Another fight confirmed for UFC 242 in Abu Dhabi

UFC 242 is coming in Abu Dhabi, and you must have heard about it by now.

Tickets are nearly gone, we’ve got a look at the purpose-built stadium and there’s not long to go until it all kicks-off on September 7.

Fight fans from around the world were excited when the return of Khabib Nurmagomedov was confirmed for the event as he faces off against Dustin Poirier.

And now, slowly but surely more fights are being confirmed.

This week, while commentating on UFC 239, lightweight Paul Felder confirmed he will be coming to the capital to fight.

His opponent on the night? Edson Barboza, and UFC fans will already know there’s no love lost between these two.

Having previously faced-off back in July 2015, where Barboza won with a unanimous decision from the judges.

The rematch is sure to draw a lot of attention and will take place as part of the main card in Abu Dhabi.

In fact it’s expected that Foley vs Barboza will be the co-main event on the night.

We can’t wait.
6.15pm onwards, Sep 7. The Arena, Yas Island.
