The wait is over! After 4 cancellations and 5 years of waiting fans will finally get to witness the two undefeated UFC champions battle it out in the octagon on 18th April.
We all know the incredible rivalry between Khabib and Tony; they’ve been trying to set a match since 2015 but never went through with it due to several reasons. Now that Dana has finally set a date, the anticipation is sky rocketing! It’s bound to be one of the most exhilarating matches of the season.
Khabib is a born wrestler, he’s been wrestling since he was young and has a stellar MMA record with 0 defeats. His impeccable grappling skills are proof of that, it is exactly how he managed to defeat such powerful opponents like McGregor, Al laquinta and Poirier.
Ferguson, also known as ‘El Cucuy’, however is known for his mercilessness. He’s said to be a monster inside the octagon with his punches and extremely fast moves and attacks; he can take down his opponent in no time.
Although, with the corona virus outbreak, there has been speculation surfacing that the match may have to be postponed until further notice. Dana White addressed these concerns, reassuring the fans that even though he had to cancel 3 events, this was one event that he would not cancel under any circumstance. He will make the match happen following government guidelines.
“We’re postponing the next three events, but Tony Ferguson vs Khabib (on) April 18 is still on,” White said on ESPN’s SportsCenter. “That will still happen.”
“We’re going to follow these guidelines to not have more than 10 people in a room,” White said. “We’re hoping this all clears up by April. This fight is going to happen. No crowd whatever it takes. It probably won’t even be in the United States, but this fight is going to happen.”
Now that we have confirmation that the fight is going to take place, it doesn’t matter where because you can always choose to watch it online on Firestick and we’re going to teach you exactly how to do so, keep reading!
