UFC 223 new event trailer featuring two title fights


UFC 223 Holloway vs Nurmagomedov

UFC 223 is held on April 8 (April 7 in the US) at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The event comprises 13 bouts with two titles contested on the night.

The main event features the reigning featherweight champion Max Holloway who moves up a weight class contesting for the lightweight title. His opponent is Khabib Nurmagomedov, who was initially lined up against the interim champion in the division Tony Ferguson. The bout fell off when the latter was forced to withdraw due to knee injury.

The co-main event is a highly anticipated rematch between the defending women’s strawweight champion Rose Namjunas and the former champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk. The pair first met last November, when the latter was making her sixth title defense. Facing the defeat by knockout in the first round she got an immediate rematch.
