One of the biggest fights in UFC lightweight history is set for October 24th. On that night, champion Khabib Nurmagomedov will put up his belt against arguably his toughest challenger to date, interim champion Justin Gaethje, in the main event of UFC 254.

The co-main event will see former champion Robert Whittaker and Jared Cannonier facing off to see who gets to tangle with champ Israel Idesanya next.

Here’s how the card looks right now, after some recent changes. A few fights have been nixed due to COVID, but it’s still pretty deep. The event will take place in the afternoon in North America so the European crowd can watch Khabib in prime time.
