UFC 242 will feature the UFC’s return to Abu Dhabi on September 7th. It has also been rumored that the UFC are looking to make Khabib and Poirier the main event for that card.
Muhammad is rising fast in the welterweight division. After we last seen him get a decision win over Curtis Millender in April at UFC 236. He holds a 6-3 UFC record, but he went 5-1 since his loss to Vicente Luque back in 2016. He holds a 15-3 pro MMA record, and has never been submitted.
Sato made his UFC debut back in late April with a second round knock out over Ben Saunders. He holds a 15-2 MMA record. 12 out of his 15 wins are finishes and only 2 of those 12 finishes are submissions. He is a skilled striker and will be looking to keep the fight on its feet at all times.
Looks like slowly but surly the UFC is forgetting about its UFC 240 PPV in Canada. We see another action packed fight get signed for UFC 242, while we stare at a massive card in UFC 241. It is rumored that they are looking to make Ortega vs. Zabit On UFC 240 but no confirmation yet.
