Khabib Nurmagomedov is expecting to seal his legacy against interim lightweight champion Dustin Poirier in Abu Dhabi.

The two men will contest a title unification bout at UFC 242, Abu Dhabi's third UFC event and the first since the UFC and the Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) agreed a five-year partnership earlier this year.

Being held at The Arena, the new indoor venue on Yas Island that will also stage UFC 242 the following evening, the weigh-in for Khabib vs Poirier starts at 6pm.

The free-to-attend event adds further excitement to the expansive programme for Abu Dhabi Showdown Week - the week-long series of entertainment and lifestyle events created by DCT Abu Dhabi - to support the UAE capital’s mega UFC 242 event on September 7.
