Check out Bloody Elbow’s fight night and post-fight coverage for UFC 223 on Saturday, April 7th from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Fighting in the main event is a lightweight pairing of Khabib Nurmagomedov and late-notice replacement Al Iaquinta, filling in for the medically unfit to compete Max Holloway, who was filling in for the injured Tony Ferguson. Only Khabib can win the lightweight title, as Iaquinta did not weigh-in at the 155-pound limit.
The co-main event is a strawweight championship bout between Rose Namajunas and Joanna Jedrzejczyk, in a rematch of their November 2017 encounter, which saw Namajunas score a shocking first-round KO.
