UFC 254 Khabib vs. Gaethje: Watch The PPV Opener
Ahead of next Saturday's massive, Khabib Nurmagomedov - Justin Gaethje bout, the UFC has shared out the PPV opener narrated by Ron Perlman.
Khabib versus Gaethje
Gaethje earned the right to face the lightweight champ at UFC 254, by stopping Tony Ferguson this past May and winning the interim belt. The victory was Gaethje’s (22-2) four straight, and it was also the fourth time in a row he stopped his opponent.
Nurmagomedov (28-0), meanwhile, has yet to fight in 2020 as earlier this year he was stranded in Russia, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The renowned fighter hasn’t fought since last September, when he submitted Dustin Poirier.
Well, as you can see by watching the clip below, the pay-per-view opener reminds folks that Khabib is one of the most accomplished, dominant fighters in the game’s history. It also notes that Gaethje is one of the most dangerous lightweights in the sport.
