Khabib vs Gaethje at UFC 254 to cost £19.95 on BT Sport box office as champion fights for first time in thirteen months

GOT THE KHAB FARE?

UK fight fans will have to pay £19.95 to watch Khabib Nurmagomedov’s return at UFC 254 tonight.

The unbeaten MMA star will climb into the Octagon to defend his lightweight title against Justin Gaethje.

And his highly-anticipated comeback on Fight Island will be shown exclusively live on BT Sport Box Office.

Coverage of the prelims will be available on BT Sport 2 and for anyone to watch for free on btsport.com, the BT Sport App or YouTube from 5pm.

The pay-per-view main card then gets underway at 7pm.

Khabib puts his belt on the line for the first time since beating Dustin Poirier in Abu Dhabi in September 2019, an event which was also priced at £19.95.

Interim champ Gaethje earned his title shot by defeating Tony Ferguson in May after stepping in to replace the Dagestani star.

That was his fourth consecutive knockout win and he is yet to go the distance since joining UFC three years ago.

There is also plenty of other action on the card - especially the co-main event.

Former UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker battles Jared Cannonier.

The ex-belt holder has recorded 14 stoppages from his 21 pro bouts and has claimed the ‘Fight of the Night’ bonus on four occasions.

Cannonier comes into the contest on the back of three straight victories.

 Those who purchase the action can watch it through BT TV, Virgin TV and Sky or online via the web or the BT Sport Box Office App.
