As most of you already know it’s been a crazy week in the world of MMA. UFC 223 has completely had a makeover a few times now and returned with a big bang.
First of all, the Irish sensation and his Dublin team stormed a223 bus, damaging the windows and injuring two fighters. Michael Chiesa suffered facial lacerations and Ray Borg was pulled for having problems with his eyes. The UFC was forced to restructure the card twice and decided to book a title fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Al Iaquinta. However, if the New York native wins the bout, he won’t be labeled as the official lightweight champion. It’s a crazy weekend, mostly due to McGregor’s chaotic behavior.
Besides all the craziness, UFC 223 will go on as scheduled with an exciting co-main event between Rose Namajunas and former champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk. The main card airs on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET and first portion will air on FOX Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET.
