if the UFC manages to book McGregor-Ferguson, Nurmagomedov could end up facing the victor of that bout. "Everyone knows my game. Let's see if he'll succeed".
