Watch UFC 223 Online Free
After what’s been a relatively dull and uninspiring winter– not simply weather-wise, but for the UFC as well– fight fans lastly appear to have something to be thrilled about as we start the still-too-slow transition to spring in some parts of the country. The very first “huge” fight card of the year is upon us. UFC 223 happens on Saturday, April 7, and it has numerous title battles and identifiable names to choose it.
We’ve all heard the expression, “Third time’s the appeal,” right? Well, in this case, we hoped the fourth time would be the appeal. However, it appears a bout between UFC interim lightweight champ Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov simply isn’t indicated to be. This is the fourth stopped working effort to match the two fighters together, as Ferguson needed to withdraw on April Fool’s Day, of all the times.
Since the UFC prepares to remove existing champion Conor McGregor. Will Khabib cement his location as one of the pound-for-pound finest fighters on the planet by becoming a two-division champion? Or will Nurmagomedov finally receive UFC gold and keep his undefeated record undamaged?
The co-headliner is a rematch of the most significant upset of 2017, when Rose Namajunas dismissed
Joanna Jędrzejczyk in the females’s strawweight department. Namajunas surprised the world when she finished the formerly unbeaten Jędrzejczyk at UFC 217 with a first-round knockout. The Polish fighter appears hellbent on restoring the title from Namajunas and reminding everybody that she is among the best female fighters in the world. Will Namajunas prove her win wasn’t a fluke and that she is perhaps the only fighter who act as Jędrzejczyk’s kryptonite?
The two title fights at UFC 223 complete what is among the UFC’s most strong offerings to this day. The lineup also boasts Michael Chiesa, Anthony Pettis, Paul Felder, Al Iaquinta, Karolina Kowalkiewicz and Felice Herrig.
