UFC 254 price: How much does PPV cost to watch Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Justin Gaethje on ...

Khabib Nurmagomedov finally makes his long-awaited return to the Octagon to defend his lightweight belt at UFC 254 in Abu Dhabi against Justin Gaethje.

Nurmagomedov (28-) puts his title and 28-fight unbeaten streak on the line in his first UFC event since September 2019. The champ last defeated Dustin Poirier by submission at UFC 242. The fight will be Nurmagomedov's third title defense and the first since his father passed away in May. 

Gaethje (22-2) won the interim title in May, stepping in for Nurmagomedov who was not allowed to leave Russia due to the global pandemic. In his place, Gaethje defeated Tony Ferguson by technical knockout. Despite Gaethje's strong wrestling pedigree, he is known for his aggressive stand-up fighting style, finishing 19 of his 22 fights by knockout or technical knockout.

UFC 254's co-main event between middleweights Robert Whittaker and Jared Cannonier has potential title ramifications with UFC president Dana White declaring that a Cannonier win would set him up for a shot at Israel Adesanya's belt.
